ďI will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten...Ē
(Joel 2:25, NIV)
TODAYíS WORD from Joel and Victoria
Friend, God knows how to make up for years youíve lost in your life. No, you canít relive your childhood, but God can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you donít even miss what didnít happen in the past. You may feel like you wasted years in a relationship that didnít work out. But God can bring somebody into your life so great, so fun, so friendly, so attractive that you donít even remember the years that youíve lost. You may have spent years on a job that turned out to be a dead end. You were working your way to the top; things didnít turn out like you had hoped, and now it looks like thereís a big waste of time. You may not see how you could ever get to where you want to be, but donít believe those lies. God knows how to make up for lost time. God can accelerate things. God can bring opportunities back across your path that you missed that will thrust you years ahead. It may not have happened the first time, but God will always give you another chance. Heíll make up for the lost time and bring you out better and stronger than ever before!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, You are my Redeemer. Thank You for Your promise to restore to me the years that have been lost or wasted. I receive Your promise by faith. I put my trust and hope in You and believe that my best days are out ahead of me in Jesusí name. Amen.
ó Joel & Victoria Osteen
