Carol Kelley: 2010—A Year of Restoration
by Carol Kelley
Jan 10, 2010
In early November 2009 the Lord told me, “2010 will be a year of restoration.” Restoration of what has previously been lost will come about on many levels, both for individual Believers and the Church worldwide. Watch expectantly for God’s restoration and increase to take place during the coming months in relationships, health, faith, families and finances. Have you given up hope that the Lord would fulfill a dream or vision He has given you? Look to Him to restore, revive and bring to pass dreams that have died, been lost, abandoned or broken.
Throughout the fall and early winter of 2009, the Lord has spoken to me no less than 70 times about restoration. Here is a summary of what He said:
“I have plans for double restoration! There has been much testing, but there will be restoration. I am keeping hope alive in you. I am redeeming time and relationships; I am building and preparing. I am the Lord; is anything too difficult for Me? (Jeremiah 32:27)
“Have complete faith in Me. I am giving you grace; I am redeeming situations for My purposes. Restoration is coming; believe My promises! Yes, restoration of relationships is coming. I will open doors; you will see My promises come to pass! Fuller revelation is coming, as well as the fulfillment of every promise.
“I will bring restoration; don’t give up hope! I can still redeem your situations. Hang in there during these transitions; things are almost there! Yes, this has been a time of testing, but also of redemption, grace and mercy. This testing will end in victory! Keep praying, believing, and looking to Me. Receive and walk in My grace and rest.”
“I Have Plans for Full Restoration—Don’t Retreat!”
Then on New Year’s Eve, the Lord said to me:
“Don’t give up during this time prior to increase and full restoration. I will give you a full measure of My blessing.
“Rest in Me (Psalm 37:7); don’t fret because of the wrongs others are doing (Psalm 37:1). Trust in Me and continue doing good (Psalm 37:3). Don’t retreat; continue to stand firm, rooted in Me. Continue your acts of faithfulness.
“Delight yourself in Me. I know the desires of your heart, and will honor them (Psalm 37:4). Commit your way to me; trust in Me (Psalm 37:5). I will act on your behalf. I will vindicate your trust in Me and your faithfulness (Psalm 37:6).
“Learn to rest in Me, learn to wait patiently for Me (Psalm 37:7), learn to not worry. Trusting Me doesn’t always come easily for you. I know and understand this, and am working with you to help your faith grow. I don’t condemn you for your struggles, but I am calling you forth to a new level of faith. I have proved My faithfulness to you over and over, and am inviting you to trust Me in a new way.
“Don’t give up hope! I know the desires of your heart, and am at work. I am giving you grace and mercy in your time of need (Hebrews 4:16). Full restoration is coming, and My glory will be revealed in this process. Never, never, never give up! I will keep My promises to have testing end in victory. Do not be discouraged during these trials; they will end in victory. I have plans for full restoration!
“I am working things together for your good (Romans 8:28). I am having mercy on you; My love for you is everlasting (Jeremiah 31:3). I will never fail you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6, 8; Joshua 1:5; Hebrews 13:5). I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20).”
