AND I WILL RESTORE

AND I WILL RESTORE
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

"And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm; My great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed."
Joel 2:25-26
-------
Renewing Father,
Thank you for using the "locust and worm" of trial to reveal to me something of Your character and manifold power.
Thank you for utilizing the "locust and worm" as a means of laying naked and bare my sinful soul.
Thank you for stripping me of earthly desires;
Thank you for putting out unholy fires.

Thank you for loving me.
------
You are not absent from what you give me nor unaware of what eats at the frailty of my soul. You transform agents of destruction for my good, and You use them to conform my soul to Yours.
For blessings I don't deserve,
And a love without reserve,
I give You praise.
Sanction good for my soul and allow my "fields" to yield a harvest of abundance in accordance with your grace, goodness, and glory.
Translate good from evil ...
Sanction my soul for blessing and position me for favorable and abundant provision.
Amen.
