DIVINE RESTORATION IS HERE
“Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.” Isaiah 61:7
Restoration is actually a recurring theme throughout the scriptures. The bible is full of stories of men who God changed their lives. Truth is that just reading the scriptures with an open mind should bring you hope.
Job lost everything but the scripture says in Job 42:10 (NLT) “When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!”
My dear friend, God is a restorer. I feel impressed in my heart to prophesy to you today that God is restoring everything you’ve lost back to you.
The enemy seeks whom he may devour by stealing, killing and destroying but God is a restorer. Satan wants you to think that its all over and that there’s no hope for you but that’s a big fat lie. In fact with God there can be no better yesterday. For years I always would say “there is no loss to the believer”. I believed it then but I actually believe it more now.
I remember a certain time in my life where humanly speaking it seemed I had lost everything that I had built over the years.
As expected feelings of fear, despondency and desperation filled my heart. Many of those nights I had to pray in the Spirit just to be able to sleep. I actually remember a certain night when the dark clouds were so heavy in the room. I literally could cut through that evil heavy cloud of darkness.
Don’t ever forget this, Satan will do everything to get you to a point of utter hopelessness and despondency.
Truly when you look at it from a human angle, it may truly be a hopeless case but God specializes in that.
Now one of Satan’s biggest tactic is condemnation. So he makes you wallow in self pity and condemnation when you consider all you could have done better or what wrongs you did.
But Restoration is without prejudice to the cause!
Whether by your foolishness, your disobedience or an outright attack of the enemy… it doesn’t matter!
So I decided to go on a fast. It was a long one, twenty one days actually. One of those nights while on a prayer walk for quite some hours, I heard the word of the Lord clearly to me. He said amongst many things that he had sent me an angel of Restoration. He stated clearly what he was going to do and how long he was going to work with me. I thought well ‘this is strange’, apparently because I had never heard that kind of a thing before.
Because the Lord knew my thoughts, He directed me to a story in 1 Kings 8. You can read it for yourself but he quoted verse 6 in particular;
“So the king appointed unto her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now”
The Lord had appointed me an officer(an angel) to restore all that was mine!
I am so persuaded in my heart that in the days to come, “Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor you shall rejoice in your lot; therefore in your land you shall possess a double portion; you shall have everlasting joy.”
Thank You Dear Holy Spirit, for i receive today, a double portion and restoration for whatever i thought i lost before now. I refuse to wallow in self pity and condemnation, rather, with joy, i draw up strength from within me because, God Himself is causing a restoration in all that concerns me, In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
