I heard, “That which the enemy has stolen shall be returned seven-fold. I AM the God of more than enough.”
“Beloved. In your travels through life, the thief came to kill, steal and destroy. It is his only mission, My Child. There is no truth in him, no goodness, no mercy, no kindness.
He is a liar and the father of lies. I know that much has been stolen from you through the years of your life.
Finances, health, children, relationships, possessions, peace of mind; all these things the enemy has stolen. Know this, My Child. I came to bring you life and life abundantly.
Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. You are in My Dominion now. You no longer belong to the kingdom of darkness, for I have called you into My marvelous Light.
Yes, Dear One. There is NO lack in My Kingdom. I will always work ALL THINGS together for your good as you trust in your Savior, for I AM a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Me.
Demand of the enemy that which he has stolen he must return seven-fold. For your Abba Father hates robbery. In My Faithfulness I will give you recompense for the years you have suffered.
Instead of humiliation, you will rejoice in your share. Have I not spoken it and shall I not make it good? Yes, Beloved! Return to your Stronghold, O prisoners of Hope: This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you.
My Grace is sufficient for you in all things. Seventy times seven shall you be blessed to overflowing, this is My everlasting covenant with you.”
