I heard this today, “This is the year of Restoration.”
God is proclaiming, “It is the year of The LORD’s favor!”
The year of Joel 2:25.
“And I will RESTORE to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm, and the caterpillar, and the palmer-worm, my great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and shall praise the name of Yahweh your God, that has dealt WONDROUSLY with you; and My people shall never be put to shame!” Joel 2:25.
“Know this, Beloved. I did not send hardships your way. The thief, the devil, is the evil one who comes but to kill, steal, and destroy.
I came to bring you life and life more abundantly. I AM the God of Restoration.
Those wounds that you thought would never heal shall be healed and bound up and anointed with the Healing Oil of the Spirit.
I AM the Mender of broken hearts and broken bodies and broken lives. I was wounded, My Child, so that you could be made a NEW creature, new in spirit, mind, and body. It is like the brand new flesh that appears over a wounded spot.
I will restore to you the years that were stolen from you, if they were because of sickness and disease, or death of a loved one, or lack, or depression or oppression, or hardships.
I will restore your peace of mind. For it is by the Savior’s stripes that you are healed. You have called to Me and I AM answering, you have cried out to Me and I AM declaring,”Here I AM!”
And My Light shall break forth like the morning, your restoration shall spring forth speedily, and My righteousness shall go before you; The Glory of The LORD shall be your rear guard.
There IS a Balm in Gilead, Dear One. I AM the Great Physician and the God of All Comfort. I AM your Abba Father, the Father of Lights from whom all blessings flow.
Every good and perfect Gift comes down from My Hand to you. You shall recover, My Child. Surely, this is the year you shall recover all.
This is the Year of The LORD’s Favor. He who gave His own Son for you shall with Him GRACIOUSLY give you all things. Will you believe Me, Beloved?
As it is written: “Therefore all those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; those who plunder you shall become plunder, and all who prey upon you I will make a prey.
For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says The LORD, “Because they called you an outcast saying: No one seeks you.”
I was wounded for your transgressions, I was bruised for your iniquities: the chastisement of your peace was upon Me; therefore declare, “BY HIS STRIPES, I AM HEALED!”
I will bring restoration in every way as you look to Me, My Child. I will heal you; and I will reveal to you an abundance of Shalom peace, health, prosperity, security, stability, and truth.
I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life. I AM the Prince of Peace who restores your soul. I was wounded so that you would be made whole.
I AM the God of Restoration and surely I AM your Helper and the Sustainer of your soul. You shall recover completely, My Child.
All of My promises are Yes and Amen. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and shall praise the name of Yahweh your God, that has dealt WONDROUSLY with you; and My people shall NEVER be put to shame.”
