You have to believe from the depth of your heart that God is in the recovery business! It’s one of His main specialties! Anything we lose that is rightfully ours, is of great importance to Him. Even redemption is about getting back what was lost due to the fall of man. The devil came to steal, and God sent Jesus to give back. There’s nothing in your life that doesn’t concern God. If it’s your health, He’s ready to restore it. If your peace of mind is nowhere to be found, He’s ready to give it back to you… in abundance. Even that joy that has turned to sorrow in your life, He’s so ready to turn into unending laughter.
The time you’re lamenting over that seems wasted or lost, can easily be given back to you. Whether or not we actually recover anything has a lot to do with our countenance, the state of our Spirit, the condition of our mind and the steps we take. One thing you must know is that you can’t get anything back if you remain discouraged and if you don’t get moving! Reading the Scriptures, David had to encourage (or strengthen) himself in the Lord first before he could begin to ask God for direction concerning the steps he should take to recover all that was stolen (1 Samuel 30).
Even in his distress, he encouraged himself in the Lord! That’s exactly what you must do! Don’t sit around waiting for who will encourage you. Stop throwing a pity party for yourself. The time has come for you to rejoice even when you don’t feel like it. You must remain hopeful even with your back against the wall and when everything looks so bleak. It’s time to shake yourself from the dust, and tell yourself, “I am going to make it”, “this thing will not defeat me”, “devil, you won’t have the last laugh over me”. “This second half of the year is mine”!
Encourage yourself, then recover! Encourage yourself, then recover! From this month of July till the end of this amazing year, except a recovery galore! It’s your month! Well, it’s actually my month😜🤣 but I’ll share it with you.
