He Will Restore The Years The Locusts Have Eaten

| Restoration

This is one of the most fascinating scriptures full of amazing promises, found in Joel 2:25. We love to quote it and we should but it is important to remember the context.
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten.” That is a promise certainly worth claiming. Remember that it is based upon a context of repentance!

Here’s the context. God was about to bring judgment and He paused and uttered these words: “Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to your God for He is gracious and compassionate… and He relents from sending calamity. Who knows, He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing…The threshing floor will be full again…I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten…you will have plenty to eat…never again will my people be shamed.”

God wants to restore everything the locusts have eaten but it is premised on repentance! Have a blessed day!
