Pearls of Hope, Inspiration and Encouragement

Gifts and callings

From before the foundations of the world were framed, God already knew what Gift, what Calling He would endow you with, and God is fair and just in His distributions of His anointing.  He knew then and He knows now who will use the gift, who will answer the call and still He blesses His own.  Many have been called, but only few are chosen.  Many have not answered the call, but that does not mean the Call wasn't made.  Even if it takes you another 20 years to decide to answer THAT call, it will still be the same Call He previously made unto you.  God does not make any mistakes.  He knew that long before you became a beep on a monitor that you would lie, cheat, steal, fornicate, have those abortions, go through those divorces, sleep with all those different people, God KNEW you were going to go to jail, and get in trouble over your taxes.  He knew all your mess, and HE called you still, and His calls go unanswered.  God knows about the man in the choir who is a woman for another man on Saturday night, He know about the husband who has several girlfriends, He knows about the woman who secretly lay in the arms of another woman, and STILL He called you.  He called you because He has a plan for your life, a Purpose for you to fullfil, a Prophetic Destiny in where you need to be.  God knew that you were going to go through with employment, and He provided for you, still the call is unanswered.

He gave you a Gift and you won't honor Him with it, you have mistaken your Gift with your talent, but it is still a Gift from God that it's derivatives should evoke a level of praise and glory from your spirit back to the Giver.  God GIFTED you with a voice to sing, to minister and you choose to take that gift to the streets to sing for the world, to the night clubs to sing for the drunkards and the whoremongers, STILL He gave you the Gift, it comes withOUT repentance. 

There is not a sin, not a fault, not a snare in your life, that God didn't see and calculate when He blessed you, because God knew you would go through the dark places in this life, that would leave you to Him, and in those dark places, those other souls you impacted and affected will see HIS glory on you and follow you as you now follow Him.  Everything you went through, your STEPS were ordered to go through there, but all the while, He had you hedged in and protected, the enemy could always come but so far, and still unable to touch you, because GOD had His hand on you. 

You ask yourself, how can God use you after all the MESS you been in, well He takes your mess and gets a message, He takes your TEST and it becomes your testimony, He takes your pain and it becomes LIFE for someone else.  David was an adulterer, but God still anointed him to be king over Israel, Moses was scared and had a speech impediment, but God still chose him to lead millions out of Egypt.  Rahab was a harlot who we find is in the direct blood line of Jesus, Abraham was a liar who became the father of many nations, Sara was a Ms Fix it who almost messed up the plan of God who also is now in the direct line of Jesus Christ.

Man, Woman, Child of God, whatever He has called you to do, rise up to the call and do it,  whatever your gift is, rise up and use it for the glory unto the Lord, because God doesn't make any mistakes, and He will NOT take it back. ~  Be it unto you according to His word.

Jesus, the Anointed One, The man from Galilee, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, He Himself affirmed women in ministry.  Look at His interaction with the Woman at the well.  He told her to go and tell the people in town that the Messiah is here and that He had revealed everything to this woman about herself,  she went to the well as an outcast but left as a delivered Evangelist.  No papers, no license, no ceremony, just a word!  It was improper for the Jews to associate with the Samaritans as it was for a priest to speak to a woman in public.  The woman with the Alabaster Box... showed up intentional and uninvited, but left with a mandate and as a memorial for the duration of all time.
 
Jesus was good about breaking rules, religion and tradition.  You can be religiously wrong all of your life, but it would take a word from the Lord to change the course of your direction.  He has spoken and you have ignored His voice, but grace and mercy is coming again to proclaim victory and a new life for you in Him, the fulness, the anointing, the authority and the power of the believer can be yours, if you would take heed to His voice and stop hardening your heart as did your forefathers in the provocation.  God is not slack concerning His promises, but there will come a time when mercy and grace ends for you, the moment you have breathed your last  breath, don't let it be too late.
 
Women have not ever nor ever will be a spectator, we are participators, we're here to stay, always have been, always will be, close followers of Christ.  These are the last days and He is pouring out His spirit upon all His son's and daughters, never did He stop to ask for your opinion or for you to vote on what He has already said long before you got here to your local assembly.  So whether you are single or divorced, black or white, Gentile or Jew that is a call and work for you to do.  Just do it!

