It is common to find ourselves in a place of emptiness when we struggle with addictions, depression, and brokenness. Whether you are journeying through such a phase or haven’t yet experienced it, knowing about restoration and equipping ourselves for it can help you deal with these challenges better. But the beginning of healing and restoration is recognizing that we already have supernatural help and rescue.
Jesus in His journey on earth, until He was crucified and rose again, experienced more trauma than we could possibly imagine, and He understands our situation better than any person can. In understanding what we go through and having laid down His life for us, God’s overwhelming love offers supernatural comfort, help, and restoration.
Hebrews 4:15-16 says “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet He did not sin.” This scripture encourages us to approach God’s throne of grace confidently, where we can find help. We have hope irrespective of our challenges, that Jesus isn’t just a perfect help because He overcame it all, but that He also empathizes with us and wants to give us peace and healing.
A key practice that facilitates restoration is reading God’s word. The Bible being active and full of life, can equip you with the astounding knowledge of God and what He offers to mankind. Renew your mind with the word of God and find restoration through all your challenges as the Holy Spirit works in you.
