The Comeback

September 21, 2022-

Most people enjoy great comeback stories.

Beyond just business and athletic comeback stories, the Bible has many bounce-back stories of people who endured physical, emotional, spiritual, or financial setbacks but refused to quit and receive a reward from God for their perseverance despite their uphill battle.

We sincerely appreciate the unbelievable power of individuals who refuse to give in to life’s challenges. A transformative event is impressive and continues to inspire many by consistently preaching the power of work ethic and discipline.

The Bible is full of comeback stories. It starts with the original comeback story of Adam and Eve. The couple had everything, yet they sinned. God punished them, and He restored them. Then, there is Joseph, Moses, Job, and Peter, who all experienced comebacks. Jesus, in His death and resurrection, performed history’s most remarkable comeback story of all by rising from the dead. This story reminds us that anything is possible.

Quite a list of comebacks, right?

Paul (who had his share of comeback stories) spoke these encouraging words when he said, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

God is in the business of giving fresh beginnings to people. He gives hope to the hopeless. Perhaps your setback paves the way for a comeback.
