One of the most fearful things in the Old Testament, was a swarm of Locusts! They would come in like a flood and devour everything in sight.
When they were gone, there was nothing left. The crops were totally destroyed, the vegetation that provided shade and shelter was gone, and life as they knew it was over.
After the locusts, there would always be famine! Many people would soon die from starvation. The swarming of Locusts was a dreaded event that foreshadowed massive death!
But the locusts weren’t just a naturaL phenomenon. Their total destruction was so heinous that the Bible uses them as a type of Satan, the evil-one, the destroyer. Everyone of us, at some time in our life, faces loss. And it may seem to us that our lives are over … that there’s no coming back.
Well, I have good news for you. Even when you’ve suffered loss, you can get it back! God doesn’t want you to live out your days with a “poor me” attitude, struggling to make ends meet, borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.
IF YOU’RE LIVING BELOW WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, YOU’RE NOT A VICTIM,
YOU’RE A VOLUNTEER!
In the next issue of Lifestyle, I’m going to give you five promises from God that He will help you get back what the Devil has taken from your life. Whatever you do, don’t miss it!
