“And the God of all grace…will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast” (I Peter 5:10, NIV).
Have you experienced destruction in your past? God wants to completely restore you. He wants to make you strong, firm and steadfast—He wants to make you better than before!
Sometimes, when you are in the midst of difficulty, you can’t quite see the restoration God has prepared. You can’t quite see how He can turn it around for your good. But that’s when you have to take a step of faith and trust that He is the God of restoration, and He is working behind the scenes on your behalf!
That picture is so powerful I had to repost. Read Mark 3:5 & you’ll understand.
