The Lord is our encourager and the restorer of our soul.
He restores my soul; Psalm 23:3
The Lord Jesus Christ through His death and resurrection restores us back to the Father.
He is our Shepherd who picks us up when we fall. He restored David after his sin with Bathsheba. He picked up Peter after his denial of Christ and used him in a mighty way at Pentecost and thereafter. The Lord restored Jonah in the belly of the whale and gave Jonah His word a second time, “Go to Ninevah and preach!” Jonah ran from God, but after the Lord restored him, He used Jonah to preach one of the greatest revivals in history. The Lord saved and restored Saul, also known as the Apostle Paul, and he became one of the greatest Christians to ever grace this planet.
The Lord restored to service a burned-out, discouraged and depressed Elijah in the wilderness.
Beloved, God is in the restoration business and He will repair, restore, and bring you back to a place of blessing and usefulness if you will let Him. You may have been through some trouble, but God is the One Who brings restoration.
Isaiah 61:7 says, “For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.”
Joel 2:25 says, “I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmer worm.”
Some are down with a lot of “worms” in their life. Some have lost years to a bad marriage. Some have lost years to health problems. But the Lord’s mercy is greater than your mistakes, and He is a Master at fixing any disaster.”
God loves us that much. Whether we’ve done things that are our own fault, or whether it is the enemy who has stolen from us, God is still the Restorer!
God wants you to have your dream fulfilled. He wants you to have joy. He wants you to have health in your body. God is a good God! And He’s got good things in store for us. Don’t let the devil steal anything from you. Declare restoration over your life! Take what belongs to you, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Welcome to the month of April 2015, the month of your restoration, AND
HAPPY EASTER CELEBRATIONS.
Yours in Him,
Pastor Lillian Haastrup.