(1:22am) I can't sleep, just went to bed at 11:30pm.  Need to spend some quality time with God in the Word, You are on my mind.  Ps. 59:16 "But I will sing of Your power; Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning.  For You have been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble:"  He will send someone to sing the songs your heart longs to hear, need to hear.  He will send a  strong arm to wrap around your weary body and give you a moment of rest and recluse, a taste of tranquility.  At the end of the setbacks, betrayals, delays, denials....morning emerges again, you are still here.  Do not lose hope, I know it seems like it is almost all gone, but hold onto what little hope you have left and wait for God to be magnified.  Overcome obstacles with confidence, rise above trauma with triumph.  Feel solace through sorrow.  Know God's comfort in the midst of crisis'.  Ps. 27:13, "I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."  Don't die, daughter, don't die son!  Cry if you will but don't die.  There's a reason you feel the way you do, just as there is a blessing designed intricately, intimately just for you, that is far better than anything you've ever experienced.  I Am a restorer!  Out of sight, out of mind, out of heart.  It takes  trust, when you don't see Me, hear Me, or understand Me, trust Me!  The foundation of any solid relationship is trust.  The real test of trust is sharing your secrets with Me, your inner fears and frailties.  How quickly we grow weary of people who demand that we constantly  explain ourselves.  Oh to be with one who can understand the meaning of a touch, a hug, a sigh in the stillness of the moment.  Real communion is not taught, it has to be understood.  Words are unnecessary when there is true genuine understanding.
 
Songs of Solomon 1:2 "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth.  For your love is better than wine."  You are greater than your past, you are alive!  You are loved, you are still here!  You have been touched, blessed, kissed!  His kiss shields you, keeping you safe and secure.  His arms never fail in strength and might.  Mornings are for the hopeful not the remorseful.  It is an expectation of what is to come.  SOS 7:10 "I am my Beloved's and his  desire is toward me."  Time for passion to return back, arise!  Matthew 5:11-12 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."  No more feelings of a trembling, bleeding, weeping mass of pain!  No more feeling unwanted, unloved, unneeded, you have Value, Virtue, Vision.  You can't shout over rejection, but you can shout through it!  You can't leap over the wall, but you can speak to it.  Rejection stole your value, your virtue, your vision, grace and glory gives it back.  Torn, trembling, wounded, wanting, waiting---STAND!

 

 

Driving down the highway today in rush hour traffic:

The Lord began to minister to me, just thought you'd like to know what He had to say. Now you must understand, when He began to speak to my heart, tears began to fall, so glad that today the traffic was not as heavy as it usually is:

He said that I AM getting you ready. Everything that you are going through my child is according to MY plan. I AM the Lord God, see, I change not. When you don't hear MY voice, I want you to trust MY plan. Take MY word, take it one step at a time, you feel like giving up? I know you do, but trust MY plan, I AM the Lord, I see, I understand, I have a plan. MY plan is to prosper you, give you hope, give you a future. I hear you, I see you, I care, I feel what you feel. I know what you are going through. I AM the Lord God, I change not. One more step, one more breath, one more day. You are no stranger, you are MY child. Preparations that you go through are for you, for ME. The times when you feel all alone and those times when you are alone, remember, I will always be there, because I see, I hear, I care! I AM the Lord God, I change not. I formed the world, you and every thing that exist. Every test, trial, struggle and storm, I direct! I won't leave you, I AM the Lord God. Can't you hear ME softly calling you, wiping the tears from your eyes, I AM the Lord God, I AM never far from your side. As I opened the red sea for Moses and the children of Israel, I have performed for you as well, MY child if you would look back over that last ordeal you went through, yes, that one, remember how I brought you out of it, through it and now you don't even remember it, I AM the same God that will deliver you again. I AM unlike lovers of your yesterday, that claim to love you, walk away leaving you with tears in your eyes, your feet on the floor and your back against the wall, I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD! I WILL NEVER EVER LEAVE YOU, NOR FORSAKE YOU. I WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS. No place you can run nor can you hide from ME, I died so that I could have You with me throughout eternity. I AM just getting you ready for what I have had planned for you since the foundations of the world. Trust me, I understand, I know, I care.......GOD.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Yesterday ended last night, you don't need to cry anymore over that, pick your head up, pick your pride up. So what they want to go, open the door, and bid that problem good-bye. God paid too much of a price for you to be crying, fretting and snotting over someone that don't want to be a part of your life. Learn the art of the Gift of Goodbye.

