If anyone can restore, God can!

July 22, 2019

“Oh, that I were as in the months of old, as in the days when God watched over me” Job 29:2, ESV.

“And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning…” Job 42:12 ESV.

Job reminisced about the past. He went there. He went back to how life was before his challenges and losses came. He went back, for a moment, to how everything was flourishing, how he had it all, and there was no lack. He wanted those times back. But he trusted the Lord and Job’s latter was better, far better, far sweeter, even double, than what He had.

Your heavenly Father is a Restorer.

Leave the past where it is. Yes, it felt perfect. Yes, you had it all. Yes, it was marvelous and you couldn’t any wrong. But you can’t live there. You have to let it go. You can’t keep your heart and mind always reminiscing about what you had, when there are great days ahead, even in front of you.

Your heavenly Father is a Restorer.

God is a good God and He restores in mighty ways for those that put their trust in Him. God can do what seems impossible and it doesn’t have to take Him long–trust His timing. Let your place be to do what He says, keep following Jesus forward, excited to know that your latter be greater. He’s going to make it even sweeter, even better than what you had.

Prayer: Father, thank You for being my Restorer. I have had some challenges and setbacks in my life, but You will restore me. You will make it even far better than what I had. Today, I let go of always reminiscing about the past and move forward, trusting in You! You are a good God and great in my eyes. I’ll keep doing what You say and keep following Jesus. My latter will be greater! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Study: Job 42:10-17
