Restoring the Years the Locusts Have Eaten
"And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten." Joel 2:25
Hosea had a wife whose name was Gomer. She not only committed immorality, but she finally ended up as a prostitute on the street.
In the strength of the Lord, Hosea went to her, reclaimed her, forgave her, remarried her and restored her as his bride. What a picture of the restoration of our Lord with us!
God has promised to restore us from all the pains of our past, the heartaches from broken relationships, the struggles from defeat, and the frustrations of our lives. All the times that we've felt broken beyond repair, God has promised to restore.
God is in the business of restoring His children into beautiful works of His holiness.
Is there someone in your life who has wandered from the faith and felt the abandonment of friends and family? If so, go to that person today and encourage them in the love of Jesus.
