2015: The Year of Restoration
1 Peter 5:10 (NLT)
10 In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
I have high expectations for 2015.
Actually, I’m declaring a year of restoration. If I had a soap box, I would be standing on it right now. But since I don’t, I’ll stand on my electronic soap box aka my lap top. God has not forgotten you. Were you disappointed by the delays of 2014? I sure was. And it’s OK to be disappointed. It’s OK to want more. It OK to expect more. There is a divine purpose for your life. Your divine purpose keeps you from being 100% satisfied in your current situation. It has kept you from tolerating stagnation. The Holy Spirit is nudging you toward your purpose. I know that you feel it. I know that you want more. I know that you are questioning everything right now. I know that you are ready move forward. In order to move forward, your faith must be ignited.
While you are waiting, God is…
…Preparing your future
…Developing your character
…Exposing your enemies
…Creating new opportunities for you
…Protecting your reputation
…Placing new friendships ahead of you
…Restoring your health
…Bringing new love your way
…Rekindling old love
I hope that my words settle someplace deep within your spirit. You’re a winner. God hasn’t forgotten you. He saw every betrayal. He heard every negative word spoken against your life. He knows about those tears that you have cried. He sees you. He loves you. Now he wants you to know that you are being restored. When God restores you, He improves you. You’ll be better than you were before. Keep believing.
