Restoration – #64

And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10. You cannot change what you have been through. But you can change how you let it control you. I just have to consider where I am physically and be thankful for where I am mentally and grateful for where I am financially.  I prayed for restoration. When the bible says we don’t know what to pray for, we really don’t.  Our prayers are so small, which makes our desires small which makes our thoughts about our God small. If we say, “Through God all things are possible”.  Then we should believe all things are possible and not use a regular dictionary to define our desires, but use the biblical meaning of the word.  The regular dictionary meaning of “restoration,” is to return something back to its original condition, the biblical definition of the word “restoration” has a greater meaning that goes above and beyond the standard common usage. Throughout the Bible, God blesses people for their faith and suffering by making up for their losses and giving them more than they previously had before.  We all know the story of Job. Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.  He also had seven sons and three daughters.  Job 42:12-13. The biblical meaning of the word “restoration” is to receive back more than has been lost to the point where the ending state is better than the original condition.
