Promises of Restoration

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (NIV)

As I sit and reflect on today's blessings, I am thankful to God for allowing me the opportunity to live in this harvest season. After you have weathered a few storms and managed to get through a few disappointments, your faith and strength are increased in God. Each day I awake, I appreciate life and the pursuit of joy and happiness. Unexpected blessings began to appear on this day -- to God be the Glory!!!
Just when you think that life and chance have passed you by, God sends you a promising reminder that the journey is not over but just beginning. Detours, short-comings, delays doesn't mean denies. God was not saying no; He was saying - not now because I have more lessons to teach you.

Jehovah has a way of reminding us that everything works out for our good. (Romans 8:28)
Even though life may become difficult and may seem bleak at times, God is doing some underground work in us so enjoy the down time. When it's time to re-surface, the time and chance will be restored then you become a new creature because the old things have passed away and the new life of the Spirit is upon us. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

We become fresh creatures like a new day of dawn, ready to face the new assignments that has been placed on our destiny road. Each day takes on new heights and new challenges of faith. Each breath of anticipation is no longer uncertain. The passage is clear; the moment is now; the time is ripe for a rich harvest!! If you've sown good things, you'll reap good things therefore, harvest season is here!!

God eventually restores everything one has lost or sacrificed for a specific purpose. God restores everything in His time. He gave back Job all that he'd lost and with interest! Zechariah was given a new life at an old age. The woman with the issue of blood was restored by faith. Noah and his family were protected from the flood and given another chance to start anew. God's plans always work for our good because He wants only the best for his chosen!

I'm extremely encouraged by God's timing in this season of promise and purpose. Yahweh has shown me multi-faceted ways of molding me into the church of excellence, purpose and destiny. I'm pressing on the upward way. God has planted my feet on higher ground. He has lifted me up to let me stand on His promises based on His Inspired Word. I have been fitted for the full armor, praise God, and I will continue to look upward because my help comes from high places in the heavenly realms. To God Be The Glory!

Christians are God's children and He is our Creator. Elohim is more than capable of sizing us up for HIS glory. Let the Most High do it in His time! Be blessed and enjoy your season of restoration!!!
