the God who restores

God will restore me. That short sentence packs a serious punch. I keep finding myself repeating it with the emphasis on each word. And the significance of the statement changes for me each time. God will restore me.

God will restore me.

God will restore me.

God will restore me.

The truth of all four of those statements is wrapped up in this one verse:

"And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

I am desperate for God's restoration in my life. And I need to trust that He's already in the process of restoring me, even when it doesn't look or feel like it. He is the God who restores.

He says He will restore---

God will restore me. And then I will be strong, firm, and steadfast.

And that gives me hope.
