Restore What the Locusts Have Eaten
In Joel 2:25 the Lord Most High says, “I will compensate you for the years that the swarming locust had eaten.” When locusts swarm and come through there is not anything left. They devour it all. But God said I am going to compensate you for it. I am going to restore. Everything the locusts have eaten (and digested). And I cry out today, “Oh God, what the locusts had destroyed in me and my family and my relationships and in my nation and in my church, I cry out now restore!” Psalm 51:12 says “Restore to me the joy of my salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit”. Restore the joy of God! Restore the joy that hopelessness has taken, that attacks against the people of God have taken and the tolls they have taken on the people’s hope for the future. Restore the joy!
