The Force Of Full Restoration

6 And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed a certain officer for her, saying, “Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now.”
2 Kings 8:6

23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Joel 2:23-26 (KJV)

The force of your seed is the force of full restoration. Joel prophesied about God restoring unto you all that the locust, cankerworm, caterpillar and palmerworm have eaten. All those insects are different stages of the same insect that eat different parts of the plant. One eats the root, one eats the leaves, another eats the stem and the last one eats everything in sight.

Friend, it does not matter where the damage has taken place, God says, “I will restore.” I would love to prophesy to you today that your restoration is here. It is a done deal in Christ Jesus. Some crisis may have sucked you right from the root. Another crisis may have devoured you right from your stem. Yet another may have devoured your fruit. To them all, God says, “I will restore.”

Growing up as a child, all I knew was poverty and that would have been all I had to give to my children, but thank God, I learnt the seed principle and now my story is different. He restored even the root that had been eaten up and now I am firmly rooted, established in the counsel of the living God and my tree is blossoming, and it has only just begun. If I can say this, you can say it too, for God is no respecter of persons. He shows no partiality (Acts 10:34).

Confession: Father, You are the God of restoration. Today, I prophesy that my full restoration is here, in Jesus’ Name!
