No matter what you’ve lost, God wants to bring restoration to your life—maybe through helping you get back what you lost or simply helping you heal and move forward. 

If God leads you back to what you supposedly lost then yay for you! You really didn’t lose anything after all. During your restoration process, the key is to allow God’s word to transform your mind by giving you a new perspective about what you thought you’d lost.

On the other hand, if God wants you to move forward and heal you instead, the key is the same except when your perspective began to change, you’ll began to heal.

You cannot dabble in your past when God directs you to move forward. Why? Because God has something better for you in your future.

Be prayerful: Humbly ask God to create in you a clean heart and that He replaces your desires with His desires instead.

Psalms 91

Standard

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord : He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
