Claim Your Restoration

12 “This is what the Lord says: ‘Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing. 13 There is no one to plead your cause, no remedy for your sore, no healing for you. 14 All your allies have forgotten you; they care nothing for you. I have struck you as an enemy would and punished you as would the cruel, because your guilt is so great and your sins so many. 15 Why do you cry out over your wound, your pain that has no cure? Because of your great guilt and many sins I have done these things to you. 16 But all who devour you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile. Those who plunder you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil. 17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’ 18 This is what the Lord says: ‘I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on His dwellings; the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the palace will stand in its proper place.’” ~ Jeremiah 30:12-18NIV

Zion, the city of the LORD, has constantly been attacked through the generations since its establishment. Zion has been trampled, and the Temple no longer stands in its place, yet the LORD says He will have compassion on the city of Zion. He will have compassion on His dwelling. He will restore Zion and heal her wounds. This is just a city, but the LORD will restore it. If the LORD has compassion on His city, how much more will He have compassion on His people in whom He dwells?

The LORD promised us restoration from the days of the disciples and the apostles. Restoration for all that we have gone through, from sickness to torment. For by the wounds of Jesus, we have been healed. The chastisement that brought us peace was upon Him. There is restoration for the Church in Christ Jesus. We don’t have to remain wounded beyond repair, as the world tells us. We don’t have to go through life without peace, constantly tormented as the world tells us is normal. No, we have been restored by the LORD God Himself. He bought our freedom, so don’t dwell in slavery. Claim your healing. Claim your freedom. Claim your restoration.

LORD God, help me to claim my healing that You have purchased for me. Help me to claim my peace of mind that You purchased for me. Help me to claim the peace that You gave me that belongs to You. The peace that is Yours, that the world cannot give and the world cannot take away. Teach me how to be restored in You, LORD God. Help me to be transformed by the renewal of my mind through Your precious and Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
