There is no breakthrough without follow-through.

There is no breakthrough without follow-through. If we do not turn encounter into an ongoing experience then we have met God but not been transformed by Him.

Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him

Standard

Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. “I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.

Isaiah 42:1, 6, 16

God will use all things to bring about the greater things He has in store – for His glory, and your good!

What we see now as a disappointment we may later understand as a heavenly redirection. God is getting you in a position to receive blessings you might not even know to ask for. Paul and Silas set out for Asia, but ended up being the first to bring the gospel to Europe! (Acts 16:7) God had something even greater in store than what they originally had in mind.

Rejection is nothing more than redirection. God will use all things to bring about the greater things He has in store – for His glory, and your good!
