The ministry of the enemy is stated in very few words… to steal, kill and destroy, but thank God we are no longer prey to him. However, peradventure you have lost something, perhaps a dream or a vision. God can and will restore them to all you. Remember Job, he lost everything but his life, but he waited patiently and trustingly in God and when God restored him, the Bible says his end was far better than his beginning.
I do not wish for you to lose your loved ones like Job did, but I do know that even the years that look to you like you have wasted, God can restore them back to you. He can cause you to dream again, to visualize again, to live again, to achieve again…
If you will trust and wait on God and endure in the difficulties, He will make your today and your end far better than your beginning.
Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. James 5:11(KJV)
