I heard the voice of the Lord talking to my heart saying, “Rapid restoration; I am who I am, and I am still in the business of restoration!” Deeply, I sensed that this word is for those who are in a dark valley, in a valley of DISASTER, DEBT, DESPAIR and DESOLATION. Listen — “I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you” (Joel 2:25). Listen — we have entered into a season of “suddenlies,” a season where the Spirit of the Living God is moving mightily among His warriors, and “rapid restoration” of what was lost will allow YOU to go on after an INTERRUPTION, and accomplish your God-given task you set out to do.
All your unproductive, unfruitful, devastating and disastrous years are lost years, “your locust years” — years that the swarming locusts have eaten. But “an alarm has sounded” — let His word thrill you and keep praising the Lord, the “Rapid Restorer,” who looks down from heaven.
“Rapid restoration; I am who I am, and I am still in the business of restoration!” Stand firm and hold your position. I am seeing the mighty hand of the Lord do wondrous things in the body of Christ, nations, individuals and ministries. I am seeing salvation within households; I am seeing many believers advancing careers, expanding businesses, debt-free, enlarging ministries, occupying lands and fulfilling their God-given destinies. Listen — not everyone is going to be thrilled about you — but God is! Stand firm and keep declaring His Word — you are yet to experience His unparalleled goodness!
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand” (Joel 2:1). The Lord is answering the cries of His mighty warriors — get ready to march forward, advance and “take possession of the enemy’s land!” (Deuteronomy 2:31)
