Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 16th August – Restoration In Progress

(The Lord Can Restore Your Lost Time and Resources)

TO THE BIBLE: Joel 2:25 AMPC
“And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten.…”

LET’S TALK
If you ever find yourself in a quagmire or in some unpleasant situation, don’t fret or think you’re helpless. Don’t ever say, “This is the worst time of my life!” Christ lives in you, and that is what matters. He’s the restorer of wasted or lost time, effort, resources, energy, etc. He’ll make up for it.

No human being or government may ever be able to give back to you what you’ve lost in life, but God can! He’s the God that “quickens the dead,” that is, He gives life to the dead. He can bring back everything and more!

Mark 4:37-41 tells the story of how the disciples set sail to cross to the other side of the lake as the Master had instructed, but shortly afterwards a terrible storm ensued and huge waves buffeted their boat until it was about to sink. They were really in a fix. But Jesus was at the back of the boat, sleeping.

Startled at the ravaging storms, the disciples woke Him up and said, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?” Jesus woke up and gave the Word, “Peace, be still,” and there was a great calm.

It made no difference how strong the tempest was; what mattered was that the Master was in their boat. Same way, Christ is in you today, and by His Spirit, He’ll cause you to be triumphant and laugh your way through life.

Don’t sweat it; God can restore peace and order back to your life. Stick to the Word; even when you need to accomplish certain things and time isn’t in your favour, don’t push the panic button! Just keep your composure; the God who lives in you is the owner of time.

He can restore lost years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds, and even microseconds. He can move you forward and farther ahead of your peers and contemporaries in an instant. Hallelujah!

Speak:
By the power of the Holy Spirit, I’m making progress, far ahead of my competitors, detractors and adversaries. I’m guided by the Holy Spirit, who also has made my life beautiful and made me the testimony of God’s righteousness and grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