You have the ability to get your smile, your joy, your peace, your anointing, your money--BACK! You were created to prosper in every area of your life. 3 John 2. You can begin again, by looking up and looking within. Look up unto the hills from whence cometh your help, because all your help, your hope, your healing, your everything comes from God, then look within, within who you are, because before the worlds were formed, and your great grand-daddy met your great grand-mama He imparted what you would need deep down inside of you. Man of God, there is a king on the inside of you, woman of God, there is a queen on the inside of you. Walk like, look like, act like royalty, because that's who you are. 1 Peter 3:9. You were born for "this". Walk in peace, live in peace, rest in the peace of God, which passes all understanding. Stop trying to figure it out or justify someone's action toward you. A piece of a friend is not sufficient enough for a friend, you are worth more than that. You don't have to settle for a piece of nothing! Jesus came that you might have life and have it more abundantly.

Tell that problem bye-bye!

Enjoy the rest of the day, the one that the Lord has made, may as well rejoice in in too.Image

Your gifts go before you

Your gift will make room for you and set you before great men, you do not need to blow your own horn or try to make your name great. If you live like Jesus told you and do what Jesus told you, He said He would make your name great. Even the Savior Himself, Jesus, had John the Baptist point out to Him, as well as Judas, He made no reputation of Himself. He took the low seat so that you could be exalted. It is when your flesh die that God raises you up. So look around and see who is pointing a finger in your direction, is it someone who makes you leap in your spirit or someone who is pointing you out to the one set for the crucifixion?
What are you doing with the gift that God has given to you? Are you using it to glorify Him or yourself? Does what you do edify or irritate? Lift up or tear down the spirit of another, wound or bring healing? Are your words seasoned? Is your daily walk and conversation pointing to Christ or to you?
I beg you in the love of God to pray for the one that is self made, self exalted and self centered that the mercy and grace of God would cover then and deliverance comes before the fall, pray for the spirit of pride to be delivered from the body of Christ. Silence is Wisdom, just listen to the conversation of your coworkers, your fellow sisters and brothers, and excuse yourself to pray. Pride, envy, jealousy and strife are being manifested and the real you is under attack because some one has allowed the enemy to come in and disrupt your spirit because God is blessing you and they go stagnant, well if they did what you did, they can get what you got. And in the event that you fall, recover quickly, dust yourself off, and get on being about the Fathers business.  Keep going. Keep your eyes on the prize. Know what God called you to do. Know the promises of God.            Claim the promises of God. Walk in your authority. Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called. Set the example. Be who you say you are.         Donít let the devil derail you.                                                                                         YOU ARE A MIGHTY CONQUEROR!

It's not your fault

Your God is a God of Comfort, Peace, Hope and Love.

