1 Peter 5:10 – But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Have you experienced destruction in your past? Many a times, what we’ve worked for and built meticulously comes crashing down to debris.

So, what does restore mean? In computing, it’s when you delete any document or video or just about any file, you can restore it from the recycle bin. Restore is to get back that which was deleted. God wants to completely restore you. He wants to make you strong, firm and steadfast—He wants to make you better than before!

Sometimes, when you are in the midst of difficulty, you can’t quite see the restoration God has prepared. You can’t quite see how He can turn it around for your good. But that’s when you have to take a step of faith and trust that He is the God of restoration, and He is working behind the scenes on your behalf!

If you’re in a difficult place right now, on this Good Friday, the Lord wants to remind you that He is not only your Provider or Promoter but He is your Restorer. He died on the cross of Calvary to restore our relationship back to the Father; thus, saving us from damnation.

Father God, thank You that Jesus restored my life. Thank you for being a Restorer and a Rewarder of the people who seek You. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life, ready to bring Your restoration. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
