By Don Ruhl

We see the destruction of a culture in rebellion against God, and we think that things will never be good godly again, but when we think so, we show that we do not fully know God as we ought to know Him,

“Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. And it shall come to pass, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy, and to afflict, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the LORD” (Jeremiah 31.27–28). 

If the Lord can make cities and nations, He can destroy them, and He can remake them again.


  • Do you believe that the Lord can rebuild what He has torn down?
  • In the meantime, what should you do?