Woman of God, Man of God, that trouble that you went through that you keep blaiming yourself for, allow me to share a word of revelation with you. IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT. The divorce, the adultery, the fornication, the childhood abuse, the abortion that someone made you have, that spot on your liver, the knot in your breast. You can't keep blaming yourself. Because that person rejected you and chose someone else, it is no doubt going to work out for your good, oh, I understand the pains of rejection in wanting relationship with someone that don't want you, you have more questions than answers, more tears than tissue, you probably will never know why your mama ran off, or why your daddy wasn't around, You may never find out why your uncle touched you in hidden places, but allow me please my sister, my brother to encourage you, lift up your head and walk worthy of the call on your life. Jesus has not rejected you, He promised to be there even to the end. He'll never walk out on you, abandon you, desert or divorce you. He is faithful to you, there is no misunderstanding in His love towards you, He proved His love in His death, even moreso in His resurrection, because He wasn't done blessing you, He had to do what He did, to give you the Comforter, something to hold you and wipe the tears from your eyes, so what if your husband ran off with the church clerk or your wife left you to raise the kids for a man younger than you, thinner than you, got more hair than you, guess what?....God has not left you, and He says to you, it's not your fault. Come out of that depression and realize that the greater one lives in you and with you. He says to you, behold I stand at the door and knock, let me in, all the guilt, the sorrow, the sadness, the shame, the pain, the pressure, the past, the fear you will know it no more, just open the door. Do like I did my child and ask Our Father, to forgive them, for they know not what they do, just remember when you ask Him, ask in my name. My name is Jesus, I love you so much, if I could I would die again, just for you, my precious jewel.

2Co 1:3 ∂ Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

1Th 5:23 ∂ And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ro 15:13 ∂ Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

2Co 13:11 ∂ Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

 

The Winds of Revival

Ps 85:6-10 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? 7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 8 ∂ I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. 9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. 10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

The winds of Revival are about to blow in the land, not just in America, but in Africa, Russia, China, Korea, Kuwait, Pakistan, Indonesia, and even to the uttermost remote areas of the world, places that yet not exist to a map, but I KNOW the souls that are there, the times of refreshing, renewal, revival are upon you, the times for My Chosen to be ready to die for the cause, the time for My Chosen Ones to cry loud and spare not, to take up a wailing, to fast and pray, make intercessions on behalf of those that are lost in sin, those that are following an illusion, false gods and false religions. I will not be undone, this revival calls for holiness, for holiness without shall no man see God. There is no place to hide when the winds begin to blow, Saints of the Most High God, be in place, be armed with the weapons of your warfare, be ready to perform swift deliverance from those that will heed to the blowing of the wind. Stand firm, stand strong, stand in the power of MY might, STAND. You must pray, you must fast for the revival that is coming, many false prophets will be released and if not firmly planted will uproot many of the My disciples, but I have prayed for you that you STAND. As these winds begin to blow, houses that once were suppose to be the House of Prayer, will be emptied, souls will be running due to the wind that I command, looking for the truth, YOU, my prophet, my priest, my people must stand on My spoken Word and be not swayed by heresay, gainsay, but rather what I say. As My winds begin to blow I will speak a Rhema word to You, my chosen one which will change the nations. Get ready to receive.....the coming harvest.

Hidden Treasures

Mt 13:44-49 ∂ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just.

Hidden Treasures: A thing of highly-estimated value. The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hid in a field. The kingdom of God within us is a treasure indeed, but a treasure hid from the world, and from the most wise and prudent in it. He that finds this treasure, (perhaps when he thought it far from him,) hides it deep in his heart, and gives up all other happiness for it.

You are as that hidden treasure of high value, God thought enough of you to purchase you and hid you until an appointed time, that time is now. The time of the unveiling of the hidden treasures. God has deposited treasures within the hearts of His Women and His Men, those that are not fearful nor timid, but are bold and courageous. Those that know the value of what has been deposited and what price was paid for it. The purchase price was none other than the blood of the Lamb.

Child of God, I SEE YOU AS A HIDDEN TREASURE, SOMEWHAT LIKE A PIECE OF STRAWBERRY CANDY WRAPPED DELICATELY IN A THIN PIECE OF TRANSPARENT PAPER, ONLY TO REVEAL A HARD COVERING ONCE REMOVED transparent because God wants your life to be an open book, nothing broken, missing or ashamed, you're life has to be a living demonstration of who you were, you are no more and to reveal the amazing power of God's grace in the life of an undone wretch, BUT WITHIN TIME, ONCE THE OUTER CORE TO THE CANDY HAS BEEN REMOVED,(PURGED) THERE IS A TREASURE HIDDEN WITHIN, (THE CHOCOLATE). TREASURES HIDDEN SOON TO BE REVEALED. JUST LIKE THE CANDY, GOD HAS PLACED SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE OF YOU WOMAN OF GOD, MAN OF GOD THAT HAS TO BE REVEALED. FROM THE OUTSIDE, YOU APPEAR TO BE NORMAL, JUST LIKE THE OTHERS, BUT HE HAS PLACED SOMETHING ON THE INSIDE OF YOU THAT IS TO BE DESIRED. OH TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD, AND THAT HIS MERCY ENDURES TO ALL.

