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.
Let me begin by saying that this is going to be a year of fulfilment. Much of what prophets have spoken will suddenly come to pass and there will be many fulfillments of prophetic words that have been spoken!
The Lord spoke to me and said this would be a year of 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 this season.
“Timothy, my son, the instructions I am giving you are based on what some prophets once said about you. If you will fight like a good soldier.” (1 Timothy CEV)
“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 had been taken captive. David’s greatest battle came before his greatest victory! David could have given up, but he chose to put on the ephod!
3 Put On the Mantle of Prayer
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, but came back with a spoil from their enemies! David shortly after became King of Israel and entered fully into his destiny!
If you have found yourself in a Ziglag 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. Jesus found the lame man at the pool of Bethesda; an angel would come down and stir the water and anyone that got in the pool would be healed. 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.
4. Step into forgiveness
Where God is taking us in the body of Christ requires us to 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 offenses so that the door of bitterness opens. The enemy then has access through an open door to use 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, resentment. I pray that God would bring restoration to your family. I pray 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 heal, and he soared with great strength and peace. Many 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 Cor 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.
Bless you all and Happy New Year,
