God will Repay (And That's a GOOD thing)

Have you ever had an experience that you feel has stripped you bare?  Ever felt like you had nothing left when the season was over?    Think about locusts and what it looks like when they have come and eaten everything — stripped it bare.   Is this how you felt at the end of that season?

As you know, my family had a situation like that last year.   We are still recovering from that and probably will be for a long time, in fact, I dreamed about it last night.

Check out these verses from the small OT book of Job that discuss what happens after a season like this in your life.  God Himself says, 

I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten
    the great locust and the young locust,
    the other locusts and the locust swarm[b]
my great army that I sent among you.
26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
    and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
    who has worked wonders for you;

If you are in one such season and you feel as though metaphorical locusts are devouring everything in sight, remember …. this, too, shall pass, and when it is over God will repay you!  Days of plenty, days of God working wonders are ahead!
