It's Payback Time!

Joel 2:25 (NKJV)  "So I [God] will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten ..."

Have you been challenged by an impossible situation? Maybe an illness or disease; perhaps family or financial troubles. Maybe even all of the above!

Put your confidence in God. He will put the right person in the right place to meet a need. He will perform that miracle healing. He will change the heart of that loved one. God can do whatever it takes.

2 Kings 4:8-37 Tells a story about a wealthy woman who needed a miracle. The Old Testament prophet Elisha raised her son from the dead. This woman needed another miracle too.

There was a famine in the land and Elisha instructed the woman to take her family away for seven years. When the woman returned, her home and land were taken over (2 Kings 8:1-6). The woman had to appeal to the King to get her property returned.

Gehazi, Elisha's servant was telling the King about the miracles that Elisha had done. Just as he was telling him about how Elisha raised a boy from dead, the woman showed up with her appeal. The timing was remarkable.

2 Kings 8:6 says, the king appointed a certain officer for her, saying, "Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now."

God gives you more than you are entitled to. He makes up for lost time. The devil tried to steal from Job. The Bible says, "The LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before (Job 42:10). Like He did with Job, He will do for you.

God can change anything---whatever your need, I believe now is the time to receive the blessing God has for you. Put your confidence in Him, He has crowned you to be a royal priest (1 Peter 2:9). He wants you to live like one.

Be blessed!
