HE STILL RESTORES Luke 4:16-21
“Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.” (Luke 7:22)
When God completed the process of creation, He carefully appraised everything He had created and concluded that they were very good. Genesis 1:31 says “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Adam and Eve fell into the error of sin, and this brought corruption and degeneration into the world. After the fall, mankind began to worship created things such as the moon, stars, mountains, rivers, trees and animals as God. Because the Almighty God is a jealous God, He responded by cursing the earth, and this led – created things to work against humanity. The land refused to yield its increase, weather became contrary, and animals became wild and unfriendly.
The Creator, through His love and compassion sent His only begotten Son on the difficult assignment of restoring mankind to his original state. May God’s Name be praised for ever. During the life and ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ on earth, He went about restoring things that had been destroyed by the enemy back to God’s original plan and purpose. Through the Lord Jesus Christ, the restoration power of God was released, not only by miraculous healing and deliverance, but also through forgiveness of sin, restoration of destiny, recovery of lost glory, and restoration of communities (Luke 8:39-40)
PRAYER LINE: Father, in every way pervasion has entered into the body of Christ, please step in to completely restore His Church in Jesus’ Name. (O.H)
God’s love and compassion restore a penitent sinner.
