I want to talk to you about how God has planned to restore everything the devil has stolen from you. The Bible tells us that the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. He, the devil from the beginning, is a thief. He has stolen most people happiness, joy, love, health, wealth, Job, friendship, relationship, etc. In the book of Job, we all know how he tormented Job. If you want to know what this guy is capable of doing, take time to study the book of Job. But in the end, God gave Job more than what Satan stole, killed, and destroyed. He is here to incapacitate you.
Today, you may be going through some difficulties. It may look like things are not going on well; you failed your exam, profit isn’t coming as expected, sicknesses, disappointments, no money in the account, etc. It could also be that people don’t appreciate your efforts, etc. Don’t worry because it was for this purpose Jesus came, to destroy the works of the devil. The devil has no power now. He only has power over those living in the world of ignorance, that is to say the world of darkness.
The truth is “He who did not spare his own son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32. God is ever ready to bless us. He is ready today to restore to us all the blessings the devil stole from us. In Joel He said “I am sending you grain, new wine and oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations”.
God will repay you for the years you have suffered. He said in His Word; “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten –the great locust and the young locust…You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.” Joel 2:25-26. It is an assurance from the Most High God. I believe in that because of what He said in Ezekiel 12:25 “For I am the LORD; I will speak the word that I will speak, and it will be performed. It will no longer be delayed”
Be encouraged this day that every truth you find in God’s Word commits Him to perform. Take heart and believe that Faithful is He who has promised. He will do whatever He has promised. He will restore to you the years that the locusts have eaten in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
