Restoration

“I will restore or replace for you” says the Lord, “the years that the locust has eaten… the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.” (Joel 2:25-27)

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Although the past is irreversible and overwhelming at times… God is the restorer of broken dreams and shattered lives! He has declared a New Day available for all of humanity! God has laid a foundation of hope in Christ – He is saying we can be a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17)… and our old ways can be in the past! There is a new beginning waiting for us, filled with new chances, new opportunities and new expectations (Isa. 43:18-21). God will wipe away our rotten past and restore that which was lost, stolen or destroyed by sin, brokenness or the devil.

Restoration begins by Believing!

As the Savior of mankind, the Lord Jesus Christ has done all to rescue us from the things that diminish or destroy us. If we can but believe – hope opens the door! There is a restoration coming into our spirits, minds, bodies, relationships, and other aspects of our humanity. Believers can be delivered from oppression (Acts 10:38) and rest in the safety that effects spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being (Mt. 11:28-30).

Come, you weary, broken and lost and find a place of safety in His loving care for you.

Hope is a Destination!

Run into the arms of your Father in the Spirit! There you will have plenty and be complete, satisfied and whole. He wants you to know the truth and the freedom of walking in His Presence! It is His joy to reveal His heart toward you! He is a Father… like no other. He will not allow His people to be orphans or feel ashamed anymore. This is a profound truth that no one else can claim.

Let Him speak into your heart today… “I the Lord am your God and there is no one else!”

Favorable Outcomes

“For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.” (Ps 5:12)

We do not need to be a “big shot” to enjoy the blessing and favor of God. God blesses the righteous and surrounds them with His favor as with a shield. The “righteous” are people of childlike faith, who know God’s heart toward them. Children are amazing; with wreckless abandon, they place their highest priority on fun and laughter. They are not considering how to work the system or follow the rules perfectly. They are relying on favor in their relationships to produce favorable outcomes.  

Enjoying God:

Enjoying God produces favorable outcomes! Those who enjoy God and love His Presence are able to experience His favor like a shield. Think about it, a shield is a protective covering and refuge when our weaknesses make us vulnerable in the midst of personal trials, storms or battles. Being shielded is perhaps the most wonderful quality favor can offer us. Being shielded gives us a place of safety, where peace and rest can become our resource. Its God’s shade in the midst of the scorching sun.

 Notice the promise of Psalm 91:1-2:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is My Refuge and My Fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Those who spend time and energy developing their relationship with God consistently discover that favor is part of His promise. Living under the influence of the Holy Spirit is full of benefits and rewards that make life a blessing. Our active fellowship with God helps us recognize His divine power, that according to the Apostle Peter, has given us all that we need for “life and godliness” (2 Pe. 1:2-4).  

People of Faith:

Make note of this principle: As people of faith, we are pulling upon invisible realities… Kingdom Realities. Favorable outcomes are hinged to God’s will for our lives – He wants good for us! Yet we must recognize some basic truths of how the Kingdom of God works in order to believe our future will be blessed (Mt. 13:1-52). Trusting and learning to lean upon God’s wisdom and power will bring invisible realities into our natural realm of experience. God wants His Children to pull heavenly resources into their daily routine. He wants us to live in Him… in His environment – His Presence & His Glory. 

Letting God be “Father”:

The Blessing of God is so much more than money or provision, its a favorable position. Its the position of the “righteous” whereby God takes an active role in our lives. He is our Father, but letting Him actually “father” us is where the Blessing gets activated. God’s thoughts toward us are good and His actions are even better (Jer. 29:11-14). He listens to us, reveals Himself to us, delivers us from trouble and actively speaks into our lives moment by moment… simply because that is what fathers do.

Our Father offers the Blessed Place… A Position in His Heart! (Jn. 14:3)
