...it is the RULE!
God declares in His Word that he restores what has been consumed. And if you read the verse that describes the locusts etc...it describes NOTHING being left. NOTHING! Not a stalk, not a leaf, NOTHING left to harvest what so ever.
What the chewing locust left,
the swarming locust has eaten;
What the swarming locust left,
the crawling locust has eaten;
And what the crawling locust left,
the consuming locust has eaten.*~*
SO if things look beyond bleak, DEAD, nothing but rot, obviously impossible--THAT is what He restores.
I am meeting people every week on the OTHER SIDE of being *restored*...restored to Christ and never in a million years could I have imagined the lives they had led prior...murderers, promiscuous, vandals, drug addicts, murdering their own children via abortion...on and on and on. GOD RESTORES! NO ifs, ands or buts about it!
*~* Joel 2:25
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you."*~*
(this entire chapter is worth reading!)
