Gebhardt Berndt – January JOY! Article

The Book of Isaiah speaks about restoration (Isaiah 42:22). In this Scripture the word “restore” means to decree and make known, in other words to align your mouth with the Word of God (Heb 4:12). However, God cannot restore if His people do not announce a time of restoration. Satan is the thief and he only comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10), but God wants to bring life and life abundantly! In this year, God is going to restore your health, wealth, joy, relationships, and time! Satan’s time of thievery has run out on the people of God. Even though things in the world will go from bad to worse, the Body of Christ will shine like the sun and have an abundance.
We shall not be touched by the accuser of the brethren as the Lord is our helper, deliverer, and stronghold. Choose today to align your heart, mind, and mouth with the Word of God and decree restoration! Finally, Scripture declares that if the thief has been caught out, he should repay sevenfold that what was taken, now is that time! Now is the time that you must claim back what is yours! By Faith it is done in the Son! 2018 is payback time!
Prayer: Father, thank you that I can decree restoration over all areas of my life, in Jesus’ Name. Thank you that I will see satan paying me back sevenfold that what he has stolen from me, this I receive by faith in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
