Topic: Divine Restoration (MFM Daily Devotional 23 June 2021)
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Psalm 126:1 – “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.”
MFM Daily Devotional 23 June 2021 Outline
No matter the failures, errors and hurts you have suffered in life, restoration is possible. The devil might take away your joy, happiness, health and other things of life and subject you to a life of misery and pain but the word of the Lord says that God will restore to you all the wasted years, in Jesus’ name.
All it takes is you having faith and trusting in Him and His words (Jeremiah 30:17). Your restoration requires your participation. God’s promises are conditional. You have your part to play and God has His own part. Our actions determine God’s reaction towards us.
There are certain things you need to know about your life and you need God to reveal them to you. When you know God’s plan for your life, you will enjoy divine restoration. When a troubled heart finds hope and faith in God’s word, it enters into rest. That is the place of persuasion (Romans 4:21).
In the day of your trouble and pressure, learn to call upon God through prayers. Fervent and consistent prayers to Him will restore all that you ever lost (Psalm 50:15). Restoration comes from God alone and not man. He can only pass through man to restore all your losses. So, do not hope in man; rather, hope in God.
Restoration is a process of returning something to its original condition by repairing it, cleaning it, etc. It is an act of bringing back something that existed before or that was stolen or taken away. As a Christian, the best way to full restoration is by being a good disciple of Jesus We have three parts to divine restoration.
The first part is conversion, which is a new beginning in Christ. God completely forgives the repentant sinner and declares him righteous in Christ (justification). The Holy Spirit then moves in to initiate significant changes in his or her life. I remember that my swearing and angry outbursts disappeared immediately I gave my life to Jesus.
You must read the word of God and fellowship with brethren regularly to make restoration easier and faster. Your restoration is accelerated when you are discipled by Jesus.
Beloved, I encourage you to seek sanctification and becoming like Jesus.
Where there is a will, there is a way
Receive double for all your losses, in the name of Jesus.
We give immortal praise
We give immortal praise
To God the Father’s love,
For all our comforts here,
And better hopes above.
He sent His own eternal Son,
To die for sins that man had done.
To God the Son belongs
Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with His blood
From everlasting woe;
And now He lives, and now He reigns,
And sees the fruit of all His pains.
To God the Spirit’s name
Immortal worship give,
Whose new creating power
Makes the dead sinner live.
His work completes the great design,
And fills the soul with joy divine.
Almighty God, to Thee
Be endless honours done,
The undivided Three,
And the mysterious One.
Where reason fails, with all her powers,
There faith prevails and love adores.
1. I bind the spirit of depression and frustration in my life, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord Jesus, carry out all the repairs necessary in my life now, in the name of Jesus.
3. I recover all the ground that I have lost to the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, open the doors of opportunity to my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. O Lord, give me solution to all the problems facing me, in the name of Jesus.
6. I declare divine restoration to all I have lost to the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord, make my case a miracle by Your power, in the name of Jesus.
