Nahum 2:2–For the Lord will restore the splendor of Jacob like the splendor of Israel, even though devastators have devastated them and destroyed their vine branches.
Even in the midst of the devastations that the people of Jacob had experienced, God promised them restoration. Not just any restoration, but a return to splendor. It’s a promise to renew. A promise to restore. No matter how devastated we feel, God is able to completely renew and restore us.
Lord, some days, I feel such a sense of devastation in my life. I start to think I am worthless and ruined. Yet You love me and promise to restore me. I will place my hope in You.
