God’s Restoring Grace Abounds, Part Two


      Print This Print This      

For Jesus Christ, the Son of God, does not waver between “Yes” and “No.” He is the one whom Silas, Timothy, and I preached to you, and as God’s ultimate “Yes,” he always does what he says. 20 For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory (2 Corinthians 1:19-21 New Living)


Ride The Crest Of The Wave

Have you seen pictures of surfers scanning the ocean looking for the exact wave capable of carrying them to the shore with perfect precision? Have you seen them surfing in the tube of the wave close enough to brush their hands against the wall of water behind them as the crest of the wave moves over them with great power? Have you marveled as some ride the crest of the wave and move with its energy? Beloved, My promises are like mighty waves waiting to carry you to the shore of fulfillment with power and accuracy. Each one are “yes” and “amen” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

My promises, like a mighty wave, have energy and vitality capable of taking you to the very shore of manifestation, to the place where My desires for you take on physical form within the natural world. Don’t be afraid to believe all I have said about your life. Be willing to put the dreams of your heart into action. Daily abide in Me and profess all I have told you, and like a wave they will build and build till you are transported onto the shore of promises manifest.

I say these things because you are My dreamer and are overcoming all obstacles which seem insurmountable—willing to scan the horizon of promises I have spoken to you—ready to catch the wave and ride no matter what. Gird yourself with trust (Proverbs 3:4-6)

Look out across the horizon of your life. Can you see the waves of destiny and fulfilled dreams rising on the surface of your life as the manifest desire of My heart moves across the waters? I am releasing new energy to you today—energy to endure and overcome when the battles of life weary your mind, will and emotions.

I am invigorating your time with Me to bring about a multiplied of increased energy and stamina. Come into My presence and receive all you need. The water is moving. The waves are forming and what you once had to paddle hard to make happen will become easy as I pick you up on waves of My presence. Nothing is by might or power but by My spirit. Come ride with Me (Zechariah 4:6).

Nothing Is To Difficult For God

Beloved, it is as you claim; nothing is too difficult for Me. Indeed, you are never wrong when it comes to declaring who I am to you (Isaiah 41:10). Your whole being is enveloped by your unfailing hope in My provisions. This gives Me Great pleasure to see such hope, such faith. Hope in Me does not disappoint (Romans 5:5).

Your dreams are made clearer when you look up to the heavens on a starry night and faithfully locate a beautiful Solitary Star. Star gazing on the beauty above you draws your focus to Me and bids you to behold Me. Knowing I hold the stars in place gives confidence in My ability to hold your life and all it contains.

Beholding Me is everything and keeps you from being distracted by things going on in your peripheral vision. When you cease to behold Me you will find yourself at odds with others and vulnerable to resentment. You find yourself not given over to love. The only way to truly love others is to behold Me and be changed by My love (Psalms 134:1, John 1:29).

A thankful and grateful heart always loves. One cannot focus on the negative in one’s own self or others and at the same time walk in a place of contented gratefulness. The two, a critical spirit and a thankful spirit, cannot abide together. One must go to make room for the other.

Like a fountain cannot bring forth both bitter and sweet water at the same time, neither can you be loving and hateful, thankful and ungrateful, or judgmental and kind at the same time (James 3:10-12). Put off the old man and embrace a thankful heart (Ephesians 4:22). Restoration is often the fruit of thanksgiving. How can you truly know what you have if you always see through critical eyes? When one has critical eyes they cannot see the good around them and thereby miss out. Have a grateful heart and you will see that nothing is too difficult for Me in the restoration of all things concerning you.

The Mind of Christ

Beloved, cherish the lessons you learn in the trials and joys of life. When your heart finds its way into analytical thinking, pause and inquire—stop, take a breath, and ask Me what I am doing. Let My thoughts supersede your own. Know you have My mind even to the thoughts and intents of My heart. They dwell in you and are coming to the surface to transform all things.

Arise each morning with an attitude of agreement in this area of your thought life. Verbally commit your mind and thoughts to My will. Audibly confess that you have My thoughts. See them bubbling up like bubbles in carbonated water. See them bubbling from your spirit up through the recess of your thoughts and out your mouth. The time has come to declare over your own heart, “My mind is the mind of Christ and holds the thoughts and intents of His heart” (2 Corinthians 2:16).

