Even though your suffering was much and the destruction of loss great, what was lost will be restored and you will begin again–and thrive! If a tree is cut down, it will sprout again and its tender shoots will not cease. Though its 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.
Inside My seed grows My redeeming love. 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. Your beauty will be renewed–with more than you had.
See I have given to you, victory over the ruins of time that has come against 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. I will prosper you and what you have lost will be returned. 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.
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!
I will clothe you in beauty and the sweet spices 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.
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 you back 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 the miracle power of My love. What you have lost, I will Restore and your life will once again be one of true beauty.
