(Devotional by Day Spring)_
I am encouraged to know that no matter what kind of mess we may be in today, God can Re-do it and make it all brand new. No matter how far lost someone might be, no matter how broken, how sick, or whatever it may be, there is always hope that it can be made whole once again.


If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV

There are many “RE” words that are packed with hope and encouragement. The word REpurpose reminds us that many things once discarded, considered useless, and put aside for the trash heap, can be brought back, become useful once again, have value, and take on new meaning.

In the Scriptures we find some wonderful “RE” words that can keep hope and encouragement alive and thriving in our hearts and help us to discover the new things God is doing in our lives.

—Roy Lessin, excerpt from his New Devotional: REpurposed


I am the LORD…I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments.
Exodus 6:6 KJV

Redeem means to be bought back, delivered, ransomed, or purchased. As our Redeemer, God has purchased our freedom in Christ from the slave market of sin, delivered us from Satan’s power, and made us His own possession. We have been redeemed from a useless life to a fruitful life; from a life of bondage to a life of freedom; from a life of guilt, condemnation, and judgment to a life of forgiveness, justification, and peace.

Restored & More

I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten.
Joel 2:25 KJV

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

Psalm 51:12 NKJV

“For I will restore health to you
And heal you of your wounds,” says the LORD.

Jeremiah 30:17 NKJV

Restore means that God brings back and gives to us again what was once taken from us or lost to us. God assures us that what was lost can be found, what has ended can begin again, and what is no longer seen can be brought back into view. He can restore a broken relationship, lost health, a lost blessing, a broken heart, a former ministry, or a former joy.
