Word 4U Today



‘…That you through his poverty might become rich.’ 2 Corinthians 8:9 NIV

Are you thinking, ‘If only I hadn’t said, or done (insert random EPIC FAIL here)’? You’re not unique;

we all have our regrets.

But God wants us to learn from them, not live in them.

‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.’

Jesus wore the crown of thorns so you could wear the crown of righteousness,

and be in right standing with God.

‘Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ’ (Romans 5:1 KJV).

Being justified gives you the right to stand before God and claim His best.

Is your business struggling or failing? Peter the fisherman experienced that too.

So Jesus, the Restorer, said to him: ‘…““Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”.” But Simon (Peter) answered and said to Him,

“Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.’ (Luke 5:4-7 NIV).

Just one word from Jesus, and you can go from being broke to business is booming!

Jesus actually gave Peter back more than he lost. So the word for you today is, ‘Believe for more than you expected, because our God is a God of restoration.’ God restores!

What now?

Chop the flat end off a carrot or parsnip. Put it in a saucer of water. Keep it watered and see what happens in a few days. See how God takes the scraps and restores them to flourishing beauty. Though, that restoration doesn’t always look like previous success.
