God’s word is powerful. It’s true. It’s a promise that can’t be broken and an unbreakable comfort in any situation. His word is a gift to us, but it also acts as our guide throughout life’s trials, showing us how to trust God even when things don’t make sense or feel right.

In the 23rd Psalm, David writes:
God is our shepherd; we shall not want.
He makes us lie down in green pastures; He leads us beside quiet waters.
He restores our soul; He guides us in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me (Psalm 23:1-4).
Matthew 16:19, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that grew into a large tree. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field and when someone finds it they sell everything they own to buy that field with its treasure. The Kingdom of Heaven is also like a pearl worth more than all the money in the world because it can make you rich forever if you find it!
The Kingdom comes as an unexpected thief (Matthew 24:43) who has already stolen everything we need for life (James 4:13). But he left one thing behind—our souls! We’re not just talking about “intellectual” knowledge here; we’re talking about knowing what matters most so we can live our lives according to Biblical principles instead of man-made ones which are often used against us! This means no longer being fooled by those who live by sight but only seeing through eyes open toward Christ Jesus who died for us all–even those who aren’t yet saved themselves (1 John 2:2).
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me” (Psalm 23:1-4). God is faithful to restore what the enemy has stolen from you!
When Jesus was on earth preaching His message He often used parables to teach His followers how to live in peace with one another and how to treat others with kindness and love (see Matthew 5:3). For example, one of Jesus’ most famous parables told about four different types of soils that received seed from a farmer (Matthew 13:3-9). When one hears this story one cannot help but think about life today and realize that we are all like those soils receiving some form of seed from God even though it may be hard for some people who have grown up without any knowledge whatsoever about Jesus Christ or Christianity as well as those who have never been exposed at all but only after hearing something positive about Him decide it might be worth giving Him a chance too!
“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” -Psalm 126:4
God will restore what the enemy has stolen. He is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
In this verse, God is promising that He will bring back what has been stolen from us. He will restore our peace of mind when some things seem hopeless or difficult in our lives. If we are facing a financial crisis or loss of job; if our health is deteriorating due to disease; if we have lost loved ones through death or divorce; then God wants us to know that there is hope in Him! Even though these things may appear impossible at times, God’s Word assures us that His plans for our lives always work out for good (Romans 8:28).
In James 4:7-10, God says to you, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
- Submit yourself to God: in this case, it means giving up all control over the situation and allowing Him to work on your behalf.
- Resist the devil and he will flee from you: this means that when temptation comes knocking at your door, resist it! Don’t let your flesh take over; instead fight against it and push through with His help.
- Draw near to God: This means having an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father where we draw close physically (by praying) or mentally (in our thoughts).
When the enemy tries to destroy you, God will make it right.

God has promised that He will restore everything that the enemy has stolen from us. What was stolen? Our health, relationships, finances and self-esteem. The first two were taken away by sin (our own and others), but the last three have been stolen from us by Satan himself! This is why we must be on guard against him at all times because he is always looking for a way in—through your thoughts or actions—to steal something from you. But God wants to protect you from him so that your life can be restored!
For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light. Luke 8:17 NKJV
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, [a]hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Luke 6:27-36
We have seen a lot of ways that God will make things right when they have been stolen from you by the enemy.
