“When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.”
In a season of brokenness and despair, the Lord came to me and promised, “I will restore you completely.” Even though the struggle with depression, hopelessness, fear, and shame did not end immediately, I continued to stand on this promise, flood my heart with God’s word, and cry out to Jesus for deliverance.
Years later, while enjoying the freedom, joy, peace, and confidence in God’s love that had become my “new normal,” I was reminded of God’s promise. I was assured: God had restored me completely. My faith, calling, joy, intimacy with God, confidence, passion, and more were restored. The many promises God had given me were (and still are) coming to pass in my life.
God is faithful. He will do what he promised for you. He will restore you completely. He is the God who hears the cry of your heart and sees your distress (Exodus 3:7-10). He is the God who is with you even in opposition (Genesis 39:21). He is the God who conquered sin and death (Acts 2:24).
Declare today that God delivers you because He delights in you
Sing out about the great things God is doing for you. Be glad and laugh
