In the last post I wrote about God’s wake-up call to the people of Judah in the form of a devastating locust invasion. Basically everything had been destroyed by these creatures and the nation was left in ruins. But how do we get from this terrible wrath and destruction to a place where God promises that he will ‘Restore The Years?’
If there was any one phrase that could sum up our relationship, it would be God’s promise from the book of Joel that He would ‘Restore The Years’. We want to share our personal story of restoration, but before we get to that, I think it would be helpful to understand what God meant by his promise in the original context. The next few posts will be a little breakdown of the book of Joel.
