MIRACULOUS RECOVERY – Saturday March 14th 2015

Memorise: And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. Joel 2:25
Read: 2nd Kings 6:1-7, Bible in one year: Daniel 1:1-2:30, Revelations 22
In our scripture reading today, we see someone felling a tree by the riverside and the axe head being used falling into River Jordan. Thank God for His power that located the axe head and brought it back up for the user to complete his project. There are people who have lost very precious things in their lives. With God, there is nothing lost that cannot be recovered miraculously. To recover means to find something you once lost. There are people who have suffered partial loss and there are others who have suffered total loss. No matter the type of loss you have suffered, the Almighty God will restore them to you in Jesus’ Name. In Mark 5:25-34, the woman with the issue of blood lost a lot. She lost her health because she had been in that situation for long. She lost her wealth because she lost her peace because when there is absence of good health and wealth, frustration can set in and this leads to depression. But by the time she met Jesus, everything she had lost was restored to her. For a user of this devotional, whatever good thing you have lost will be recovered instantly in Jesus’ Name.

Samson is an example of someone who suffered partial loss (Judges 16:21-28). As a result of his carelessness, he lost his eyes to the enemy. Even though his hair grew back, blindness remained in his life. By that Name that is above every other name, which is Jesus, every reminder of loss in your life is terminated in Jesus’ Name. Everything you have lost: financially, physically, in your marriage and career-wise shall be fully recovered in Jesus’ Name. Another interesting story that shows God’s ability to return whatever one has lost is found in Daniel 4:28-37. It is a story about King Nebuchadnezzar. This king became so proud that he refused to acknowledge God as the source of his achievements. In a bid to humble him and teach him that man cannot achieve anything without God, God caused him to lose his kingdom. He also suffered the loss of his sanity, humanity, dignity, glory and honour. In fact, for a period of 7 years, he was not different form animals, miraculously though, all through those years of his wilderness experience, nobody replaced him on the throne. The Lord kept his position intact until his training was over. Testimonies abound to show that the fact that an opportunity was lost does not mean it cannot be regained. As long as God is in the equation, He can reverse the irreversible. He can suspend laws and principles to make a point in your life. That is why those who think they have seen your end are in for a shocker. It is important that we always appreciate what we have so that we don’t lose it. If you have lost your peace of mind due to backsliding, you have to repent of those sins and confess the Lordship of Jesus. If you do these, you will become a new person and experience the time of refreshing from the Almighty God.     

Prayer Point

Father, by your mercy, commands a recovery of all I have lost in Jesus’ Name.
