A Time of Restoral, II: God’s Reclaiming Process
From the series, God is Building New Process in You. As we discuss A Time of Restoral, the second segment of the ‘Building’ series, we discover how to trust God’s restorative process and allow His power to make us whole.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
God has made a promise that He will give us restoral from our weariness. The past storms you have weathered and the debris that has remained do not disqualify you from your destiny God has planned for you. He will teach you new trust in Him – a hope to begin the process of renewal – and the desire and will to allow Him to complete it within your life.
Restoral is “the act or an instance of bringing something damaged or worn back to its original state.” God wants to do this for you. His desire is to make you whole.
To restore is to reclaim and to reclaim is to renew. This process includes restoration and recovery and is itself, in fact, the resurrection of such – one intended and used by God to bring back to life and to create something new.
As God walks us through this place of restoral, lean into Him. What He is removing will no longer linger as burdens or brokenness of your past, for He is inscribing into you new life, new perspective, and refreshing restoral to experience newness in Him.
As we walk through God building new process in us, there are yet many small pieces that make up the finish. Although they are yet small components, they are meaningful to the big picture that God wants us to see.
