Psalm 53: Restoration

Psalm 53

I don’t know what you may have lost in this life. What I do know is that you’ve lost something. We all have.

In this life, you will have troubles. (John 16:33)

That is a fact and Jesus doesn’t sugarcoat it. But – his words immediately before that fact – are “in me you may have peace.”

Peace in the midst of trouble. Yes, please.

God also promises restoration. In this psalm, the psalmist declared that God will restore the fortunes of his people. In Joel 2:25, God says, “I will restore to you the years the locust has taken.”

What have you lost?

God restores.

I think of things I have lost in this life and the ache of it all can be overwhelming. I know you understand.

And I, in my limited human mind, can not understand what restoration will look like. How such loss can be made right. How I can be given back was the world has taken. How the years of pain can ever be redeemed.

But I know my God is faithful. And good. And trustworthy. So, if he says restoration is coming, I will prepare myself and wait with expectation to receive it.
