What Does God Want from Me?

God’s Desire for Restoration

Joel 1-2


Devastating Invasion of Locusts. 1:2-20; 2:2-3


Yet the heartbeat of God longs for your return. 2:12-13

• Your return is never too late.

• Your return is to be with all your heart.

• Your return is to your God.



Two Big Lies of Satan.

1. God is mean and vindictive.

2. God doesn’t care.



The Truth: the heartbeat of God longs for the return of his children who wander from him.



Take Home Idea: Even after you have wandered away, the heartbeat of your God invites you to return.
