It seems like many have been going through or have recently gone through a season of loss. There’s a variety of things that fit in that category, finances, health, relationships, jobs, etc. What I believe is happening now is the beginning of those things which have been lost are being restored.

Now, with that, they will probably look different. I’ve talked about restoration in the past. When you restore something sometimes it looks different. Even if you restore something to its original appearance, there were still new parts and pieces that were used during the restoration process.

Be encouraged because God knows everything that you have lost. God knows your heart and your desires. He is now putting pieces back together. He’s replacing some old worn out parts with new parts that will work better and run smoother.

The loss you have suffered in your life is now being restored. Now stand on that word with authority and watch it come to pass!
