Today’s 333 Devotional: “God’s Restoration”
“For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land.” (Ezekiel 36:24)
This is the first part of God’s promised restoration where He would give His people a brand new beginning.
God’s promise was to restore the Jewish people to their rightful land, the Promised Land, the land promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God was going to re-gather those He had scattered due to their disobedience. And the reason God was going to restore them is because of the promise or covenant He had made with Abraham.
When God told Abraham to leave the land of his fathers, the land of Ur, God said that He would show Abraham a new land, which would be for Him and for His descendants forever.
After his nephew Lot had left him, God took Abraham aside and said, “For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.” (Genesis 13:15)
God was faithful to His promise, and fulfilled the prophecy He gave to Jeremiah bringing the Jews back after 70 years of captivity.
“After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place.” (Jeremiah 29:10)
Even though they failed to keep God’s law, God never gave up on them, but rather worked to restore them.
The Bible says that even while we are faithless, God remains faithful, (2 Timothy 2:13), and that He does not change but remains the same, yesterday, today, and forever, (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8)
God has promised restoration, and that promise extends from the Jews and the Promised Land to you and me. And so, even when we fail and blow it, if we confess our sinfulness and repent, that is, turn from our ways and back to the Lord and His word, then God will restore us and use us once again in His service.