Ah . . . knowing all things work for good for those who believe and are called according to My purpose is the answer, the anchor to steady your trust in the middle of any quest (Romans 8:28). Your mind is sharp and attentive My leading and is increasing day by day. I pour out graces upon graces to you, enabling you to grasp the height, breadth and depth of My love in new ways (Ephesians 3:18).

All I have promised is possible if you will only believe, and each Word I have spoken to you will manifest according to the promises I have made. How awesome is your faith in My promises! They will always come to pass for I dearly treasure your dreams. Yes, My beloved dreamer, you are emerging to walk in the dreams of your heart. Embrace the truth and let it bubble up and emerge on to every surface aspect of your life and the lives of others. Emerge, My cherished one for your time is here.


Visions Ride on the Wings of My Wind

Beloved, you are My stately king and priest (Revelations 5:10). My treasure chest full of gifts of incalculable value is now laid before your very eyes. All is in response to your grateful heart. All is in response to the unselfish sharing of your heart and gifts. Ah . . . how big your heart is. I know. Yes, I know because I fashioned it before you were ever conceived in your mother’s womb (Psalms 139:15-18).

Intricately I wove you with many colors. Carefully I designed you to hold unique and highly valued gifting. You have heard the saying, “They broke the mold after you were made!” This is truer than you know. For surely there is none like you in all that has been or ever will be. Fearfully and wonderfully made is what you are—a heavenly treasure in an earthen vessel. Such beauty . . . who can compare to your beauty, My beloved one? The answer is, “No one.”

I have so much in store for you in the world of adventure as you prepare for the continuation of your journey Home. As I direct your heart and gear all your dreams—all your visions for My Kingdom—you will ride in the soft touch of My protective arms while I smile, laugh and sing over you (Zephaniah 3:17). I am opening up portals in heaven and sending great visions I wish to accomplish through you. Yes, all things beyond your wildest imagination shall come to pass. The time of going forth has come.

Be faithful and unafraid as you journey with Me. Let the soft breeze of My ever-present wind of the spirit caress your face and the whispers of My love will tickle your ears. Your visions will bring the most hopeful smile to you and others as you envision the bright tomorrow I have planned for you. Hear Me speak and believe. Whatever I speak shall manifest as you take Me at My Word.

Visions, visions, visions . . . they will hound and follow you to no end until all comes to pass and My plans for you have been completed. Yes, My perfect plans for the one I love so much (Jeremiah 29:11). You are My chosen one and I delight in you more than you will ever know. No one can fathom and measure My infinite love for you. I am your God of Infinite Love and Goodness!!! Indeed, I am who you say I AM . . . .

Restoration of All Things

I value all things upright and pure, things you hold dear to your own heart. I value the complete and unadulterated joy you have over the treasures I have unveiled in your heart. My joy is your strength and will enable you to walk in the restorative power of love while I walk out the process of deliverance in your life— and in those you love (Nehemiah 8:10). I am sending restoring graces and great deliverance. I am calling the wind from the north, south, east and west to blow with settling breezes and bring your home to a place of bliss and call it a home with a Man of Nazareth heart.

My name shall be honored in your home, in the simplicity of your life. Every detail of your home and life will remind you and your entire household of My great love for your family. I am sending the fragrance of Eden’s garden into every home and life you touch. Your world will be impacted by the presence of your home which has taken on the character and heart of the Nazarene.

Know, I am the builder of your home and I will bless the foundation of it. I will make it immovable and strong for I am the Master Builder. All the shifting sands of your life are being eradicated and I am standing you on the Rock (Matthew 16:18). I cut away undesirable and prohibitive factors from your life and family. I have come to anoint each corner of your foundation in order to bring forth a new generation of anointing.

Healing grace abounds over and in you right now to cut generational curses and bring forth healing in all areas. Have patience and behold Me in order to walk through with a hopeful heart (Colossians 3:12).

Prosperity in provision, thought and deed will be the language of each and every household belonging to your linage. Health and wealth will come hand in hand for I bless you in order to bless. All I give you is to be a blessing to others. I will allow you to set foot in the land flowing with milk and honey, and My Name shall be glorified. Yes, a New Nazareth is now rebuilt! The Eden of your life is restored and new generations arise to proclaim the Kingdom.

