Feeling Robbed and plundered over the years?
Has the canker-worm been weakening your strength, ( canker-worms weaken the tree to wear it down and wear it out).
Did the locust swarm around you ( you know those that swarm around you to wear you out with negativity), (that is what locust do they swarm and control)
Has the caterpillar come in like a eating machine, eating up all your resources, or did the palmer-worm suddenly appear, to catch you off guard wanting to knock you down. Palmer-worms suddenly appear and gather in great numbers.
The Lord promises Restoration.
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. Joel 2:25
But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore. Isaiah 42:22
If this is you then yell “Restore”!
2015 is the year of restoration. The number 15 means rest.
In 2014, I had several dreams of my parents house. My father died in 2012 and my mom is in a nursing home with dementia, so I thought it odd that I would be having dreams of their home now almost three years later. I had cared for both of them through 2008-2012. I moved my family in, to care for my parents twenty-four hours seven days a weak, it was one of the toughest jobs the Lord handed me. I felt like I was in a pit, a prisoner in a house. Two dementia patients neither one of them got along with each-other and I was the middle guard wrestling the flesh of others, and the principalities that would come fill the house. But God kept me strong I made it through!
In the dreams my father who died was fixing up the house first he was sweeping it. Then some time later I had another dream about my father painting the walls, and they gleamed brightly. I had another dream where there was scaffolding in the house and my dad was building a big pantry in the house, in all these dreams I was observing.
What I know:
My father in the dream was father God fixing it up, restoring the house. My parents house is 100 years old and it was worn down in the natural. I knew the whole dream was about what the Lord is doing restoring years.
My father is in heaven and my mom accepted the Lord before she went into the nursing home, there was victory, and for me it was a rescue mission.
Why three years later do I dream of all this, because I believe its time now to restore years.
I looked up scriptures that pertain to restoring, and its exciting…Yell Restore!
What is to be restored:
And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes.
Deuteronomy 30 3-13
Then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion upon you.
I will restore the fortunes of my people.
For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord.
He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
What does the Lord Restore:
Health and healing
Quickens your life and leads you into righteousness
Restores you Joy
