Beloved... The Lord God Almighty, God the Creator, He is Our Restorer!
Sin and the consequences of our wrong choices will corrupt, weaken, cause pain, sufferings, loss, hold us in captivity or chains, spiritual death, separating us from God. The trials, troubles, and tribulations of this world, often leave us ravished, ruined, heartbroken, lonely, scattered, sick, diseased, struggling emotionally, depressed, addicted, abused, indebted, discouraged, devastated, destroyed... even near death, BUT GOD, The Creator and Restorer! A Restorer is a person who redeems and repairs or renovates so as to return the "item" to its original condition. The Lord, Our Creator and Restorer; delights to restore His children (mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially) to the original masterpiece He created, when He made us in His image and likeness. At Creation, God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. Then SIN happened! :(
But Jesus, Our Redeemer, He...
1 ~ Rescues God's children from the wrath of sin, shame, sufferings and the chains of the enemy... The Son sets us free, so we are free indeed. Jesus, Our Savior, Deliverer, Chain Breaker!

God, your God, will restore everything you lost; He'll have compassion on you; He'll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors. God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children's hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live. God, your God, will put all these curses on your enemies who hated you and were out to get you. And you will make a new start, listening obediently to God, keeping all his commandments that I'm commanding you today. God, your God, will outdo Himself in making things go well for you: you'll have babies, get calves, grow crops, and enjoy an all-around good life. Yes, God will start enjoying you again, making things go well for you just as he enjoyed doing it for your ancestors. But only if you listen obediently to God, your God, and keep the commandments and regulations written in this Book of Revelation. Nothing halfhearted here; you must return to God, your God, totally, heart and soul, holding nothing back. This commandment that I'm commanding you today isn't too much for you, it's not out of your reach. It's not on a high mountain - you don't have to get mountaineers to climb the peak and bring it down to your level and explain it before you can live it. And it's not across the ocean - you don't have to send sailors out to get it, bring it back, and then explain it before you can live it. ► Deuteronomy 30:3-13 MSG
