I heard The LORD say, “Your insufficiency is the resting place of My Glory!”
In times of restoration God does wondrous works.
When God is on a restoration move, shame is completely wiped out. Instead of shame we receive double blessings and even when we are confused, we receive the double portion.
“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,” Isaiah 61:7.
God has declared this year as a year of restoration to the Body of Christ and there is nothing the enemy can do about it.
The confusion we are seeing right now is rather a promotion into the double blessing. Even though he intends shame, it is rather turning out that we are receiving the double.
If we look through God’s eyes, instead of the shame a lot of us have grown spiritually in this season. Family relationships are being restored, because we are having more time to sit together and look at things through God’s Word.
For the confusion in the world a lot of souls are turning to Christ over the internet and even in home meetings, because the world is realizing that Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.
In the day of restoration as this, even sin doesn’t count. When we turn to God even for the sins we have committed against him, we are rather promised the double blessing;
“Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee,” Zechariah 9:12.
Keeping looking to Jesus, all things surrounding us are being turned to proclaim God’s goodness. Even in our weaknesses the power of God is resting heavily on us.
We may not know but we are growing higher in dependency on Jesus.
God is magnifying weak and little things. Instead of crying over weaknesses or insufficiencies look to Jesus and give God thanks for his glory is rather manifesting in that area of your life this day of restoration.
“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My Strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore, will I rather glory in my infirmities, that The Power of Christ may rest upon me,”2 Corinthians 12:9.
In and encounter with The LORD, I saw someone who had difficulty in speaking but a time came when The LORD turned all that he did to glory.
This person who could speak with difficulty would sing and made hit songs. The Glory of God magnified every little thing he did.
Coming out The LORD led me to the story of the lepers;
“And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die? If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there. For The LORD had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life. And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it,”2 Kings 7:3-8.
Then The LORD said, “Your insufficiency is the resting place of My Glory. Even your groaning is coming up to My Throne and returning with blessings.
Your cry for help is thundering in the camp of the enemies.
My Blood sanctifies your prayers and they roar as the lion. They are coals of fire in the camp of your enemies.
I AM unto to you God. Your God, Your glory, now glorifying you.
For your shame I AM bringing in the double, and for all the confusion, you have received the double portion.
You will again boast in the wealth of the nations.
You will yet laugh; you will be happy; you will rejoice; for I have for ordained everlasting joy.”
Blessings in Christ,
