Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. O LORD God Almighty, how long will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people? Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us that we may be saved. Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine,… Restore us, O Lord God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
I can pull myself up by my bootstraps and get on with life. People can learn how to live with debilitating diseases. We can eat right, get healthy, and even train to become physically fit, but there is only One Who can restore. He restores body, mind, and spirit. He repairs the most seriously damaged relationship in our human lives: the one between Him and us. HE RESTORES IT. We are whole and secure NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF OUR LIVES.
