Restoration Of What Was Lost | Institute of Love
God, your God, will restore everything you lost; He will have compassion on you! (See Deuteronomy 30:3) As a matter fact, “the Lord says, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts.” Joel 2:25 NLT God knows how to restore His people! When Job, who lost his children and all his possessions and was struck with sickness, prayed for his friends who falsely accused him, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before! Then all his brothers, sisters, and former friends came and feasted with him in his home. And they consoled him and comforted him because of all the trials the Lord had brought against him. And each of them brought him a gift of money and a gold ring. So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. He also gave Job seven more sons and three more daughters and in all the land no women were as lovely as the daughters of Job. (See Job 42:10-15) “So after you have suffered a little while, God will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation. All power to Him forever! Amen.” 1. Peter 5:10-11 NLT Indeed, GOD KNOWS HOW TO RESTORE HIS BELOVED CHILDREN!!!
