Covenant Day of Restoration
I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you, . . .– Joel 2:25 ► (ESV)]
A Tale of Guilt, Sorrows, Regrets and Pains:
If heaven was to conduct a survey on the earth today – even among believers, one key outcome of that survey will be that almost every single one of us has one (or maybe a few) chapters in our lives that we wish we could rewrite?
Chapters riddled with regrets, pains, injuries; or maybe sorrows from past sins. If this assertion defines any part of you or someone you know, next Sunday has been specially packaged by God for you. It is our Covenant Day of Restoration.
Joel 2 arrays a lot of promises, with a central theme being that God does not only forgive the repentant sinner: He also completely heals and restores all that was lost to a repentant sinner. This is to say that even if most of us may have suffered life-long pains as a result of the sinful choices of the past, the Lord is able to restore the years that had been eaten up by sin; or the guilt of sin.
In Joel 2:25, God emphatically promises to “restore to us the years…”
How we may ask? He will not be reversing our life’s clock, nor will He turn back the calendar. On the contrary, God is able to pack so much living, so much vitality, so much joy, so much peace, fulfillment and blessing into our remaining years, so much so that our lives become crowded with unending joys, pleasures and victories.
In Matthew 27:38, Luke 23:32-43 and Mark 15:27, the bible mentions one of the two thieves on the cross with Jesus at Calvary. Unlike sinless Jesus, this man had squandered all his life on murder, thievery, and selfishness but in the waning moments of his life, God arrested this dying but penitent man and brought him to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. His conversion and promise of eternal life in Paradise with Jesus in those fleeting moments of his life left for us an everlasting testimony of God’s grace to save, to pardon, to instruct, to restore; and even to resurrect.
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning…, . . .– Psalm 30:27 ► KJV)]

Regardless of where you are as you read this page, there is good news for you. We are in a season of divine restoration so the chapters of your life that is filled with regrets and guilt notwithstanding, we will not be complacent and just accept the status quo because God is able (and ready) to restore back to us all that was lost and stolen by the enemy.
