Glorious Restoration

Bro. D.G.S Dhinakaran
19 Dec
In our daily life, the Word of God is the only balm for healing and restoration.  Yes, God has promised, “I will restore you to health and heal your wounds” (Jeremiah 30:17).  Today, if you are at any kind of need, look upon Him, the Restorer! He is very compassionate and merciful.
 
The story of Job in the Bible is a heart-rending story. He was a man who walked through the valley of weeping with much sorrow. He faced a tragic loss in a day.  Even he was afflicted with wounds.  The Bible says that, even in those hard times, he was righteous (Job 1:1).  But at the end, Job was restored double fold for all his losses.  For the question that we ask many times, ‘Why do the righteous suffer?’ the story of Job is the answer.  In 1989 when I was in Iraq, I visited Baghdad and they took me to a small village where the body of Job lies buried.  There is a beautiful mosque over that, near that are two wells, and I found people drawing water out of it and carrying them to their home with great piety and reverence. And one lady whom I met there told me, “Sir, this is the place where the great saint Job lived. They call him as ‘Prophet Ayyub’, and God healed him of his terrible and incurable skin disease.  So, we take this water and in belief put it upon the sick that they would be healed. 
Yes, the story of Job is true; it is not a fable.  If the waters from that well near his grave can heal a person, how much more would the blood of Jesus do for you!  Beloved, surely He will bless you today.  He will wipe away your tears and grant your requests and the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).  Take this promise to your heart – “The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house” (Haggai 2:9).  Do not brood over your losses.  A better restoration awaits you.  Establish your heart in the Word of God to receive an abundant blessing. 
Prayer:
Dear Lord,

Unbearable is my loss.  I do not know a way to get up from this rubble.  There is none to help me.  There is nobody to lend me a comforting embrace. Lord, You are my helper.  Now, Your promises are my only ‘capital’ to invest.  Let the later glory in my life exceed the former one.  For the world to look at what You can do with nothing, use the broken pieces in my life.  I receive Your grace, favour and mercy into my life.  In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
