Like a child who is tenderly called by his mother in his hour of distress, the response is simply follow. As a child, sometimes this ‘following’ is like a run and sometimes it’s a crawl. Though my response can be wavering. The call is steady, continually screaming out grace. No matter where I am, no matter what has happened and no matter what the future holds.
God’s call comes! “Come my child, restoration is found here. Rest now, be built, be healed, be restored! Today!” A new creation is waiting to breakout in me, for the whole world.
For the whole world? Yes, that is where the call is directed. Unto all the world (Matt 24:14) “...for the healing of the nations” (Rev 22:2).
Like a child come before my Lord again. Restored! Now I stand like a warrior who dreams for the whole world, knowing no matter what: I know where I stand! What my God has done! And where my future is going!
Let Your heart be ours.
