Need To Be Restored?

Need to be restored?

Focus not on the bad action or bad thinking that you have Focus on God: Take courage and know that God will restore you.  In I Peter 5:10 the scripture has, “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

You’ll note that the scripture above does not use the word “restore.” But after a little digging in a Strong’s Concordance I learned that the word “perfect”* has to do with being restored. So yes, after you have suffered a while (Can we presume that this suffering is even if you brought it on yourself?) God will bring you out of the situation.

Remember He loves to take care of His own!

* Strong’ s Concordance “Perfect”  — From G2596 and a derivative of G739; to complete thoroughly, that is, repair (literally or figuratively) or adjust:—fit, frame, mend, (make) perfect (-ly join together), prepare, restore.

We Can Satisfy Him, Really?

Hello all:

I think of being satisfied as such a human trait. Yet, as I was reading the book by Jentenzen Franklin entitled, Fasting I came across this comment, “True worship that comes from our hearts feeds Him and satisfies Him” ~ p. 71.

Hmmm… we can satisfy God? Interesting…
