I believe God is going to bring the past and the future into the present for you.
Joel 2:23-26 (Read).“Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the Lord your God! For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains (former rain) will come, as well as the rains of spring.” (Later rain). 26 “…… and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced.”
The Lord of mercy who is abundant in grace is fully able to recompense you. “I will restore to you said the Lord”!
The former rains came around Oct.-Dec. to prepare the seed-bed and assist germination, while the latter rains came during Mar-May to provide ample moisture for the grain and fruit crops in abundant. The former (the past) situation has been reversed.
· It means the past is brought into the future.
Now! How can we bring the future into the present?
John 2:4 “Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.”” (The future).
My hour has not yet come, period. Jesus did not stop there but brought His future hour into the present by turning “water into wine”.
I believe we will get back what we have lost with interest.
· Who said you cannot get back what you've lost 17 years ago?
· Who said you cannot regain the past grace, the past opportunity and lost glory?!
Unlimited success that brings what you lost in the past plus what God has in store for you in the future and bring them into your present for your enjoyment and for His Glory. The Lord said in V26 “…. and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced.”
I am excited about what God is going to unfold this year for us. I can see it and I’m walking towards it in Jesus Name. Amen.
Be blessed my friend and have a great New Year filled with God’s favor.
