Do you long for restoration of all that the enemy has taken from you?
Often I look back and see how I made it so easy for the enemy to come in and create chaos and destruction. And other times the answer is not clear and I know that I will never fully have an answer to my "why?" question.
This broken sinful world can dish up pain on a level that only a few of us can understand fully--but we all should hold space to hear and empathize. (I don't profess to understand everyone's pain or the depth of their experiences but we can all imagine, give compassion, and create space to hear it--and that is the calling of the Christ-follower.)
No matter if the answer is clear on why and how the circumstances came about God wants to work in the situation. He wants to bless us, grow us, and bring about an abundance of glory and Kingdom impact for His namesake.
He wants us to have peace and faith in Him to craft the outcomes as He so chooses. You can watch the Bible study video on How To Have Peace In All Circumstances.
Let's choose today to ask God for restoration of all that has been stolen from us by the enemy and by our own brokenness/sin/disobedience.
Let's choose today to learn God's Kingdom principals for blessings--like tithing, sowing seeds of compassion, forgiveness, attitudes of gratitude, humbleness, and a focused mind to learn and work with vigor and a mind to serve Christ. Because Jesus will heal, redeem, restore, and transform all those who willingly submit to Him.

Let's pray: Dear God Almighty, we humbly come to the throne room of grace with gratitude for Your love and mercy.
We thank You and praise You Jesus that You are our Good Shepherd that leads us into healing. Please Jesus heal the broken parts of our mind and the past hurts that this world has dished out.
Please Lord God protect us from the evil one and cause the enemy to flee in seven different directions away from us and cause what the enemy and locust has eaten and destroyed to be returned to us sevenfold so that we can have restoration and blessings upon blessings.
We praise You Lord that You long to bless us and grow us. Please lead us to the scripture we need to learn and follow. Please show us how to align our thoughts and actions with Your will and path that You have for us.
We thank You Lord Jesus for always hearing our prayers and loving us beyond all measure. We sing praises to Your name, now and forever, Amen!
