Today I woke up with these scriptures in Joe 2:25 "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the LORD your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame. 27 Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the LORD your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame. The word restore mean s to give you back what was stolen or lost from you. And thank God for that, for in my case it was a very good life But most people think it means more than you had before. Jesus restore back what was lost in the garden with Adam and Eve. Mt 17:11 Jesus answered and said to them, "Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things. That was our salvation and commutation with God again through the cross. Plus He redeem us from the curse of law of sickness and poverty.
But going from Glory to Glory is quite a difference thing. The Lord will restore you. But why be content for just that, even though that feels pretty good. But while you were on the ash pile, was it not there that you realized you missed the mark in your expectancy of His promises? I certainly did. I realized I had settle for less than God had promised, I had short changed myself. therefore it was not too hard for the thief to pull the rug from under me. We must take our place in His kingdom where it will be more difficult for the enemy to tumble us out of our place.
I remember once when I was in Asia ministering that the people put me in a place where the enemy would have to go through three sets of groups of people before anyone could reach me. Believe me it was hotter in that room where I was staying, but safer. To destroy me they would have to destroy all those other before they could have reached me. What I am saying is Isa 54:2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes. We have too much at stake to be in a place where the enemy can use a few people to destroy what God has given unto you. 1Ch 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested. I pray this prayer too enlarge my territory so that evil cannot reach me and cause me pain. Yes there will be battles, but battles with God help you will always overcome.
