Christ Will Restore Everything the Enemy Stole

Print

When life throws us a curve ball, we don’t have to accept it. Whatever issue is going on in our lives right now, we must remember that it’s not over. Whatever the enemy stole—whether it’s our health, our financial security, our peace of mind, or anything else that’s dear to us—God promises to restore it. Regardless of what Satan says, Jesus will have the last word because restoration is God’s will for us.

If we are to experience this supernatural restoration, however, we must have faith that it will happen. King David, who suffered much adversity, confessed that he would have fainted and given up if he had not believed he would see God’s goodness. Refusing to fear, and instead rejoicing and being glad when nothing is going right, opens the door to allow God to do great things and restore to us all the lost years.

According to the spiritual laws God has established, when he is caught, the thief is required to restore sevenfold what he stole from us. The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but God brings full restoration, to the point where our lives are overflowing. He makes everything better than before.

God brings back all the hope and joy that was missing from our lives before we established a relationship with Him. When we recall how we felt when we got born again, we realize He has accepted us as His beloved children. He restores unto us the joy of salvation.

When everything caves in on us, rejoicing in the Lord makes Him our strength and causes us to walk upon high places. Joy, gladness, and restoration are linked. When we get our joy back, other things will also be restored because the joy of the Lord is our strength. God is indeed the God of the turnaround.

Prayer:

Father God, it’s not Your will that the enemy steal anything from your children that You want us to have. Jesus came and restored everything that was stolen from us in the beginning. Now, we no longer have to settle for less than the best. We are so grateful for what You did. In Jesus’ name, amen.
