He Restores My Soul

What does God do to restore your soul?  The phrase, "He restores my soul" literally means, "He brings back my life". Throughout Scripture, when something is restored, it is always increased, multiplied or improved so that its latter state is significantly better than its original state.

Some ways that He can restore our souls:

Refreshes:    to replenish

Psalm 19:7  The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.

Envelopes:   to enclose completely

Psalm 91:4  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Satisfies:      to fulfill

Psalm 37:23-24  The Lord delights in the way of the man whose steps he has made firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

Transforms:  to change

Romans 12:2  but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Observes:     to keep one's eye on

Psalm 34:15  The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.

Renews:       to regenerate

Isaiah 40:31  but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

Embraces:    to cherish

Psalm 34:18  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 

Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed with life right now. Maybe you are walking through deep waters. You may long for your soul to be restored, to be brought back to life. There are a few things that may help you as you seek that restoration:

  1. Remember who God is – that He is still on the throne in heaven, reigning in perfect power.
  2. Keep talking to God through prayer.
  3. Read His Word and review His promises.
  4. Connect with other believers for fellowship, worship and support.

God wants to restore your soul – He wants to bring back your life – He is your hope and refuge no matter how much you are enduring – His love is everlasting!
