Restoration

1 Peter 5 10

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 5:10

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

At the beginning of this year many of us were in a good place and we were looking forward to seeing what the new year had in store for us. Little did we know that this would be one of the hardest times since the Great Depression. Many have lost their jobs, their homes and people they love. Some are struggling emotionally, physically and financially just to make it to tomorrow. We have had to trust in the Lord like never before. But praise God, we serve the God of restoration! By His grace, we have been called to be His children and we have hope for a future because our heavenly Father always has a plan to heal and restore His people.

Change Begins Within Ourselves

2 Chronicles 7 14

Verse of the Day:  2 Chronicles 7:14

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.

Many have turned their backs on the Lord and not having a relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today. They no longer fear the Lord and therefore lack wisdom. How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God, turn from our selfish and wicked ways and walk in His commandments. If we do these things God will hear us and have mercy on us. He will forgive us and restore us. But to change the world, each one of us must first change ourselves.