NOT ALL WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TASTE OF THE LORD'S GOODNESS BECAUSE OF THEIR REJECTIONS TOWARDS HIM, BUT TO YOU HE SAYS, HE WILL WITHHOLD NO GOOD THING FROM YOU. NOW IS THE TIME FOR THAT WHICH IS HIDDEN TO BE REVEALED, THAT WHICH IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN, BEHIND THE SHADOW, TO COME TO THE FOREFRONT. AWAKE, ARISE, ARRIVE TO YOUR NEXT DIMENTENTIAL BLESSING.

The Return of Holiness

Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled

Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. {true...: or, holiness of truth}

During these last few moments known left to mankind, God is calling for His chosen generation to Return to Holiness, do not be deceived my beloved, Holiness is not what you wear, holiness is who you are. Holiness is a lifestyle. It's not what you put on, it's what you have taken off. You have taken off malice, anger, bitterness, jealousy... you have taken on the nature of Christ. You have chosen to live a different life that other "church goers", you don't go to church to look for a hook up or a connection, you go because you love GOD. Motivation, education, inspiration is good, but God is calling for the return of Holiness, for you to look like, act like, talk like, live like, HIM. Religion says I'm right with God because I go to church, pay tithes, don't smoke, chew or hang with anyone who do. Religion says, I love you when you see me, but holiness says, I love you because GOD sees me, Holiness is not in my clothes it's in my character. Holiness teaches me how to live in front of a Holy God. Even if I do know someone who smoke and chew, holiness says I still love you.

Holiness is an active desire to please your God by how you treat your temple, which is the house of the holy ghost. Because His spirit dwells in your body, you don't treat it any kind of way with harmful substances and/or activities.

Holiness is in the mere fact that who I am, what I do, what I wear or don't wear reflects who I am immulating.

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. GOD!

If and Then

We serve a God who has a love that is unconditional, unchanging and unfailing towards you.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever, He changes not.  As we strive to put our lives back together and aid in the lives of those deeply devasted by the recent hurricanes, the Father continues to speak with a voice of power, thriumph and anointing.  I don't believe that anyone with a heartbeat has not been affected in one way or another by Katrina or Rita.  Whatever you lost, it brought about some form of devastation to you.  I lost income for a few days, with the bills mounting high, to me that was lost and devastation, but God.  He is saying that "If my people, who are called by my name, would humble themselves and pray, seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."  2 Chronicles 7:14  We as a nation, have got to return back to our first love.  Catastrophe after catastrophe God is calling for His people to humble down and pray, seek His face, not His hands, not what He has on the thousand hills, not what He has in reserve in silver and gold, but seek His face, (David said, thy face Lord will I seek, Psalms 27:8, he was an adulterer and a murderer, yet a man after God's heart and one who won His affection with his exuberant praise and worship), and knowing and believing that if He (God) don't do anything else, dying on the cross for your sin was enough.  It is then and only then, that God  will hear, forgive and heal the land.  Making Him the God of "if" and "then".  There are conditions to be met, God is not going to change to accommodate this nation, we must change.  We cannot be fearful and timid, there is a place for those people, see Revelation 22:8.  We have to "wake up" from the "shaking" that just took place, because there is a call to "get up", cause we have got to "go up".  Jesus is about to crack the Eastern sky and every eye will see Him, at that time it will be too late for the unbeliever.  But good news for YOU, His child, He's coming with His reward with Him.  Don't fret over what you've lost, you are about to be restored everything that the locust, the palmerworm, the cankerworm and the caterpillar stole from you, all I can say is, get ready, get ready, get ready.  It's about to reign blessings on the children of God who will humble themselves, pray, seek His face and turn from their way.  I know you will be one to receive at that time.  Don't give up, cave in or quit.    HOLD ON!

