Mercy and Restoration

Earlier this year, I felt as if all had failed. I had lost everything. This past June, my friend introduced me to church. I had stopped attending church regulary for almost 6 years! I immediately felt a revival in me once I went to the church. There was an uplifting message concerning restoration. The Bishop stated that From January through June, some people have gone through alot. He gave this verse:

Joel 1:4

       What the locust swarm has left
       the great locusts have eaten;
       what the great locusts have left
       the young locusts have eaten;
       what the young locusts have left
       other locusts have eaten.

He explained that what we had- had been stripped away from us and that we have nothing left. Even the little we had left had been taken away. He prayed for restoration for July to December. I claimed that I will be blessed. I had FAITH. I believed that the restoration will be mine.

The Bishop then told us of the following verse concerning restoration:

Joel 2:25

       I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
       the great locust and the young locust,
       the other locusts and the locust swarm 
       my great army that I sent among you.

I thank the Lord because it has come to pass and continues to pass. The Lord has blessed me and is restoring me. I stand in awe. I know he loves me and I write this with tears in my eyes because His love is great. I thank the Lord for sending my friend to show me a place where I have come to find my love, Jesus. I cannot believe that I spent so many years away from his presence. In His presence there is hope! There is FULLNESS of JOY!

I cannot begin to count my blessings here with you, they are immense. I can count them in my heart and say Hallelujah! For He is Good!

I was at work the other day and I shared a verse with my fellow Christian colleagues. I quoted:

Lamentations 3:21-23

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Yes, His mercies are new every morning. Not every week, not every month but EVERY MORNING. That is why I have hope. For I know that it is more that sufficent.

Jesus,

I love and adore you. I praise you. Thank you for your Great Mercies. Thank you for your restoration. Indeed, MY GOD LIVES!

Amen

Heal me Oh LORD

I know that sickness is not my portion. I claim that:

Deuteronomy 7:15  The LORD will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases.

Isaiah 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.

Dear Sweet Jesus,

Cover me with your blood. Breath life and health into my lungs. I shall not believe the report of man. But your report that says I am HEALED!

Amen

I leave you the words of a song:

Whose report
Will you believe
We shall believe
The report of the Lord

His report says
I am healed
His report says
I am filled
His report says
I am free
His report says victory
