I have been hearing the Lord say that many of you that have been in ministry or rather you have refreshed the saints and have had huge struggles in your relationships at home because of the calling on your life. Many have struggled financially,physically, and even emotionally.. But you kept going forward in spite of it all because of your love for the Lord and because He was the greatest thing that you ever had in your life! You know Him.
The Lord showed me that many of you were weary with the battle but that He has seen and He has heard your cries in the night. He has seen the loneliness that has come even in the middle of many people at times and now He says “Your dreams of your family being whole and being set free have come up before me. Your dreams of a beautiful abundant life have not left me says the Lord for I have wanted this for you also. I want it for you so much that I died to give it to you… Well I am saying to you now that the tide is turning I am saying the tide is turning” For I will bring an abundance of Joy back to my people that have sought me and have been faithful in their darkest times.
I saw you lift up your hands in the midst of the darkness while you were yet hurting! I saw the tears running down your cheeks while you were giving me the sacrifice of praise and now I say that it is time oh yes the set time to favor my precious ones!! It is time to restore the years that the locust has eaten. It is time to favor Zion!! It is time for your childhood dreams to come true. For I am not only a God of the ministry that you do but a Daddy to you and to your children! I care about your peace and I care about your relationships. I love to see you walk in unity with one another..
Before there was ever a church there was the family and I am now and will be in the restoration business… Shout now because your children are coming home!! Peace will rule in your households again.. Oh my children know you not that I love my families.. it is time for the world to see the glory again in the family. It is time for them to see what peace and love and joy looks like!! I am restoring all things..
“Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] [a]Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures” Isaiah 60: 4-5 (AMP).
“And I will restore or replace for you 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 (AMP).
