TOPIC: PURSUIT: THE KEY TO RESTORATION
SCRIPTURE: And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. – Joel 2:25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Desperate pursuit brings restoration.
The above scripture attests to the fact that we serve a God of restoration. God promised to restore the years the cankerworms had eaten out of our lives. If lost years can be restored, then there is nothing that cannot be recovered when God is involved regardless of the number of years it has been lost.
What, then, is the key to restoration?
Desperate pursuit is maintaining an unquenchable passion towards achieving or recovering a thing. It is a situation where a person loses a thing but refuses to let it go. Desperate pursuit brings restoration.
An example of desperate pursuit in the scripture was how David pursued a lion and rescued a lamb from its mouth when he was keeping his father’s flock. When the lion tried to fight back, David caught it by the beard, smote it and slew it (1 Samuel 17:34-36). For a fearful person, this feat would have been impossible.
Beloved, it is desperate pursuit that brings restoration. May you receive the spirit, force and frightfulness of David in Jesus’ Name!
Remember this: Desperate pursuit brings restoration.
1. Ask God for the restoration of anything that is lost in your life.
2. Desperately pursue the restoration of any lost item in your life like David did.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the restoration of every lost virtue, grace or resource in my life. Restore to me, O LORD, the years that the cankerworms have eaten out of my life, in Jesus’ Name.
