Restored through Him...

"The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them." - Isaiah 11:6

In reading through Isaiah this morning, I came to this passage and was overwhelmed by two simple things.  First, I was reminded that nature will be restored as it was meant to be.  When God created in the beginning, He created a place where man and creatures existed in harmony.  He created a place where death and destruction was not part of daily life.  This will be restored.  Things that once happened will happen again.  These are not things that are out of the question, but things that are completely within the possibilities of God's power.

Secondly, those animals are able to do this because they are led by a little child.  They are led by the strength and power of Christ.  It is only because of Christ that this is possible.  Also, it is because He actually led the way.  He did not tell them, but He showed them by doing it Himself.  He said, it is possible, come follow me and do as I do!

This caused me to expand the idea a bit more.  Knowing that God has the power to restore the relationship between man and creature to its original state, even after all that has happened, don't you know that He has the power to restore relationships between humans (friends, spouses, coworkers, church members, associates, etc.).  And the beauty of it is that we do not have to wait until the end of the age.  God has the power to restore even now.

In Christ, 

Bro. Grant
