God Himself will restore you (1Peter 5:10).
God, who created all things, will personally restore me? He cares that much about me?
Yes, and more than we could possibly know.
We are in His thoughts. He knows the number of hairs on our head.
When our lives are turned upside down…..when we don’t know where to turn as life gets messy…..when a pressing issue rears it’s ugly head, God will reach down, scoop us up into His arms, and restore us. Make us whole. Return us to a state of regeneration. Health.
God helps correct our mis-steps and will restore us if we are relying on Him. If we act before we are certain we have heard from Him, when we are faithful still, He will give us the help we need to turn back.
I thought if we daily submitted ourselves, we would not make any wrong turns.
I know, but we are human. Not perfect, remember?
The key is to keep submitting yourself, your time, your life to God. Because when you mess up, and you will again and again, God will be faithful to always guide you back to His ways.
How will He do that? Impossible to know.
It’s just a promise we can cling to.
Will we look the same when he’s done?
When God restores, He makes all things new. In other words, even better.
So, not only does God promise to Himself restore us, but He will make all things new.
When you are in the pit of despair, cling to that promise. It will be alright. God has your back. Not only that, but He will bring you back to life.
Sounds great, so how does a person grab onto this promise?
Bow before the Almighty God and ask Him to redeem you and lead you into life everlasting.
When you surrender your will to Him, placing your gut level trust into His hands, He will be faithful to restore you.
