In the castles of our lives, we have all suffered breakdown in our walls at one time or another. You know what I am talking about…even our armor has gaps that has allowed sin to pierce us, to make its way into our hearts! If that wasn’t enough to fight, there are those wounds, those rips in our hearts, where the actions of others has torn away! We have experienced whirlwinds, tornadoes that have brought vast destruction leaving painful situations and circumstance in its wake! The Lord has seen them all! He says do not fear! I am here! As You seek me, I restore you!
Psalm 23:3a He restores my soul
Joel 2:25a And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten
Jeremiah 30:17a For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds saith the LORD
Restore…to return, to give back, to take back…But we must remember that when the Lord restores, He takes us back to the original, to the one He made us to be, being ever perfected!
The world tells us that “time heals all wounds” that is just not truth! Time alone can never truly heal and restore, only the Lord’s touch can restore completely what was lost!
The Lord said that there is an increase being poured out upon His people, both in the natural and in the spirit, An increase, yes, but deeper than that…it’s a MORE! This is the More that restores to the original! More immediate healings! More deliverance! More freedom! More provision! More harvest! More revelation! More boldness! More and deeper worship! More and more, we will move in His love, honoring and preferring one another, become more of a reflection of Him - More integrity! More unity! More of Him! This increase, this state of More will cause the Body of Christ to Break LOOSE of those mindsets that has held us back, got in the way of truly loving one another! Those niggly differences in doctrine, the way we have ALWAYS done it before, tradition, will burn away in the more of the Lord! As we surrender our thoughts, our actions, our selves….as we give Him ALL, We will unite at the cross and move in His Resurrection as we reach out to the lost and dying world! I feel like breaking out in song, “More love, More Power, More of YOU in my life!”
Father we come before, humbled by Your love, asking for Your help and guidance as we give you all! Help us, Lord to see those areas that we have kept from You and teach us how to really let go, and let God! We love You, Father and are grateful! In Jesus name amen!
