Then the nations which are left all around you shall know that I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it.”
Today God is promising us two this from the above verse. He will
1. Rebuild the ruined places
2. Replant the desolated
Hebrews 11: 1 says,
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
We should start seeing our future through the eyes of faith. That is what the above verse insists on us.
Ruth, the Moabite woman who must have heard about the wonders that the God of Israel did to His people believed in Him and did not leave Naomi who was an Israelite. She stuck beside Naomi saying, …Your people shall be my people and your God, my God (Ruth 1:16). God who saw this rebuilt her life. And we find her name amongst the only four women mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus.
Today, if you are expecting God to rebuild your life, see through the eyes of faith! Whatever God spoke to you through visions, His promises, His word, prophecy, etc., He will fulfill it. Just believe.
There was a woman who had three children. She lost her husband at the age of 43 and did not know what to do next. She was abandoned by her own family since she married in cross-culture. So she got help neither from her family nor from her in-laws. Not knowing what to do with three children, one day God showed her the same promise verse. She started seeing her future through the eyes of faith. She believed that God would rebuild her life. And God rebuilt her life. Today she is a well-known ministry leader, and her three sons are involved in harvesting souls for the kingdom. The first son has a TV station which telecasts all the Christian shows, the second son has founded a Bible College and the third son is a well-known evangelist through whom God is harvesting souls across the world!
He is reassuring you
Today if you are feeling that you need to be rebuilt God is reassuring you that …I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” Genesis 28:15.
Whatever He has promised you, whatever you are seeking for – ask God for it, and start seeing it through your eyes of faith. God will fulfill it.
