Restoration, as Promised by God

Updated on January 25, 2019

RESTORATION, AS PROMISED

DEFINITION

What is RESTORATION? It is the process of "re-branding" and "re-inventing" a thing in order to give it back its lost glory or attention. On the other hand, a PROMISE is a spoken assurance (often with an oath) to someone or a group of persons to do a thing or fulfill a NEED...

THE MESSAGE

Restoration has been promised by the Lord and in the pages of His word, there are many places where His promises are written; however, the problem is that many have not yet taken the time to COME IN CONTACT with His promises for them. They spend 90% of the time "receiving messages" from the Television, Media and all other avenues of false promises and they end up building their hopes on sinking sand. But there are basically 3 stages of receiving the restoration as promised:

(a) GETTING THE PROMISE: Locate the promise that addresses your situation and claim it as your own. Many times we stop only at "IT IS WELL" without looking for the scriptural promise to exactly deal with the situation we face. Are you sick? He said He is the Lord that Healeth us....He said He would bless our bread and our water and take away sickness from our midst. Are you poor? He said He would give us the power to create wealth if we remember Him (Deut. 8:18); Are you troubled and sad and heavy? He said in Matthew 11:28-30 that He will give us rest. What is the situation? Search the Scripture and Locate the promise.

(b) CLAIMING THE PROMISE: In order to claim the promise, we must have a relationship with the PROMISE-MAKER because He is also the PROMISE-KEEPER. If our relationship with Him is non-existent, then He owes us no obligation to keep His promises. Every promise comes with a condition - there is a role we MUST play. Some people hide behind Pastors and refuse to work. They expect the pastors to prophesy over them, believe for them, pay the price for them and generally spoon-feed them. This is not right!

(c) RECEIVING THE PROMISE: Hebrews 11:6 talks about faith and the Chapter is a role call of the WHO IS WHO as regards the practice of their faith. Your name could be added to the list. To receive the promise, believe the promise is yours (written with your name). Personalise it and guard it jealously. Then watch for the manifestation of your expectation earnestly because if we do not watch, we may miss the opening that will lead to the fulfillment of the promise.

May the Lord bless you as you expect the Restoration as He Promised. I love you.
