Theme: Repairer of the Breach
Scripture : Isaiah 58:12
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up
the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the
breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
Points To Ponder
Since Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, God has always been about
restoration. Whether you are the prodigal son whose father runs to him when he
turns the corner coming home or Jesus on the Cross looking down on humanity
as He pays the ultimate price for our salvation. It’s all about restoring God’s
children back to Him…bottom line, He wants us back!
There are some situations in our life that seem like we can never repair the
damage done. Marital, family, friends…the world says “burn me once, shame on
you; burn me twice, shame on me!” So it is so difficult to rebuild that trust once it
has been broken.
That’s where Jesus comes in. He is the Repairer of the Breach—
Whether it is the breach of humanity to God
Just that breach between you and your family member who won’t talk to you .
He is the one who can repair it all!
Does it take work on your part?
The hardest work—you have to LEAVE IT ALONE!
Let God work on the other side…
In His time, In His way…He is touching their heart, softening it, readying it…
So He can minister forgiveness and restoration.
After all, isn’t that what we all want?
To be forgiven…to be restored.
But remember… only He can restore the breach.
Now you just gotta let HIM do HIS job!
Let’s Pray Together
Jesus, help me to let you take care of the relationships that are fractured in my
life, the ones that are in need of repair and need your touch to make them whole
again. Teach me to let go and let you have control to work on the other end so
that forgiveness and restoration are possible. Show me how I can prepare my
heart for this miracle of restoration. Reveal in me what I need to change to
prepare for this gift.
I thank you for doing what only you can do,
