Just because your prayers have not been answered, doesn’t mean your story is over. Keep going.
This week we’re exploring the restoration in God’s big story. And, whether you realize it or not, restoration is the part of the story we’re living in right now. Jesus said “the kingdom of God is at hand.” This was a common theme throughout Jesus’ teaching. He was here to announce it. God’s kingdom is to be our first priority.
We cannot explore restoration in God’s story without looking into the book of Revelation. This can feel apocalyptic and scary, but there is much more to it. John provides us with important imagery about the future. One of the strongest images in this book is that of what heaven will be, it’s perfection. Something you may be seeking right now?
God is restoring things to the way he wanted them to be all along. This is the segment of the story we’re living in right now! But what does all of this mean for us today? It’s not here…yet.
Restoration is a time of both now and later.
