Psalm 23:3 “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.”
My beloved, you have had so much to deal with in the last season. And even as you are now emerging you still seem to be stuck in the residue of the hardship, the trial and the testing. I know that it has been difficult. I know how you have had to cry even as you stood warring in shaken faith to apprehend sound and steadfast faith. In you I Am well pleased. In you I take delight to know that even though you have had to endure much, your love for Me has only grown and grown. I know that the devil would have destroyed you but today you still stand wanting more; more of Me, more of My love, more of My freedom, more of My peace, and more of My Kingdom. In this I am truly pleased. Even as you have received My Word of freedom and of Promise the enemy wars with you to the very end. But I say to you today stand firm, stand firm for I Am the Lord your God who will hold your right hand and I say to you fear not for I will help you. Be strong and of good courage. I say it again, fear not, do not be afraid, for I Am the Lord your God and I go with you; I will not fail you and I will never forsake you. Be encouraged and know that you are in a season of restoration and many things will be recovered, reestablished and rebuilt in this time. Let your hope arise, let your heart rest in Me because I am upholding you to keep you strong, steady and secure. You shall know Me like never before, you shall see Me and hear Me in new and spectacular ways and you will be strengthen. I Am restoring all things; I Am restoring your joy, your hope, your peace, your faith and your trust. The enemy has stolen much, but he must give it back 7-fold. No longer will I allow you to be harassed or impaired by your circumstances and situations. I Am giving you new strength and new vigor to continue to press forward. Be energized by My Spirit for with your very own eyes you will now begin to see that I am He who restores your soul. This is My word of promise; renewal, revival, and reestablishment will overtake you in this day, says the Lord.
