What is total restoration?
What do you want God to restore in your life?
You have to have vision and be willing to go through a process.
You need to allow him to strip you down, to be able to restore it, can you give up yourself? Can you surrender all to him?
This is a hard one, we are human, we want to be in control and for me this is the hardest because I was controlled for so many years, I don’t want to give up my control. So yes, sometimes even with God I hold on but last night I realized I might be blocking my own blessing by holding on.
I realized that you need to believe this verse:
Psalms 23 The Lord is my Shepard I shall not want…
We need to let the Shepard take care of his sheep, we need to let go…
“My sheep know my voice and they will follow me”
God needs you to be totally depended on him, to not try to do it yourself, to follow, to totally trust him for everything.
In order for total restoration you have to be a candidate for restoration…
You need to believe “No weapon formed against you will prosper”
I noticed last night I am a lot like David, he had a bad childhood, he endured many hardships, he lost it all and was thrown in prison, things were coming at him hard and fast for so many years, yet he believed, he had faith, he never gave up.
I know no matter how many times I get knocked down, no matter how many storms I go through, I never stop believing. I am human and I do question God when? How much more do I have to endure for it to be my season? Yet, through it all, I still have “crazy faith”
These were David’s traits:
David’s character was:
Commitment / dedication
Obtained vision from God
Obtained courage from God
Obtained covenant from God
Repented to God
Restored by God
Because of David’s faith look at all he got from God. Yes, it didn’t come overnight, yes, he had to endure many hardships but he held on to his faith and look how God had blessed him.
When God is stripping you, he’s getting ready to bless you, when things are coming at you, he wants you you have total dependence on him.
This is the lesson I learned last night, as I was late for church because the bank paid 2 mortgage payments in one week and my credit card took the whole amount I owed out of my checking account and yes, I still haven’t found another job, so there is way more money going out them coming in.
But I realized again at servicd that when I got divorced and I got no alimony and 250.00 a month child support for 2 kids, I depended totally on him. I had started a new business that he instructed me to do, I walked out in faith, just depending on him as I had no one else to turn to.
He provided for me and my girls every day for the last 4 years since and he even blessed us with a home we own on top of all that.
Yes, I can not worry, I cannot stress, I will bow my head, I will surrender, I will give it all to him and I will trust him, depend on him and know because he is my God I shall not want, I shall not worry.
So my friends, this is my year of restoration, this can be yours too, all you have to do is depend on him, surrender and never stop believing…he can and will do it for you!
