“God’s Work of Restoration”

“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,' declares the LORD,' because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no-one cares” (Jeremiah 30:17 NIV).

I always thought our dinner table was a little too massive and heavy. Also through the excessive usage in the recent years it had some deep scratches all over the surface. Now that something was spilled on the table that stained it forever, it definitely looks devastated.

Fortunately the person that was responsible for this spill took accountability and paid for the restoration cost. The restorer of the table, a 94 year old friend of ours and fine craftsman, removed the stain completely and restored the surface beautifully. Now even all the scratches are gone and our table has received a lovely glow and rich wood finish that was not there before.

Do you need the restoring touch of the Hand of God in an area of your life? Perhaps for a broken relationship or for a time in your life that was lost? You know because when God restores something unto you, He just doesn’t bring what was lost, devastated, wounded or broken back to its original condition. No, He truly goes beyond that. He takes it into His hands and then He makes it better. That’s the kind of work of restoration that only God can do and it is available to you and to all mankind.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
