This morning as I began to write, the words “Restoration God’s Way” began to flow in my thoughts. I just finished reading John 15 about abiding in the vine and thinking about the previous writings in Stephen’s Gate about restoration and God giving back the years that the locust have eaten away. As I began to pen the words, the Lord gave me these thoughts:
I will restore unto you the years that the locust have eaten. As you abide in the Vine, there will be great fruit. Great fruit will be produced. Those in need will of that fruit and will be satisfied. They will know that I am the Give of Life…I am the True Vine that gives vitality and life to all who abide in me. Partake of me says the Lord, partake of Me, as life is flowing in abundance from Me. You will not be able to contain this flow. Man will not be able to contain it. It will be like lava that suddenly erupts from a volcano and burns up all that is not of Me in its path. For my own, it will be a washing over, a cleansing of all that has held you back from enjoying Me. My Spirit in this Kairos moment is being poured out. All you have to do is receive. I have waited for this hour, says the Lord, to witness and see what my Father has shown Me since the beginning. Don’t delay, move quickly. Move out, move out, move out. Now is the time.
Restoration God’s way is not our way. His way is better. As you abide in Him, He will instruct you and give you a strategy that will confound and confuse your enemy. Although the duration of heartache, pain, and waiting has been long, it has not been wasted. When He restores it will be better and greater than before. He is the Redeemer! The key is abiding in Him and hearing His voice. Relationships are being restored and you have all that you need to do your part. He is the God of more than enough. Take some time to read and meditate on the Joel chapter 2 and St. John chapter 15 and watch them connect for you. He loves you and is anticipating this time with you. Move out to enjoy Him. You will not be disappointed.
