Just last week, I bought my mother a lovely christmas gift (which took me forever to find), only to discover that when I got home, I just could not find it for the life of me! I searched high and low but to no avail. Without much hope, I muttered a frustrated prayer asking God for help. And surprise surprise, after a couple of days, the present I was looking for suddenly appeared on the floor of my lounge!
We may discover that we have lost things, relationships, hopes and dreams along our journey in life. But God is more than able to heal, to bring life, and to cause us to find what has been lost or stolen, and to restore double for our trouble! Instead of giving up, or looking high and low, let's stand firm, look to Him and believe He can and He will do it!
Psalm 71:20 -21
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.
Isaiah 61:7 - 8
Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them."
