Day 3 of Fasting and Prayer for Spiritual Renewal
20 "And he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him. 21 "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' 22 "But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; 23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.'
Luke 15:20-24 NASB
I have had the wonderful opportunity in my life to restore a lot of things. To take something apart and restore every piece to make it not only look new but also to work like new. God desires to do the same with you if you will allow Him to. Yesterday we talked about the Spiritual war that is going on for your life and the path of destruction it will cause if you let it.
Today is the day to begin a rebuilding
Jesus was laughed at and mocked even on the cross for saying He would rebuild the temple in three days. Those who mocked Him could only see the natural. To be fully restored we need a revelation by God's Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ can fully restore you because He knows what you were like before you were born and through His experience in His life on earth He knows the struggles you face. He has a vision of what you look like fully restored and longs and loves that so much He gave His own life to see that happen.
Are you willing?
Jesus is ready to take every part of you if you are willing and restore it into His image. WHICH IS THE REAL YOU. Your identity in Christ is waiting to shine in this dark world. Jesus Christ went to war with the flesh of man whom He created to create a safe place for you to be healed. (Read Day 2) This is a special and a difficult task. Ask God today to begin the rebuilding phase in your own life by surrendering every thought, emotion and action to Jesus and ask Him to show you the way He sees you fully restored. As you do this God will then ask you to begin to see others the way He sees them. We then can prepare our hearts for action to serve Jesus in helping see others restored.
Are you willing to be trained?
Just as there is training to go to war, there is also training to serve Jesus in helping the restoration process in others. Today I urge you by the grace of God given me to seek out a place of training. Whether God has gifted you to fight on the front lines or to restore others who are wounded in battle the time has come get off of the sidelines and enlist in God's army. There are those who have already answered the call and are at the ready to train and equip you.
Only you can make that move
