What is your favorite Bible Verse?
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you; And my people shall never be put to shame.” ~ Joel 2:25-26
God promised to restore Israel that had just been ravaged by locusts. The swarms came as judgment against Israel’s sin. God promised to Israel, even in the present destruction, to bring restoration. God has done the same for me, and the promise remains that there’s no life or person beyond the restorative work of God.
