We all go through situations that are unfair; life has thrown you a curve, it’s not what you had planned; even though life is not always fair, God IS fair, and if you will put your trust in Him, and not get bitter, but just keep moving forward, God has promised He will pay you back for every unfair thing that has happened; don’t let one bad break ruin the rest of your life, keep you from the amazing future God has in store. What happened may have been wrong, what they did may have put you at a disadvantage, that was unfair, but what they did cannot stop your destiny, they don’t have the final say, God has the final say.
I remember a time I was doing some casual labor at Anestar Precious Girls High School in Nakuru where we were preparing to cement an underground water tank. I was doing mjengo after high school to help raise money to support my family and the day KCSE results were released I was there busy digging the 10ft underground tank and by God’s grace I was the 4th best student in Anestar and Students from Anestar Boys Bahati came celebrating, lifted me up and it became a great celebration. That was the last time for me to do mjengo as the Director of the school recommended that I immediately be given a teaching job in the same school, of which I refused and opted to teach at Anestar Primary School.
God said “I will restore the years that were stolen, give you beauty for those ashes, weeping may endure for a night, but joy is coming in the morning”
Nothing that’s happened to you is a surprise to God, God already has the restoration, vindication, new beginning; that setback was simply a setup for God to take you to a higher level. You’ve gotta shake off the self-pity, the defeat, and get ready for God to do something new, He’s going to pay you back for every injustice.
Exodus 3:7 (ESV) Then the LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings
God has seen every wrong that’s been done to you, every person that hurt you, every tear you shed, every injustice; God went on to say:
Exodus 3:8 (ESV).. and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
There comes a point where God says “enough is enough, I’ve seen it, now I’m going to do something about it, I’m not going to just give you what you deserve, but I’m going to make the enemy pay and bring you out better than you were before”
God is a God of justice, He always makes the enemy pay for bringing the trouble into your life; it may not happen overnight, God is keeping the records. He knows exactly what you’re owed. God sees every time you do the right thing but the wrong thing happens. Take the high road and forgive, you let it go. You worked hard but you didn’t get the credit, God is closely watching, you have an account with Him, He’ll make sure you not only get what you deserve, but His justice is to pay you back with more. Some of you, you’ve been in an unfair situation, it’s gone on a long time, you’ve lost your passion, your fire, thinking that’s the way it’s always going to be. God is saying to you, “I have come down to do something about it”; you need to get ready, it’s payback time, everything the enemy has stolen, God is going to restore; The joy, peace, health, dreams; God is going to pay you back for the childhood you didn’t have, for that person that falsely accused you, for the years you lost in an abusive relationship. He has seen everything you’ve been through. He has come down to do something about it. Don’t go around with a defeated mentality, that’s gonna stop God from working. You may have had more than your share of bad breaks, you could easily get discouraged and settle where you are; shake that off, your attitude should be, “I’m not staying here, I know it’s payback time, restoration time, vindication time, favor time”; Almighty God has come down on your behalf. I have too gone through very tough time in life and ending up in the streets, sometimes abusing drugs because of stress and being involved in criminal activities in Nakuru. That past has pushed me to establish the Makinika Afrika youth program which is reaching out to the lost, physically abused etc and through my tweeter account @AmbSteveMbugua you can see a lot of testimonies.
Psalm 27:10 (AMP) Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].
If you’ll just keep moving forward, being the best that you can be, God will take what’s meant for your harm and He will use it to your advantage; God will open doors that no man can shut; God will give you favor and cause people to want to be good to you; you may be in a situation where because of the poor choices of others it seems like you’re stuck, you’ll never get out of that rut, accomplish your dreams; God knows how to get you to where you’re supposed to be; all through the day, in your mind, in your thoughts, you should be saying “Father, I want to thank you that it’s payback time, I know you’re a God of justice, you’re restoring the years, the dreams, no person’s going to keep me from my destiny, I will become everything you created me to be”; have that attitude of faith. shake off the negative comments. What people say about you doesn’t determine who you are, shake off the disrespect, keep your head held high, and God will promote you in spite of what they said. One way God pays you back is to prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies; that means God will promote you in front of the people that were trying to hold you down; He’ll show you favor and honor in front of those that said you’re not good enough; let that go in one ear and out the other.
