I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten... (Joel 2:25, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Friend, God knows how to make up for years youve lost in your life. No, you cant relive your childhood, but God can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you dont even miss what didnt happen in the past. You may feel like you wasted years in a relationship that didnt work out. But God can bring somebody into your life so great, so fun, so friendly, so attractive that you dont even remember the years that youve lost. You may have spent years on a job that turned out to be a dead end. You were working your way to the top; things didnt turn out like you had hoped, and now it looks like theres a big waste of time. You may not see how you could ever get to where you want to be, but dont believe those lies. God knows how to make up for lost time. God can accelerate things. God can bring opportunities back across your path that you missed that will thrust you years ahead. It may not have happened the first time, but God will always give you another chance. Hell make up for the lost time and bring you out better and stronger than ever before!
A Prayer for Today
Father, You are my Redeemer. Thank You for Your promise to restore to me the years that have been lost or wasted. I receive Your promise by faith. I put my trust and hope in You and believe that my best days are out ahead of me in Jesus name. Amen.
