Today’s exhortation – God will restore
The message I believe God wants us to hear today is that He will restore to us everything we have lost. Many of us have lost so much along the way, family, friends, status, wealth, investments, dignity, etc but if we would make God our focus, keep our eyes on Him and trust Him, He will restore. He’s a God of restoration and we see that throughout the bible. He restored to both Joseph and his father Jacob what they had lost. Joseph was seventeen years old when he was taken away from his father and his father lived seventeen years in Egypt with Joseph before he died. That’s the beauty of our God. So particular and so loving.
The restoration may take longer than we expect it to, but it will happen. However while we wait, “let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Galatians 6:9). This is the word of The Lord to us today, “I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust,.. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the LORD your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame.” (Joel 2:25-26). Thank You Father God in Jesus name. Amen
