God Restores People

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Psalm 51:12

I don’t know what wounds you carry, but maybe you have doubts about whether they can be healed. Am I too far gone? Has God given up on me?

Maybe your heartbreak is so overwhelming that you can’t imagine healing and relief.

But this truth is eternal: nothing is too hard for God.

God wanted to be sure you knew this was true, so He included in Scripture countless stories of shattered lives that He made whole.

David had a child through adultery and had his lover’s husband murdered, yet he went on to become known as a man after God’s own heart.

Mary Magdalene was possessed by demons, yet she was delivered from them and, later, was the first to see the risen Christ!

The Samaritan woman had a long line of broken relationships, and her bad reputation made her a social outcast. But after she met Christ, she became the first missionary to her village.

We could go on and on to make this point: God restores people.

What about you? Do you want to know that God’s healing power is enough for you too? Come into His presence and risk asking this question: “My God, can You heal the deepest wounds, hurts and anxieties of my heart?”

Then open your heart to hear His sweet response:

All things are possible with [Me]. — Mark 10:27

There is no place so dark that the love of Christ can’t find you and heal you.

Dear Heavenly Father, I agree and declare that all things are possible. In Jesus Name I declare I have joy like a river in my soul, I have peace like an ocean. I am willing and obedient and I will eat the best of this land.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
