In Joel 2:25, the Lord comforts His people by assuring them that He insects will restore what appears to be impossible to revive. He says,
I will restore to you the years that the locusts have eaten.
Locusts are a relentless, marauding band of heartless devouring insects that devastate all vegetation within their path. One visit from a locust colony upon a field of grain and one’s livelihood could be set back for years. Yet, God promises that he has the power to restore what seems eternally ruined.
This is especially true with our spiritual condition. The Lord tells Ezekiel that not only can He restore what is ruined, He can revive what is dead! You may feel that your life is in ruins and that spiritually, you are as good as dead. Trust in the one who can not only lift you out of the ruins, He can breathe new life into your soul! Believe in the One Who revives!
