My brother, my sister, are you looking for strength today? Today’s verse says: “”I will strengthen Judah and save the tribes of Joseph. I will restore them because I have compassion on them. They will be as though I had not rejected them, for I am the LORD their God and I will answer them.” You see, God promises to strenghten His people. When we stay cclosely connecte to God, His Spirit will enable us to do His will, despite the obstacles. When we stray away from God, we wil cut off our power source while our restoration stems from the power in us that God Himself has placed within us.
My friend, it is because we do not know the Word of God well that we suffer much. The Bible clearly states that “Whoever digs a pit may fall into it; whoever breaks through a wall may be bitten by a snake” (Ecclesiastes 10:8). Many believers have already broken the protective wall God has placed around their lives and properties. Now, they themselves have allowed the enemy to destroy them or their possessions. But there is a good news for us in the Word of God that says that whatever is killed, stolen or destroyed by the enemy can be restored by God: ” have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Besides, God has promised to restore unto us our lost and wasted years “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm—my great army that I sent among you” (Joel 2:25). Ye, my friend, everything lost to the devil will be restored by God if only you trust Him with all your heart, your mind and your strength just like Job who lost all but in the end everything was restored to him even in multiple-fold. Today, rest in Jesus instead of looking for solutions here and there, trust in Jesus, lean on Jesus, the only way to God who has the power to restore you and who has given you the power through the Holy Spirit who can allow this power to be released into your life. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
