The God Of Restoration

TEXT: “In that day I will restore David’s fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be, so that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations that bear my name, declares the Lord, who will do these things.” Amos 9:11-12

Have you ever fixed a broken toy for a child? Or built up a scattered puzzle from scratch? You restored it because you knew the original condition or had the finished picture as a reference. This reading speaks of God as a restorer. In other words, things are not the way they should be with those that should be called the kingdom of God and God will restore according to His master plan.

But how does this concern us? Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom, (Luke 17:20-21), which Apostle James echoes in Acts 15:13-18. Therefore, when we realize we are kings required to take dominion, we establish the kingdom of God on earth, as it should be. We, who are kings and priests, rise up to take our place; then the spiritual reign of Christ permeates throughout our nation as we influence people around us for good.

“’The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from the hills.” Amos 9:13.

This is a great blessing.

LEARN and APPLY: Stand in pursuit of God’s kingdom agenda, which is to establish the culture of heaven in our lives and on the earth. Become worthy stewards of the mandate and we who seek to win others shall be overtaken by the growth of those we seek to lead.

Pray: Father, I surrender to Your divine agenda. I pray that You will truly restore all that appears to be broken, and wasted, in my life so that I become a full expression of the glory of Your kingdom in my life. Amen.
