Malachi 3:6 KJV
“..I am the Lord , I change not…..”
Hebrews 13:8 KJV
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”
God has always been, still is and will always be a miracle working God. He never changes.
Miracles await you even today in Christ. Once you are a child of God through Christ Jesus, You are the object of Divine favor and God surrounds you with favor as with a shield.
He is the same - yesterday, today and forever. God is NO respecter of persons but He is a respecter of faith. What He has done in times past in terms of miracles, signs, wonders and great deliverance, God is ever ready to do again.
Just make your determination to align yourself perfectly into the critical path that leads to where all Sons find their place of service to God. Forget all about the challenges that are obviously bigger than you. Roll it over to the one who can solve them and simply become sold out to service. Nothing cures self focus and self - centeredness like service.
The kingdom of God surrounds you. The kingdom follows you and goes before you.
Abandon all self-promotion ideas. Never allow the ego-driven attitudes that have NEVER reflected Grace to be found in your behavior. As you chose to serve, God will bring you into the entitlement of sons. Sonship rights and benefits are manifested through service.
May God reveal to you this day what the POWER to BECOME a son implies in every area of your life. It requires that you push yourself into God until it is all of Him and none of you.
As you do this, you’ll discover that in the end, you not only receive but you become a miracle yourself.

IT’S RESTORATION TIME AND SEASON
Zechariah 9:12 ESV
Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.
Do you seem to be losing hope and faith in the promises received? Does your confidence in Christ seem to ebb? Does it look like there’s no way out? Does it feel like you’re trapped in a dry pit without water?
In our text above, God is asking you to return and put your confidence back in Christ your strong hold. Make Hope come alive again in your heart.
The Hebrew word used for “Stronghold” here is in reference to a fortress of protection. Jesus is our fortress of protection. As you turn back to HIM in Hope, God promises to doubly compensate you for all your trouble.
He promises rapid relief from every situation of lack. You shall not die in that situation. Your season of Divine Rest has started in this Month of July.
He who is bowed down shall speedily be released; he shall not die and go down to the pit, neither shall his bread be lacking.
Rejoice. Your season of compensation and celebration is here.
Instead of your shame there shall be a DOUBLE PORTION; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore IN THEIR LAND they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.
In the very same place that you’ve known shame and embarrassment, divine honour shall locate and elevate you. Just turn back your faith, confidence and hope focus on Jesus.
It’s a new day. It’s a season of Rest. It’s a time of settlement. The Shunnamite woman returned in the 7th year in 2 Kings 8, the restored back to her all that she has lost in the past 7 years. From this 7th month forward, God is also restoring to you all that you’ve lost in the past 7 years.
Let a thunderous “AMEN” attest to your receiving in Faith.
