I hear the Lord say, ‘I am giving you back what was lost, I am returning to you all that was stolen. Every place you lost reputation, every time you sowed and never seemed to reap. Every time you felt more barren than fruitful, every place you loved and were rejected, every time you hoped and it was delayed.
Now at this time there will be a harvest, now at this time I decree restoration and a returning to you of what you thought would never be returned.’
This is a season of personal harvest and personal recovery from the previous years. This is a reaping time when God’s mercy moves into situations that you couldn’t redeem on your own, He now redeems and restores on your behalf.
Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.
There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.
