I will make up for the years that the ‘arbeh-locust consumed your crops – the yeleq-locust, the hasil-locust, and the gazam-locust – my great army that I sent against you. — Joel 2:25 NET
It is God who says, “I will restore.” Only the divine hand can do it. Christ is the restorer, for he has made atonement for us.
Wherever there is a Christian who is hurt by sin or sorrow–the face of the Christ on the cross, beams on it with healing in its beams. “By his stripes–we are healed.” By his wounding—our wounds are cured. His visage was marred–that the marring of sin in our faces might be changed to beauty. By his sorrows–our sorrows are comforted.