I will restore

On July 6, 2005, God spoke to me and said: I am going to restore your value, your vision, your virtue.

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. 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. 27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

Jer 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

I am going to restore to you....everything, and the time that the devil stole. I am going to restore your value, your vision and your virtue. And on the 3rd day, I will raise you up. I am going to restore to you your value, your self esteem, your sense of pride. I'm going to restore you to you, to who you are. You are peculiar, chosen, called, held, kept. You are a treasure, a precious jewel. Your price is far above rubies, no one can redeem you, nor pay the price for you that I've paid. I paid with My blood. You are somebody, you are special. I am going to restore your dignity, your respect. I am going to restore your laughter, your peace, your anointing. I am going to restore your name, your family, your marriage, your business. I am going to restore your beauty and blow away your ashes.

I am going to restore your vision, your hopes, your dreams. Those things that use to keep you awake at night, those things that you use to go to sleep and wake up to on your mind. Those things you saw yourself doing in Me, for Me, thru Me. I am going to restore! The vision is not destroyed or denied, just been delayed. That which has been delayed will soon be released. Not only your vision, but just like the five fold ministry gifts. I am going to restore vision, hearing, touch, smell and taste.

I will restore vision so that you will see the place and go as I lead and instruct you. I will restore hearing so that you will know what my spirit is saying to you, prompting you to obey. I will restore your touch, so that you can exhibit and display empathy and sympathy. So that you can reach out and touch the wounded and the wounder, you can touch the broke down, the castdown and the brokenhearted. You can touch the one who's mind is going wayward. You can touch the lonely, the homeless, the hopeless. You can touch the pimp and the prostitute, the whore and the whoremonger, the abused and the abuser. I will restore your touch, but before I restore your touch, I HAVE TO restore your vision, you have to see yourself doing it.

I will restore your smell, so that you can let my people know that life is a bed of roses, if they would not focus on the pain of the thorns and just smell the roses that they would see that life is good. I will restore your smell, so that when you are in the midst of my people the smell of the anointing will arise and permeate their being. I will restore your smell and you will know that I am the Rose of Sharon and the Lily in the valley, that no matter how deep you go in the valley, that I am there, I can be smelled.

I am going to restore your taste. You will once again taste and see just how good I am. You will taste bitter that will turn to sweet. You will once again taste the kiss of my touch everyday that I open your eyes. You will taste again my love, like the fragrance of an early morning rain.

Then my child, I am going to restore your virtue, your strength, your power will be returned to you sevenfold. You left empty, depleted and distraught, but I am going to bring you back to fruition and fullness. I am going to restore the power to you for you to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. The power to speak peace to the storms that are raging and watch them subside. I am going to restore the power in your hand to lay on your own head and decree a thing, power to get up and go get wealth, power to prosper, becoming complete, whole, lacking nothing. Nothing missing, nothing broken. I am going to restore your strength so that you can mount up on wings like an eagle. So that you can run and not grow weary, you can walk and not faint. Strength to get up and rise above the problem, the pain, the past. Strength to get up and get on with your life. Strength to work the work, to answer the call.

Here are some witnesses who can testify that I will restore:

Abraham, David, Hosea, Ezekiel, Job and his wife, Naomi, Ruth, Leah, Hannah, Esther, Hagar, Paul and Silas, the woman with the issue of blood, the woman with the alabaster box, the woman caught in the act of adultery, Joel....

 

Then on July 7, 2005, God spoke to me again concerning restoration.

Jer 30:16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey. 17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. 18 ∂ Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. {heap: or, little hill} 19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. 20 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.

I will restore unto you the joy of thy salvation. Ps. 51:12

I will restore your soul back to a place of peace, calmness, serenity. Ps. 23:3

So whether it is a snake, caterpillar, cankerworm, palmerworm or locust, know this, the enemy is out to destroy you. Worms get in apples, peaches, pears, tomatoes, flowers, crop fields, then it is good for nothing. Watch the worms, they are destroyers, ask Pharoah.
