God Restores, God Returns
God’s desire for us is to receive all that the enemy has stolen from us; either directly or indirectly. It is our divine right. Faith is the ‘title deed’ to the things unseen, as the amplified version proclaims in Hebrews 11:1, and we can claim these things by faith in His word. The earth is the Lord’s and we are in His will as His children to inherit it (Ps 24:1, 37:11, Hag 2:8). All things belong to us (1 Cor 3:21, 22). We have seen so many examples in the bible of things that were lost, only to come back with interest in this earthly life (Prov. 6:30, 31).
The believers who have stayed plugged in to God have experienced the restoration of God. Job had took a great loss financially and was given twice as much as he had before (Job 42:10). Jacob had lost his son and received him again with great provision (Gen 47:12). The Word says even the wealth of the sinner is ours (Prov. 13:22).
When we pray in agreement with God’s word, we can read these restoration verses and pray that our children return from the enemy and get saved (Jer. 31:16, Acts 16:31).
God will restore what the enemy has eaten (Joel 2:25) and He restores our health
and sight to us (Jer. 30:17, Mark 8:25)
When we have something missing from our body, or it doesn’t function, God is the One to restore our soul (Matt 12:13, Ps. 23:3). He even commanded us to give life by the name of Jesus, even if there is no breath at all (Matt 10:8). He makes us like a spring of water and calls us a repairer and restorer (John 7:38, Is 58:11, 12)
God restores our place with Him (Ps 51:12, Eph 2:6). From the beginning He wanted to have a close personal relationship with Him. He ascended to heaven and took His own royal blood to the throne to make a place in heaven for us (John 14:2, Heb 9:12), so that we can come boldly to the throne of grace (Heb 4:16). He will restore us to Himself and ransom us for all eternity (Is 30:15, Ps 23:6). Since we have eternal life living in us now, we can accept the restoration promises in this life, and the promise that He will return for His church (1 John 5:11, 2 Cor 1:20, 1 Thess. 4:16).
