Psalm 126:4 “Pour out even more of your love upon us, reveal more of your kindness and restore us back to you “
All night long I awakened to the words restore, restore my soul, restore my life .
The question arose in my mind, what does it mean to be restored, and how do you want to restore my life, Lord?
When one is worn down by isolation, desolation can creep in with a sense of nothingness, worthlessness and weariness. The battle becomes too hard,the lament too long to bear and the night never seems to end.
Then morning comes and the light breaks in, and a steady sound of waves pounding upon the shore remind me to remember once again.
There is a rhythm in being restored. It’s in the remembering, the recalling to mind the goodness of God. His faithfulness and mercy in our lives. It’s in the place of gratitude that a strength begins to come back and a new seeing comes into view.
We each have been given a mantle from God. Like Elisha, we just need to look up into the heavenly realm and see it, believe it and use it to part the waters and walk into the sea upon a completely new path never walked on before.
“ That’s where he restores and revives my life. He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so I may bring honor to his name.” Psalm 23:3tpt
Pause and ask God where you need to be restored today?
Where are you weary or worn down?
How does he want to re-story your life?
Breath in his love and kindness to you and await the gift of the mantle he has to give you.
Wait Then Pray;
We are so ever grateful that you, God, are the one and only one that can give us what we need in our desolation. You provide for us a place to be restored and revived with your strength.
Thank you for this.
Would you grant us new vision to see the pathway before us that we have not walked on before. May we have eyes of faith to believe what seems impossible is possible for you.
We seek you this day, we seek your face always. Let us see where you are moving in our lives and how you want to restore your kingdom here on earth.
May we be a part of your work in and through us.
Pour out even more of your love on us, reveal more of your kindness and restore us back to you.
In the beautiful name of the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
