“When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream” (Psalm 126:1)
Restoration is such a biblical idea. The Bible is full of stories of broken lives, wrecked dreams and dashed hopes. In these stories, the power of Faith brings such a sudden turn around to each situation that the people cannot contain their emotions.
One example can be seen in Psalm 126:1, ‘When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed’. There may have been a situation you practically gave up on but then God reversed it miraculously. Perhaps Psalm 126:2 describes how you and your loved ones felt. ‘Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy!
Hosea 6:2 describes a scene of two days of death and a third day of resurrection. ‘After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us’ This is a direct prophecy of Jesus’ resurrection on the third day. His disciples had lost all hope when, suddenly, He walked out of the grave! Maybe today your hopes are lying dead inside the grave with satan’s guards at the door. Take courage, the third day is coming. Restore our fortunes, o Lord, like streams in the Negev…He who goes out weeping…will return with sings of joy’ (Psalm 126:4-6)
OUR PRAYER TOGETHER
