I Peter 5:10 ” And the God of all grace, Who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

My husband and I have remodeled several homes over the years. At first glance we saw broken windows, missing shingles, and sagging (or even missing) porches. But on closer inspection we saw solid structures and good bones. And after a lot of hard manual labor, we were able to restore them back to what they once were. But it tells us here that God is also in the restoration business. He isn’t willing for this broken world to stay in its present condition. Just as we looked at a house and saw it’s potential…God looks at the world and sees promise through the work of His people. Sure it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to restore a house…but in the end is the hope and promise of something beautiful. In the same way God looks at this world and only sees it’s perfected and finished condition through His Son, Jesus Christ.
