What the locusts have eaten

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 April 2024

Psalm 3:5
‘I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.’

a time of restoration
The purpose of restoration is to return something to its original condition. As we pass through life, we experience things that affect our condition and this in turn blocks us from what God had in store for us.
God wants to bring restoration in our lives so that we can be put back on course for His blueprint for our lives. This is something that only God can do.  We cannot restore ourselves. God is the one who can take all we have been through and undo the damage so that we can be restored to all He had intended for us to be.

Joel 2:25 So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.

When God restores, He is able to take all the years that have been lost or eaten and give them back to us. Locusts work in a particular way. They swarm in there thousands and descend on crops with military precision and wreak havoc and destruction in all directions in a very short period of time.
This is exactly what can happen in our lives and many people who have been through such an experience can identify with this. But God is the one who can undo large-scale destruction and return things to their original condition.
