2010 - A Year of Recovery!
Happy New Year! We thank God who has enabled us enter this great year. We are grateful for what He has done for us; expectant of what He is promising us and humbled by what He is doing with and through us. May His name be forever glorified.
This year, 2010, will be a Year of Recovery. Get Ready! My wife and I are expectant at what God is about to do.
The Bible passage from 1 Samuel 30:18-19 is a mirror of what God is going to do for us this year. We read “And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives. And there was nothing lacking to them, neither small nor great, neither sons nor daughters, neither spoil, nor any thing that they had taken to them: David recovered all.” (The emphasis is mine). We know that the entire Bible is written by God’s Holy Spirit and that every word is important. God could have mentioned that David “recovered all” only once but rather, he mentioned it several times. In other words, God wants us to take careful note of the fact that all was recovered. Friend, you will recall that God gave us this same Bible scripture at the beginning of last year but the emphasis was on “Focus”. This year, His emphasis is on “Recovery”.
The background of the Bible reference above is that, David was hiding from King Saul and had run to the Philistines. David and his men decided to fight with the Philistines against the Amalekites and even gone to the battle-field but the Philistines refused their offer. When David and his men returned to their camp, the Bible says that they found that their wives, children and property taken and their city had been set on fire. David’s own people were so distressed that they even threatened to stone him. David called on God, followed directions and the Bible says that “he recovered all”.
Friend, I do not know what the enemy has stolen from you over the years but I want you to receive this glorious promise, this is your Year of Recovery!. You will recover all! In Jesus Faithful Name, Amen.
To recover is to get back, to rescue, to restore, to regain, to reclaim and to repossess.
To get back
David inquired of the Lord! David pursued as per God’s instructions and David got back everything the enemy had stolen. Friend, in this year of recovery, as you inquire of God, God will give you unique strategies to be able to get back all that the enemy had stolen from you. Broken relationships will be mended this year in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Loved ones that have disappeared and you have not heard from in a long while will be reunited with you in Jesus Mighty name, Amen. Yes, this year you will recover lost homes, lost jobs, lost finances, etc. I see it happening to you in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
There are some people that have been bound by the enemy. Loved ones that have been chained by the enemy. Some in false doctrines and others who have been brain washed etc. This is a year of rescue. God is going to grant us uncommon strategies to rescue loved ones from the grip of satan. Salvation will spring forth in our families! This is the year addictions will be destroyed over our loved ones. The liberating power of Jesus Christ shall be evident in the lives of those that we have been calling on God for in Jesus Powerful Name, Amen. This is the year of Liberty for many!
Friend, Joel 2:25-26 will come to pass this year in our lives. It reads, “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.” This is our portion this Year of Recovery in Jesus Name, Amen. This is the year God will remove our shame. Glory to God! Expect restoration. For those whose savings and other investments have been eaten up, get ready for restoration in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Friend, do not be mistaken and think that your restoration has anything to do with the economy or the world systems. No, your restoration will be by the power of God who is able to bless you in the midst of a global recession. Glory be to God. Be expectant!
For those that are sick, this is God’s glorious promise - Jeremiah 30:17 “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD;…”. May all this come to pass in your life in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
“I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.” Ecclesiastes 10:7. Friend, this error, mistake, anomaly, recorded in Ecclesiastes 10:7 will be reversed in this year of recovery! You and I will regain our rightful positions where God has predestined us to be in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Maybe in your work place things have been done behind the scenes and you have been denied your rightful position – Expect a turn-a-round for good in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In Joshua 14:6-12 We read the story of Caleb. He says “Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart….” He continues to say “lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in. Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; …..” Friend, Caleb was old but did not forget the promise he had received many years before. He reclaimed the promise he received almost forty five years earlier. In this year of recovery, bring God to remembrance. Remind Him of the prophetic utterances that you have received, remind Him of the promises in the Word – Reclaim what God has for you in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
I do not know what the enemy has stolen from you over the years. Is it your time of prayer? Is it your desire to witness? Is it your passion for the Word? Is it your home, your finances, your child, your spouse? This is your time to repossess all in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. I pray that God will release uncommon wisdom for us to step into the repossessing realm. I decree that where non-believers have taken control of vital strategic places, God is going to raise us up to repossess all that we should have had from the very beginning in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
Friend, may God keep you and guide you this year and as the year comes to an end, may your testimony be that you “recovered all” in Jesus Powerful Name, Amen.
Happy New Year,
