"RESTORING THE LOST YEARS"
By Elaine Tavolacci
Every one of us have lost years of our lives to sickness, financial losses or some other misfortune. Some have lost their youth from addictions, and for those
of you who are still battling with addictions, now is your time to be set free. An addiction is an enslavement to something in the natural that appears to be stronger than you.
Jesus spoke a parable saying: "No one can enter a strong man's
house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house".
Jesus wants to deliver you today.
As I was reading about the three different types of locusts in the book of Joel, I found that
the first locust mentioned is at an early stage of development. The second type of locust was to devour and the third type of locust was to totally annihilate. As I was studying this the Lord gave me this word. The three types of locusts are an analogy of
the enemies who come to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus wants to recover those years and bring restoration and completeness to your life.
The Lord says I will restore the years that have been ravaged by the enemy and repair every wounded
place in your life. I will mend the areas that have been battered by the winds of adversity so that your emotions will be healed and your soul will be restored. I will destroy the strongholds, old mindsets and memories, which the enemy has placed in your thoughts.
I will secure the structures of your mind that have become warped and weakened.
As you allow Me to uncover the hidden agendas, I will make all things new and satisfy the desolate wasteland. The turmoil that you are experiencing is because
I am uncovering the secret plans and strategies of the enemy that need to be revealed. As you discontinue the hidden behavior that is not pleasing to Me, you will be released into a new level of freedom. Those of you who have been through horrendous years
in your past will be totally set free. Allow Me to remove the memories that vex you and nightmares that torment you. I will pour My fresh oil, heal your broken hearts and bind up your wounds.
Don't relive the thoughts from the past and
mistakes that have already been forgiven. Don't allow the enemy to lacerate old wounds. Refuse to be intimidated by those who try to belittle you. Be quick to forgive them and never allow unforgiveness to take root, which will bring a root of bitterness. Although
people may fail you, do not hold them accountable. I will never fail you nor break My Covenant with you neither will I revise My promises to you. Ask Me for wisdom and I will give it to you for all the affairs of your life. As you turn to Me and allow Me to
renew your mind and cleanse your hearts you will find victory in the days ahead. My glory will be your rear guard and you will go out with joy and be led forth in peace. My goodness will go before you and you will be led in a victory that you have not yet
known. Allow Me to fill you with new courage, strength and confidence which will redirect you into your destiny. Every area of your life that you allow Me to take possession of will become fruitful and you will become the person who I have created you to be
says the Lord.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Joel 2: 24 – 25
The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow
with new wine and oil. "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the
name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have
life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
