A Month of Relocation, Repositioning and Restoration

 
Praise the Lord! I hope you are well and blessed of the Lord. My wife and I are well and continue to give God thanks and praise for His faithfulness towards us. Friend, I hear these words in my spirit… “Relocation”, “Repositioning”, “Restoration”. Get ready for Relocation, Repositioning and Restoration.
 
Relocation
 
We read in Genesis 12:1-3 “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
 
Friend, get ready to relocate. God is going to relocate some of us as He did with Abram. Some of you will relocate far from your country, far from your kindred and far from your father’s house. When He does instruct you this way, do not fear!! The same God declares in Isaiah 43:2, “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” He told Abram that He was taking Him to a land that He will show Him. Do not try to figure out everything, totally rely on Him and He will guide and lead you. He did it with Abram, He will do it with you.
 
Repositioning
 
In 2 Samuel 9:3-4, we read “And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet. And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lodebar.” Jonathan’s son had been forgotten in Lodebar but his position was soon to change.
 
2 Samuel 9:5,7 says “Then king David sent, and fetched him out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lodebar. And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.” Friend, I see your position changing. Get ready for repositioning. Your Lodebars will soon disappear as the King of kings intervenes. Your situation may be looking gloomy but I have news for you – a change is coming and your position is changing. He is the same God that declares in Isaiah 61:3 that He will “give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” Get ready, get ready, get ready!!
 
Restoration
 
God declares in Joel 2:25 “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” Friend, get ready for restoration. The Bible says that everything that the enemy was allowed by God to devour that was yours, get ready for restoration. We read in Job 42:10, “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.” God is going to turn your captivity. Yes, get ready for uncommon restoration.
 
Meditate on these three words and allow God to minister to you. I declare to you that this is your season for Relocation, Repositioning and Restoration.
 
Get ready, get ready, get ready,
 
Remain blessed,
