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.
Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
Joel 2:25,26

Many of us have lost precious things over the years. Lost time, lost relationships, lost houses, lost loved ones, we could all make a list. Some of these things have been lost because of bad choices we have made, some because of sinful lifestyles, and others simply because we live in an imperfect world with trouble everywhere. The good news is that there is recovery and restoration available to us in Christ. Dick Mills has some awesome thoughts about this, check it out.

1. Restored physical soundness (Jer. 30:17.): We are told by doctors that some ailments leave people with no hope of recovery. This word from the Lord says that lost health can be regained.
2. Restored happiness (Ps. 51:12.): Upon confession of wrongdoing and receipt of God’s forgiveness, joy returns to the soul. If you have lost your joy, search your heart to see if there is something you need to confess and repent of.
3. Restored paths (Is. 28:12.): During times of spiritual declension, the path of service is not always easily discerned. When revival comes, the plan leading home to the Father’s house is always clear.
4. Restored life (Ruth 4:15.): Here is a promise of rejuvenation despite the aging process. The Lord promises us that our youth shall be renewed like the eagle’s. (Ps. 103:5.)

If you have been discouraged over past losses and failures, this is good news. There is recovery and restoration available for you in the Lord. Your time of recovery can begin today. How can that happen? As soon as you call, He will answer. He is here now, drawing you to a new beginning. Actually, He is drawing you to Himself.

  1. It gives us all hope every day is new in the lord We all can relate to things that have happened in our lives. Sometimes things happen im thankful we have a friend that stays closer to us than a brother, we all know we wont still be here if it wasnt for the lords love for us i can see how he keeped me when i sure didnt deserve nothing from him im amazed at his love for us and his patience all the times i failed him he didnt give up he was right there restoreing and dealing in me, restoreing the relationship to what it was supost to be with him bringing me to my knees and repentence im so glad he keept me from being lost out there there is no where to go for me but the lord i had to learn that and dont ever want to have to relearn that again we serve and live for him because of who he is, not for fire insurence or to get something or have a great time but for who he is, the lord will supply all our needs anyway he wants us very close to him

  2. And even if its not the Father’s will to restore us in every way in our earthly, natural existence through our Savior Jesus Christ we have Trust and Faith that all this and more will we find in the place he is preparing for us in heaven with the Holy Trinity. Praise and Thanks , Halleulujah!!!!! In His Light and Love, dan frisard

  3. For His good pleasure

    “And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.” //ephesians 1:9-10// “fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” //luke 12:32//

    I am still confident of this I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27 vs 13
