Let me begin by saying that this is going to be a year of fulfillment. Much of what the prophets have spoken will suddenly come to pass, and there will be many fulfillments of prophetic words that have been spoken!
The word in my spirit for 2021 is restoration! I have prayed throughout this year and this is what the Lord has been speaking to me: This will be a year of divine restoration.
This will be the year that God is going to revive you, resurrect you, realign you, and cause you to recover all! In this word I have listed some keys that will help prepare you for this year. I truly believe this is the Lord's heart for this season.
1. War Over Prophecies
Many times when we receive a promise from the Lord, whether it be a promise in His Word or a personal promise the Lord speaks to us with the desire to bless us, there is warfare that comes with that promise. The enemy often tries to discourage, distract, and make us feel hopeless because he knows that if we continue to trust God, we will see tremendous breakthrough.
What we see in the natural world can look contrary to what the Lord has spoken to us. This is why Paul told his son in the faith, Timothy, to war over his prophecies!
"Timothy, my son, the instructions I am giving you are based on what some prophets once said about you. If you follow these instructions, you will fight like a good soldier." (1 Timothy 1:18 CEV)
2. Put on the Mantle of Prayer - Your Active Faith Will Recover All
David was given a word about his destiny. It wasn't until he was thirty that he saw the fulfillment of the promise that God gave him from the prophet Samuel. Before David entered into the promise, he had to war over the prophetic word. Just before David became king of Israel, he endured one of his greatest battles. (Photo via Piqsels)
"And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire." (1 Samuel 30:1 KJV)
When David and his mighty men returned from war, they found their village burned and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. David's greatest battle came before his greatest victory! David could have given up, but instead he asked the priest to bring out the ephod!
The ephod was a garment that only the priests could wear. I believe the ephod represents the mantle of prayer.
David sought the Lord, and the Lord said, "Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all." (1 Samuel 30:8 NKJV)
David and his men not only recovered all, they came back with the spoils of their enemies! David, shortly after, became king of Israel and entered fully into his destiny!
If you have found yourself in a Ziklag season, know that prayer is the key to seeing the breakthrough!
God is releasing restoration in 2021! He is bringing an increase in finances where the enemy has tried to steal from Believers, and He is bringing healing to families. Everything that the enemy stole from you will be returned. I see heavenly strategies being released to enable you to recover all! New businesses will be birthed through the blueprint of Heaven!
3. Have the Willingness to Be Made Whole
Our heavenly father deeply desires for each of us to be made whole. The Bible tells us that an angel would come down and stir the water in the pool of Bethesda, and the first person that got in the pool, after the water had been stirred, would be healed. Jesus found a lame man there who had never been able to make it to the pool on time when the water was stirred. Jesus asked the lame man a question, "Do you want to get well?"
I believe the Lord is asking us the same question: "Do you want to get well?" Jesus desires for us to be well, healed, whole—not only physically healed, but healed and whole in our souls as well. (Photo via Pixy.org)
4. Step into Forgiveness
Where God is taking us as the Body of Christ requires that we walk in forgiveness. Entering into forgiveness causes us to be free from the pain of the past and free from offense. The Lord asks us to forgive because there is a blessing in forgiveness. The enemy wants to bring offense so that the door of bitterness opens; this then gives him access to use this open door against us.
If this has been your battle and you have struggled to enter into forgiveness, I pray that a wave of healing would come and that God's presence would release you from the burden of hurt, bitterness, and resentment. I pray that God would bring restoration to your family. I pray that God would release restoration to your heart, in Jesus' name!
5. Restoration of the Office of the Prophet
The Lord gave me a dream recently about an eagle that had a broken wing. I then saw the eagle healed, and he soared with great strength and peace. Many people have endured attacks from the enemy and have been wounded. What the Lord was showing me through this dream is that He is going to bring restoration to His eagles, the prophets.
I want to encourage you to pray for leaders this season. It's so important as a prophetic voice to be healed and remain pure, as God's word goes forth from the prophets. When prophets heal, it is healthy for the Body of Christ. We are all one Body and are all connected.
"Whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all members rejoice with it." (1 Corinthians 12:26 KJV)
Our hope and mandate as Believers is the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21)! This is the heart of the Father for America and for the nations of the world: that we would see the Kingdom of God come and bring true transformation and restoration.