Prayer of Supplication and Declaration

Lord, I choose to take a risk, to go beyond anything I have ever known and ride the crest of destiny with You. My eyes scan the horizon of my life to see what You are saying and doing. When I hear and see I will ride the wave of agreement and see all You declare come to pass. Dreams of my heart are rising to the surface of the waters of my life and form waves of destiny. I will catch each and every wave and ride it all the way to fruition.

I keep my gaze on You and am not distracted by my weakness but rather I am overwhelmed by Your strength. My heart is a thankful and grateful place full of spontaneous praise. The fountain of my being brings forth sweet water and the old nature is washed away through an obedient heart.

Help me to continue to walk in wisdom gained from the lessons of life. I need to stop and breathe in Your goodness in all things. Your faithfulness throughout my trials and joys is precious to me. I will give verbal assents of gratefulness for all You have done and my heart shall rejoice. You are awesome to behold and I am so thankful for Your encouraging words of love. I choose to believe everything You say about me no matter what I might see in myself on any given day.

I will proclaim who You say I am. I am a bountiful treasure who has a grateful heart in all things. I do not fear nor am I anxious over anything. Your infinite love envelopes me in fathomless folds of never-ending love grace and mercy.

Lord, You are a restorer of all things in the lives of those You have called and love. I open my heart and life up to the fullness of Your restoring and delivering graces. Let the four winds come and blow across every aspect of my life and encompass all the generations of my family.

I declare that the name of the Lord is honored in my home, in my family and all the generations represented. Prosperity in body and soul is in every household from the least to the greatest. Restoration and deliverance have become the fruitful bread of all in my family line. Today my family and I stand on the Rock. All shifting sands are gone. We are passing over the Red Seas of our life into the land flowing with milk and honey with thankful hearts. Eden is restored and Thanksgiving Day is here. Amen

Reflect and Journal

  1. Scan the horizon of your life and see what He is doing. Have you received a Word from Him yet unfulfilled? Sometimes the only thing you have to do to ride the wave of the Word is agree. Agreement is powerful. Sometimes all you have to do is forgive someone to advance. Whatever He tells you to do is what you do. Nothing more and nothing less.
  2. What dreams are in your heart that seems like the biggest wave in all recorded history in comparison to your life and its evident potential?
  3. Reflect on these dreams and let go of any thoughts the enemy might tell you in relation to its possibility. Thoughts like: it is impossible, you aren’t good enough, you don’t have enough money, the Lord will let you fail and so on.
  4. What things have you been distracted by lately? What has the power to pull your gaze from Him?
  5. Have you been trying to dispense bitter and sweet water at the same time? Usually bitter water comes out in critical comments and actions toward others. Confess and repent, then release a blessing on anyone, including yourself, who are recipients of said bitter water.
  6. Once again, take some time to express a thankful heart to the Lord.
  7. Have you been verbally committing your day to the Lord on a regular basis?
  8. Reflect on what it means to verbally confess that you have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts and intents of His heart.
  9. How should this change your response to the trials of life?
  10. Reflect on the trials and joys you have experienced and take time to develop the lessons you have learned from them in a manner beneficial to any future response to like situations or circumstances.
  11. Take some time in a quiet place of worship to music of your choice and meditate on your heart being a treasure chest full of the beautiful and bountiful gifts of the Lord.
  12. When you have taken time to reflect on the treasure you are move on a little further and see Him fashioning you, knitting you with vibrant colors to form a representation of His heart.
  13. Once you have done the above, ask Him to send the wind of the Spirit over you, through you and in you. Receive this by faith and write the Word you hear whispered to your heart.
  14. Take the Word whispered to your heart and proclaim them each day as you arise to serve Him.
  15. What needs the restorative and delivering touch of the Lord in your life or the life of your family? Be specific. List them so you will have something to reference for Prayer and Proclamation.
  16. Proclaim the Lord as Cornerstone and Master Builder of your family. Break all words and agreement with all words of the enemy that says nothing good comes from Nazareth.
  17. Reflect on the healing graces of the Lord and His love which triumphs over judgment. If you have judged yourself or your family in any way, confess, repent and then release His healing graces.
  18. Take time to reflect and then ask Him what the land flowing with milk and honey means to your family. It is different for all because we are all unique. Someone else’s plan will not be your plan. Some aspects of it may work for you but only if He tells you they will. Stand in His presence and He will be more than glad to answer.
