Recently I waited all day for the little box to arrive at my door, it was an important purchase and the information from UPS said I would have to sign for it! When the package arrived I brought it in and carefully opened it, there, all shiny and black, was my brand new IPhone 6 Plus! I took it and plugged it into my computer to download all my information on it so I could begin to use it, then plugged in my old phone to restore it to it’s factory settings, thereby erasing everything that was on it and then give it to my grandson so it would be like a brand new phone to him.

The thing that made it brand new was that one action of “restoring” it to its original settings. Wow, what a lesson there is in that! I connected it and watched as everything of mine began to disappear making room for all of his numbers and apps such as those that sound like Drums, and others for games just right for him. I looked up the word “restore” first in the dictionary and this is what I found:

1.To bring back into existence or use; reestablish: restore law and order. 2.To bring back to an original condition: restore a building. See Synonyms at revive. 3.To put (someone) back in a former position: restore the emperor to the throne. 4.To make restitution of; give back: restore the stolen funds.

I read those four things and gave them a spiritual connotation! 1. He can bring me back into existence or use and reestablish me! 2. He can put me back into my original condition, sounds like a complete healing to me! 3. He can put me back in the place I was before I fell from Grace, or made a mistake, in other words He forgives. and number 4. He will give us back everything that was stolen from us by our actions! Then I new I had to back that up with the Bible, so I looked and found restore mentioned 66 times. Psalm 23:3 He restores my soul and leads me in paths of righteousness for His names sake. He can take a soul that has been used beyond the breaking point and restore it to it’s original factory, or heaven-made, settings. Psalm 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of my salvation; and uphold my with Your free spirit. That is our original condition, isn’t it? Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord. Joel 2:23 And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten…

Wow the more I read the happier I got! Daniel 4 we read how King Nebuchadnezzar became like an animal roaming in the fields and eating grass like an ox because of his great pride and not recognizing God! But one day he looked heavenward and acknowledged his Creator, God, he was fully restored to himself and back to his Throne as the King! When Job lost everything he had in this world except his life and his wife he blamed himself and God and the “friends” that came to talk with him didn’t make things any better, however in the end he humbled himself before God and prayed for his enemies! When he did this God restored everything to him and seven times greater than he had ever had!

What is there in your life that seems so ripped apart and full of excess baggage that you feel you are too far gone for help? If God can take a King that had become like an animal for seven years and restore him fully to his kingdom in his right mind, there is nothing you can bring to him that would be too hard for Him to do!

Be restored to your original, sinless condition today by connecting yourself to God!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
