Repairer of the Breach

Repairer of the Breach

The restoration we have in Christ is such that not only what was lost is brought back, but what was broken is repaired. This is manifested day by day as we are being renewed and restored by the grace of God.

The anointing of the Holy Spirit destroys what is yoked together that should no longer be; and gathers together what should be, but isn’t. So many things have been broken in our lives that often we are unable to find the pieces, but the Lord knows where they are and gently makes us whole. With each breakthrough His riches and His glory increases.

As He puts the broken pieces of our lives back together, peace is restored. What had been held back is released. What was separating us from our purpose is removed. Blocking walls are destroyed, and freedom to move in God is increased. We, then, also become restorers of the breach, bringing the healing of the Lord to the broken lives around us, from glory to glory!  

Isaiah 58:12 “Those from among you shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell in.” 

 

Shift!

Shift!

A man had a war in his mind that was intensifying. The more he tried to control his thoughts, the more they multiplied. He had thoughts of defeat, despair and destruction. He’d lost his job and all he could see ahead of him was additional loss. His mind was telling him, “Next I’m going to lose my house, my wife, and my car. My future is over. I’m a failure and a loser.”

These thoughts were raging in his mind, but as he was ministered to he began to focus on Jesus. Immediately, everything shifted. He knew Jesus was his provider, his helper, and his savior. Whatever he was facing, the Lord was with him and able to deliver him. Despair was replaced with hope. It can be challenging to take negative thoughts captive, but it is achieved as we think on Jesus. Praises start the moment we focus on His goodness, His love, His faithfulness, and all He is as our Lord. As we think on who He is, what He can do becomes clear. We look up when we feel down!

What we find in Him, we can meditate on: things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. We think on things that are above and not beneath. We pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven; that’s where our hearts are and we expect the Kingdom to manifest in greater degree, from glory to glory!

Colossians 3:1-2 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
