Lost and Restored

God, your God, will restore everything you lost. (Deuteronomy 30:3 MSG)

God is a restorer. From restoring people who have wondered far away from Him to restoring our peace, hope and joy and right down to trivial matters, nothing is a lost cause for Him. Restoration is what He specializes in. He is a giver of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17) and it grieves Him when the enemy tries to steal what He has so graciously given us. Most, if not all, of us would agree that a lot has been lost, especially over the past few years. This year has been a year of loss in many ways, but also the year I’ve seen God come through in mighty ways and restore what’s been lost. I’ve seen God restore even the little things in my life that at times, I’m left in awe of how good and gracious He is! But the key to having everything restored to us is to turn to God. In today’s passage, the nation of Israel was reminded that restoration would only come after the people returned to the Lord (see Deuteronomy 30:1-10). And in that Scripture, God promises to restore everything to His people! God not only gives us back what we’ve lost, but gives us something even better in its place. What you think is lost, God can restore. Ask Him to do so today.
