How often we wish we can turn back our time where we can start all over. Where we have lost and been robbed of our most precious; whether it is a relationship, youth, wealth, health, anything that is dear and close to us. We may have even foolishly thrown it all away, leaving only regret, shame and guilt. We know we are forgiven and our past forgotten by the cleansing blood of Jesus. But wouldn’t it be great if we can get back those years wasted and live them for the glory of the Lord?
Now you can!
And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten–the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you.
And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.
And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame. Joel 2:25-27 (Amplified Bible)
Although the past is irrevocable, irreversible and unchangeable, but God is saying we are a new creation, and He can do just that! There is a new beginning for us, filled with new chances, new opportunities and new expectations. God will not only wipe away our rotten past. But He will RESTORE and REPLACE the good of what we have lost, destroyed, and robbed by the devil and its demonic army.
We will have plentiful and be completely satisified. He wants you to know that truth and the truth that HE is in the midst of His people! He is not an absentee Father, we are not orphans. He will not allow His people to be shamed anymore. This is a profound truth that no one else can claim.
I the Lord am your God and there is none else.
The Day of the LORD is here!