Hebrews 10:30 God is just a God and He will repay the exact compensation owed you. He will settle and solve the cases of His people
Some of you have cases that need to be settled, people have tried to push you down, make you feel inferior; you worked hard pursuing your dream, but the bottom fell out; now you’re starting over, you could easily have a chip on your shoulder; you’ve gotta know God has promised to settle your case, but you gotta get in agreement with God and start expecting payback time; if you want to see God pay you back, make your wrongs right, then when things come against you, you’ll feel like being bitter, complaining; dig your heels in, and say “I know my redeemer lives. God’s gonna turn this around, no weapon formed against me is gonna prosper, my best days are still out in my future”; you gotta have this attitude of faith, knowing that God is a God of justice and He will settle your case
God has seen what you’ve been through, every tear you’ve shed, He knows the disappointment, the heartache you feel, and this is not the end, it’s a new beginning; you’re not going to just come out of this barely surviving, God’s going to make the enemy pay and bring you out better off than you were before; God is still on the throne, He’s in complete control, He’s going to settle your case; get in agreement with God, we all have unfair things that come against us, we all go through bad breaks, but you have to remember God not only sees it, but He’s promised if you’ll just keep moving forward, if you won’t get bitter, He will settle your case; the way God settles the case is not just to turn it around, not to just make it right, God will bring you out better off than you were before.
Isaiah 61:7 (The Message) Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever.
You may feel like you got a double dose of trouble, you worked hard, but the bottom fell out, don’t get stuck there thinking that that’s your lot in life, that you got shortchanged, that you’ll always have a disadvantage, the truth is, that unfair situation has qualified you for double; it doesn’t have to stop you, if you’ll have the right attitude, God will use it to thrust you forward. God is a God of justice, He wants to pay you back, but you’ve got to do your part; shake off the self-pity, what they said about you, what didn’t work out, the way you were raised, and get ready for a double dose of God’s favor, blessing, health, peace, creativity, get ready for God to do exceeding abundantly above and beyond.
When you go through unfair situations, it’s never easy, we never like it, but keep it in the right perspective, that person that’s talking about you, trying to make you look bad, in a sense they did you a favor, they just qualified you for double; that person that walked out on you, left you when you needed them the most, don’t sit around thinking that there’s something wrong with you, you’re inadequate, less than, blow them a kiss goodbye and get ready for double, it’s payback time; God wants to do something new in your life.
When you let God settle your case, it will be better than you could have ever done it yourself; don’t be sour because of something that you lost, or something that was taken from you, instead of being bitter and trying to get even, stay on the high road, God sees the injustice, He knows what they took, and if you’ll let God settle your case, He’ll not only give you what you deserve, but God will pay you back with even more. God has the final say, God knows how to pay you back, He’s not limited by the laws of nature, or by what people say; when you go to work each week, remember, you’re not working unto people, you’re working unto God; if somebody is being dishonest or playing politics, don’t get upset, don’t try to pay them back, God is keeping the records, He will make sure you not only get what you deserve, God will pay you back with even more; this is a new day, it is payback time, get ready for a double dose of God’s goodness, favor.
God is going to make the enemy pay for bringing the trouble into your life; instead of complaining about it, get up in the morning and say “I know my redeemer lives”; remember, every difficulty, every unfair situation, that has qualified you for double; some of you even this week are going to see cases settled, restoration, vindication, promotion, breakthroughs, a promise coming to pass; the God of justice is going to show Himself strong in your life; you’re not going to just come out, you’re going to come out better off than you were before in JESUS MIGHTY NAME!! Rejoice and thank God For pay back time.
