YOUR GREATER IS COMING
An Excerpt from Chapter 1
We all face setbacks in life, things we don’t understand. We may have lost a loved one, had a friend walk out of our relationship, or are dealing with an illness. When we go through loss and bad breaks, it’s easy to think that’s the way it’s always going to be. But our God is a God of restoration. He doesn’t stop every difficulty, and He doesn’t keep us from every challenge. But He promises He will pay us back for the wrongs. He will restore what’s been stolen. David says in Psalm 71, “You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but You will restore me to even greater honor.” The suffering is a setup. God allows the difficulty, not to make you miser- able but to restore you to greater honor. He never brings you out the same. He makes the enemy pay for bringing the trouble.
When you’re in tough times, you need to remind yourself that it’s not how your story ends. The loneliness, the bad break, or the anxiety is not your destiny. Greater is coming—greater joy, greater strength, greater relationships.
