At the start of 2016, Apostle Emmanuel Maiyaki shared an uplifting word from God that this year will be the year of His restoration.
If you have lost something or a relationship precious to you, or feel like the locusts have consumed your years; if you’ve suffered from a debilitating illness that has robbed you of good health or stolen your youth, let the word of the Lord strengthen your heart today. Our God is a God of restoration, and He is most able and willing to restore whatever you have lost! Whatever the enemy or circumstances may have taken from you, whether openly or secretly, God wants to restore to you so that the glory redounds to His name and to the power of His Son’s finished work.
My dear friend, when God restores something, He doesn’t just restore it to its original condition—His restoration is always greater in quality or quantity or both. Time and again, we see this principle in the scriptures (see Exodus 22:1). Today, God wants you to arise in faith and to say to Him, “Father, restore!” and then, to rest in Him to bring about His much-more restoration of years lost, His renewal of your mind and body, and a deeper relationship with Him.
Beloved, this year, may you experience an unprecedented manifestation of His restoration in every area of your life, and may His great grace, profound peace and divine protection superabound toward you and your loved ones.
