Are you a car restorer?

Are you a car restorer?

This was a thought that was shared with me at one of our Stations devotionals and so I decided to write a devotional about it.

You know how when a car enthusiast looks at a dirty, rusted out heap a mess of metal and they see a new shiny restored car – they don’t see the mess they see the possibilities.

Most of us would look at it and say there is no hope for it and pretty much write it off as ever being like new again and leave it in the trash heap and walk away.

But then the one with the vision looks at that heap of mess through the eyes of Faith and sees it as it should be – restored and brought back to life. Sometimes even better than new – better than when it came off of the assembly line – it has been restored!

This is how God our maker looks at us – He looks at us through the eyes of Jesus – He knows that the rusted out, dirty, heap of a mess is worth restoring because he made it and sees it as it should be.

The soul restorer knows what parts needs to be kept. What parts need to be restored. Which parts need to be replaced. Which ones need to be destroyed so that the new parts can function correctly in the new place this is Soul Restoration.

I am challenged today to let my maker restore this old heap of mess with a new vision and a new hope for the future!

“So the workmen labored, and the work was completed by them; they restored the house of God to its original condition and reinforced it.”
(2 Chronicles 24:13 NKJV)
