Topic: SET SETBACKS BACKWARD
Bible Reading: Exodus 2:11-15
13….”And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
14….And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
15….Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.”
🔥Moses was made by God as a fulfilment for the prophecy of Genesis 15:13. He was sent by God to deliver the Jews from bondages in Egypt before the prophesied 400 years, but the spirit and power of setback in Exodus 2:14, came in through one of the Jews. Setbacks are whatever serve to hinder someone’s progress in life. Things like sicknesses, people, cultures, tribal sentiments, etc. The accusation action of that Jew against Moses for the murder of the Egyptian, set the Jews back, and prolonged their stay in captivity for extra 30 years. This shows that many people are where they are today by their own making.
🔥🔥The mother and beginning of all setbacks is found in Gen 3:1-19. There, Adam agreed to obey his wife, rather than God; that was how setback kick started. Since he was the foundation of all humans, his behaviour sets the entire human race backward. This foundational setback produced all the others; like Cain setting Abel back, Jacob setting Esau back, etc. We also have social setbacks such as landlords setting tenants back by evil foundation and secret demonic altars in the compound; even wicked friends setting their friends back through evil counsels.
🔥🔥🔥The dangers of setback are numerous, such as: prolong suffering (like the Jews’ extra 30 years in Egypt), defeat (as Achan caused in Josh 7:1-5), enslavement (as Esau was subject to by Jacob in Gen 27:39-40), imprisonment (as Joseph’s brothers caused Joseph to go through in his early days in Egypt). But the good news today is that, whoever is used by satan to set us back, will never live to enjoy his expectations. Achan that set the Jews back in the battle of Ai, died in the valley of Achor. Rebekah that set Esau back, never lived to see Jacob’s prosperity. All our setback instigators will die before us in Jesus’ name.
🙏I command every technique employed by the enemy to set me back to fail in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, every family foundational setback, taking a toll on my lineage negatively, loose your hold over me now, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My father my father, every setback I am experiencing that is a product of the compound am living in, turn it against the evil landlord, in Jesus’ name.
