“For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them.” | Isaiah 61:8
“2018 will be a year of divine recovery, restoration, and recompense,” declares the Lord! “Expect to see My swift justice in the very areas of extreme loss and hardship that you had experienced in your previous season. As it is written in the book of Isaiah,
“Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen one in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
and he will bring justice to the nations.
He will not shout or cry out,
or raise his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice” (Isaiah 42:1-3).
“My Bride, I have been purifying you for such a time as this. Even as you have gone through the fire, I have been burning off the dross and molding. I have been shaping you, even as the potter does with his clay. You have allowed Me to have My way with you, and you have endured the process. Now, My Beloved, you have come forth pure and restored, as only what I desire in you has remained.
By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work (1 Corinthians 3:10-13).
“Watch now, as I open the floodgates and pour out a blessing upon you that you will not be able to contain! I am turning the bitter waters of the previous season into My sweet waters of refreshiong renewal and restoration! As I bring my restoration, things will not be like they have been before, but rather you will experience even better. I am restoring your joy, and you will laugh again! For out of your belly shall flow My living waters (John 7:38).
“Such healing and transformation are taking place right now, both physically and spiritually. Your health and vigor are even being restored in this very season! You shall rise up with wings like eagles, and you shall run and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).
“I am releasing a new-found freedom in you, even now as you enter into My rest. Allow me to rejuvenate and refresh you, My Bride!
My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone (Song of Songs 2:10-11).
“Arise and shine! Your light has come, Beloved, and My glory rises on you in this new season” (Isaiah 60:1).
When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. (Psalm 126:1-3).
