Time had been a terrible foe. Choices of regret brought consequences that were hard to forget. A life filled with trauma and pains made it hard to see the sunny ray of hope. Looking into the mirror, you wonder, where did the time go? As you look at the pieces of broken glass, you contemplate, that there must be more to life than this. Dreams dance in your heart, although the outward appearance they remain unseen. The thief had stolen in the night and the clock was ticking rapidly.
As you looked back at the time that had passed, it brought a sorrow to know, it was the time that you couldn’t get back. Although it was hard, you refused to accept the despair that was beckoning for you. There was a seed that had been given to you. It was a seed that promised, all things new. Faith and believing were what would water this seed and make it grow.
Though it may be only a tiny seed, there is hope. God is going to RESTORE double to you. Like water rolling off of an umbrella, this anointing will roll off onto you, as you believe and receive with all of your heart. This is a word for miracle faith, a heart willing to believe in resurrection power to heal and save, in this life and the one thereafter.
Like a strong evergreen in the heart of the forest, Jesus is planted to restore life to you. Through the veins of this tree flow the fountains of living water. You are his branch, as you abide in him. As the branch did not choose what tree to grow from, so you did not choose him. Through his unrelenting love, he chose you. And all that he has, he gives to you.
Like the evergreen, the salt of healing medicine comes through the needles of each of its branches from this wonderful tree. During the dark night, The Almighty increases the moisture of His life giving air. Droplets of his spirit clothe the branches of his family tree. His resurrection life flows endlessly through his branches to release all things new again. Even pressure causes the increase of the waters of his spirit to flow to you.Yes, tension brings forth the anointing. His peace is a life force flowing through the heart of this tree. Apart from this tree, the branches can do nothing.
Even though your suffering was much and the destruction of loss great, there is hope for you yet to begin again. If a tree is cut down, it will sprout again and its tender shoots will not cease. Though it’s root may grow old in the earth, and its stump may die in the ground, yet at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth life again.
There is hope, even though time has taken its toll, it’s not over yet. As you mourn the loss of time and all it has stolen, Jesus leans over to you and says,
“Inside my seed grows my redeeming love. Even as the enemy came to steal kill and destroy, I have come to save. I am gracious and abounding in mercy, my love will never fail. Like going back in time on a jet plane, I am turning back the time for you. Like peeling away the layers, I will restore what the devourer has eaten and I will give back double for your pain.
See I have given to you, victory over the ruins of time that has come against you. On the hills that have made a place for you, I will turn back time. Upon the one who stole from you, I will give you justice and revenge. Seven times what he has stolen, he will give back to you.
The triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment. Though his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens, he will fly away like a dream, unable to be found again. In his self-sufficiency, he will be in distress and the hand of misery will come against him.
Those who hope in the Lord will be renewed, what they have lost, I will restore. They grow in the streams of my living waters. I will crown you with lovingkindness and tender mercies. By abiding in me, I will feed you with good things, to renew your youth as the Eagles.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. He shall bear fruit even in old age. His face will glisten with glory, he will never wear the shame of what was stolen again.
You will bring forth your fruit in season and through my refreshing waters, I will prosper you. Even the money that you have lost, will be returned to you. I will even restore double what you had before. Though the wicked swallows down riches, he will vomit them up again. I will cast them out of his belly and restore my provision to you. That is your inheritance in me. Like a tall tree, flowing through my branches, what I have, I have given to you.
I will bring you back from your loss and pain and you will see the light of my life blooming forth all around you. Like peeling away old layers of skin, all things will be made new again. I will come from the north in golden splendor and restore your soul with blessings. I am excellent in power and abounding with justice. I lift up my voice to the clouds, that spectacular waters may cover you. Even in anointing, I will give you double.
No purpose of mine can be withheld from you, it’s not over yet. I will restore your losses to you and give you back twice as much as you had before. It may seem as though time deceives, by stripping bare your branches. Let your heart not be worried, this is not the end, but the double blessing of the beginning. I will make you laugh again. My people will never be put to shame.
I will clothe you in beauty and the sweet spices of my bark will be like perfume to you. You will be restored to youth and renewed with my beauty. I will pour out my spirit, from me it will flow out to my branches. I will nourish you with my resurrection power and those things that seem as good as dead will see life again.
As my spirit flows through every branch of you, it will fill the air around you and surround you with my fierce love. My love will heal away your wounds and my joy will remain in you.
I will protect you like Moses, hidden in the papyrus in the river bank. Here in me, you are home. Safe and protected from anything that could ever hurt you. I am the true vine. Abide in me and I in you. In my might, I will execute my word to you.
By my glory, my promise will be born. For your pain, I will give to you double. Let this promise take root in you. Redemption grows in my tree. My love is turning back the time, like turning back pages in a book. I will rewrite your story in my miracle power. What you have lost, I will RESTORE”.
