” that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.” Amos 9:11-12
Are you hopeless or is your life in a miserable state? What have you encountered in your journey of life that makes you wonder if God really loves you ? God is giving you hope through His Word in Amos 9:11-12. Just take His Word and believe what He said for He’s not a man that He shall lie.
Is your career,business, marriage,spiritual life or health in shambles? Let’s say for an example,you were once intelligent,your reasoning capacity was very sharp,your sense of judgement was one of the best in the world! But suddenly tragedy strikes one day and a severe headache hits you hard. It leaves you with loss of memory ,confusion ,poor reasoning capacity and you can’t even read what’s written on the paper because you can’t see clearly,your eyes have been affected as well. God is promising you in His Word that he will raise up everything that’s in ruins and will build it as in the days of the old. What does this mean to you ? This means God is able to restore your mental state which is in a mess to the way it was before!
There’s no one Jesus cannot turn around ,no matter where you have gone. There’s no one created that cannot be redeemed,no one lost that cannot be found and no one broken that cannot be restored! Sometimes God breaks us in order to promote us! God didn’t promise to keep us away from troubles ,but He promised to see us through them. In other words challenges are the soil on which faith flourishes. They encourage us to want to know God the more ,pray the more ,fast the more ,and read His Word the more. We should embrace challenges as they will strengthen our relationship with God .
He will abandon you for a brief moment but with deep compassion He will bring you back ! Broken things become useful in God’s hands. Cheer up ;He will restore you!
