Restore, not replace

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 restorationSometimes we may think that God does not want to bring restoration but we think that He will just bring a replacement. I am of the persuasion that God wants to restore and not simply to replace.
If we look at the story of Moses we can see how God works. God had a plan for Moses. God wanted to use Moses to bring freedom and release to the nation of Israel. Moses however made mistakes and ended running around the desert for years and years. When this happened God did not simply bring in a replacement to do the job. In due season He brought Moses back and the nation of Israel was free.
You see, God restored Moses; He brought him back, out of obscurity and used him just as He had intended. This is how God works.  God is in the business of restoration and not replacement.
