Restoring the Years
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm—my great army that I sent among you.” Joel 2:25 (NIV)
It is easy to feel like past years have been wasted, but today is the day of salvation and restoration. Your youth may have been wasted, but take heart in your life now as you follow Jesus. The Lord you now serve has given you this promise to claim. It is a promise that offers you a greater quality of life, a more abundant life, a life finally worth living, and it begins today.
The good news about walking with the Lord into our aging years, is that His presence and involvement in our life makes our today’s so much better than we could have ever hoped. Today is the day of fulfillment because of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let’s pray today that we may look forward in our Christian faith and not back at wasted years.
