Joel Osteen Sermon 9 September 2021 Don’t take the bate of disappointment – The unique thing about God’s restoration is that when God finishes his work of restoration, nothing will be missing. The love and beauty of our God is manifested in the fact that even when we make mistakes, take the wrong steps and bring the trouble on ourselves, God in his abundant mercy, disregards our undoings and restores us to glory. The moment we turn back on God, He comes running toward us, not in judgment but in mercy and compassion. God is full of love.
Refer to the parable of the prodigal son, when he realized his wrongs and decided to go back to his father, his father upon sighting him from afar, ran after him to embrace and welcome him. That is how God is ever ready to run after us, welcome us and forgive us of all our wrongs. This parable is telling us that when God is done restoring us, we are not going to come out almost the same but we are going to come out with nothing missing. We will come out complete and even better.
