Restored

Read Psalms 79:1 through 81:16; Acts 26:1–32

It seems that a new trend in reality television shows is restoring old cars. Investors with deep pockets team up with talented master mechanics to create machines that are the envy of antique car lovers. Old cars ravaged by time and the elements are restored to the beautiful machines they once were.

Time and circumstances have a way of wearing people down as well. Lives full of potential and hearts filled with dreams are ravaged by the shame of sin and brokenness. Fortunately, God has both the power and the heart to restore His people. This is as true today as it was when the Psalmist penned these words:

Restore us, Lord God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved (Psalm 80:19).

Even the most broken heart lost in the deepest sin can be restored by Jesus. What was lost be can found. A life that was tarnished can shine in the newness of the restoration of God’s touch.

Thought for Today: God can restore you no matter how tarnished your life may be.

Quicklook: Psalm 80:17–19

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
