As Good As New

| 1:22 MIN READ |

In this season of life, we find ourselves searching for a new normal. All of us have had to adjust to how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our work, families, and friendships. During these times of adjustment, it can become very easy for our joy, hope, resilience, and overall spiritual health to become worn down and worn out.

In Psalm 23:1-3 (ESV), David reminds us that Jesus is the great restorer of our life. He writes, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.”

The word “restore” is one of the most exciting words in the Bible. What does it mean that Jesus is the restorer of our souls? It means that He wants to help reconcile broken relationships in our life. It means that He is able to return what has been stolen from our lives. It means He is able to refresh and heal our bodies, minds, and souls. It means He is able to bring back to strength what has been made weak, and make whole what has been damaged. He is able to make you as good as new!

Today, be reminded that Jesus is your restorer. He is with you as you navigate this new season of life. You can be at peace knowing He is able to rebuild, refresh, and restore you. No matter what areas of your life are depleted, damaged, or broken, invite Jesus, our Good Shepherd, to be the restorer of your soul.
