“I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten” (Joel 2:25). The
New American Standard Version says, “I will make up to you for the years . . .
eaten.”

This promise is incredible! We want to make up those lost years when we
weren’t following Him, to make amends and repay Him! But He says, “Wrong! You
cannot repay Me for a single wasted hour. Walk before Me in righteousness now
and turn from your sins, and I will make up all the losses, whether they were
yours, your family’s, or Mine!”

To repentant sinners the Lord declares, “Fear not . . . be glad and rejoice:
for the Lord will do great things” (Joel 2:21). You need not be ashamed of your
wasted years. God is going to remove from you the evil army, and you will eat
and be satisfied. You will never again be ashamed (see Joel 2:19-20, 26-27).

You were born for His eternal purposes. He planned for you a life of
satisfaction, joy and usefulness in His kingdom but then sin entered, and God’s
plan for your life was interrupted. The devourer moved in and years were wasted,
lost.

But now, in Christ, all is new—even the calendar! The Lord goes back to the
day the locust came, and He removes all those wasted years and starts counting
again from the moment you repent. All those blessings you missed were stored
up. All the joy, peace, revelation and usefulness that you thought were dead
and gone forever were actually kept by the Lord.

In hell, the damned may be haunted with a vision of what their lives could have
been. Some may see what they lost. But this is not so for the repentant. All
will be restored. They need never again say, “Oh, what I missed. What I could
have been. God had so much for me, but I blew it.” No! God can restore all the
wasted blessings.

The Lord desires to pour out on us all the blessings and joys in Him that we
missed earlier. Yet He does not make it all up with outpourings alone. The
outpourings become overflowings! “And the floors shall be full of wheat, and
the vats shall overflow with wine and oil” (Joel 2:24).

There is such power in repentance. It brings back to us all that the cankerworm
destroyed. God resurrects it all!
