The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional October 17 2023 is ”God Recycles Damaged Things”
SCRIPTURE: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.— 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV).
Recycling is something that has developed over the past several decades and is now a big business. We are all encouraged to put certain types of trash in special trash containers for recycling. It is good to take used and even damaged things and create something new from them. We may think this is a modern idea, but God has been doing it as long as time has existed.
There is nothing about you or your past that God cannot restore and make something new out of. He actually uses those people that the world views as completely without value and throws away. Look forward to your future and never think it is too late for you to have a good life.
Prayer of the Day: Thank You, Lord, for being a good recycler and for restoring everything in my life that is damaged. You make all things new!
