This morning I heard the Holy Spirit say “Cry out for restoration! A wave of payback is crashing in upon My people”. There has been intense warfare taking place over the last few weeks and I saw the enemy in so many different ways shouting the same thing over and over to them “Things will NEVER change, they are actually getting worse”
There is a heavy fog of discouragement and despair that had fallen upon many in the area of promise from the Lord. This fog of despair and discouragement has left many with the feeling “this is never going to shift and change, it’s always going to be like this”. I then heard the Holy Spirit whisper again “Cry out for restoration! A wave of payback is crashing in upon My people”.
Zechariah 9:12 resounded loudly “Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double. ”The Lord showed me that not only is He restoring the very area where the enemy has torn things to shreds, held you captive, brought delay, kept you from your breakthrough, but He is going to move you suddenly into a place of DOUBLE what you had before. BE SPECIFIC!!!! I heard the Holy Spirit say “BE SPECIFIC! I CARE ABOUT THE SPECIFICS!”
The sense surrounded me so strongly of the Father’s heart and the Father’s love for His people that He wanted His people to specifically ask for restoration in the LARGE things but also in the SMALL things. He spoke again: “I want to bring radical restoration and increase even to the things My people would think are so small and would be insignificant to Me. They are not insignificant for I am the God that cares for the sparrow that falls to the ground (Matthew 10:29) ”SOME MONUMENTOUS HEART HEALING WILL COME FROM SEEING THE FATHER RESTORE WHAT MAY SEEM “LITTLE”. MONUMENTOUS: big, earth-shattering, earthshaking, eventful, historic, important, major, material, meaningful, monumental, much, significant, substantial, tectonic, weighty. (Google)
The Lord showed me that MAJOR heart healing and hopelessness is going to be healed and broken off lives through the divine restoration and payback He is bringing forth. There will be monumentous healing that will take place in the bigger things, but there will also be SIGNIFICANT healing of the heart that will take place watching the Father restore and upgrade the things that many have thought were just “little” and possibly of no concern to the Father.
When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life’s sweetness will satisfy your soul. (Proverbs 13:12 – TPT)
He is going to demonstrate His extravagant love and the truth that He cares even for the LITTLE things. I heard the Holy Spirit whisper again “You are not going backwards, you are going forwards into PAYBACK!!!!” Friends, don’t be deceived by what your eyes see in the natural. Lift your eyes up higher, for it is payback time. There is a mighty wave of restoration crashing in upon you and the Lord is going to cause you to be stronger, more fruitful and step into greater increase than before.
Many of you will see that what you have walked through in this last season (being the hardest you have walked) is going to be the most powerful place of ministering to others and partnering with the Holy Spirit to see His Kingdom extended. Nothing is wasted. God has you covered. He has His hand upon you. You are being positioned into the land of payback and increase and He will NOT fail you.
Can I encourage you with what I heard Him say? BE SPECIFIC! Write a list down of the promises He has given you and be write down the things you are crying out for restoration in, and include even the things that seem “little” to you, for He is going to POWERFULLY restore them from the big things to the small things. “That’s where he restores and revives my life. He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so that I can bring honor to his name.” (Psalm 23:3 – TPT)
