When you survey your possessions, nothing will be missing. You will have many children; your descendants will be as plentiful as grass!
In the Scripture, Job experienced great losses—his children, his business, and his health. Just when he was about to give up, a friend said, “If you look to God, He will rescue and heal you. This loss is temporary. When God brings restoration, nothing will be missing.” Later, when Job stated, “I know that my Redeemer lives,” he was declaring that God would finish what He started. Job’s thinking shifted from “this loss is permanent” to “restoration is coming, health is coming, family is coming, victory is coming,” which is what God did for Job. He not only restored what Job had lost, but God gave him twice what he had before. Just as God promised, nothing was missing.
That’s the way our God is. Don’t judge the rest of your life by what’s missing now.
When God gets finished, nothing is going to be missing, large or small. Nobody will be able to tell what you went through. You’re going to come out stronger, healthier, more fulfilled, blessed, and prosperous. Your time is coming.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are on the throne, and You are with me through every time of loss. Thank You that You can bring me out of difficulties better off than I was before they showed up. I believe that Your favor is on me and that nothing will be missing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
