The Lord is speaking to us about 2010 being a year of restoration. It is His will for His people to walk in wholeness and fullness of life, both individually and corporately. The Lord is showing us that the restoration process takes place as we align ourselves with His Truth and walk by faith and in obedience to His will. As we do so, we will see God's grace released for the restoration of health, relationships and resources as well as the unveiling of God's assignments, purposes and strategic direction for us.
Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about Divine Exchange and this is what He showed us:
- Jesus became man in order to completely identify with us. Phil. 2:5-8
- Jesus can identify with us when we are tempted because He was tempted. Heb. 2:14-18; 4:15
- Jesus can identify with the consequences of our sin because He endured the pain and suffering of our sin on the cross. Isaiah 53
- Jesus clothed Himself with humanity so that we could be clothed with Divinity! 2 Cor. 8:9; 2 Peter 1:4
- The appropriation of the Divine Exchange occurs as we trust in God and He renews and restores us. Is. 40:31
"...those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength" Isaiah 40:31
- To "wait" is to be entwined in God.
- To "renew" is to exchange.
The Lord then showed us how to be entwined in Him and how to be restored with the following:
- Fix your eyes on Jesus and not on your circumstances or pain.
- Worship the Lord and enter into His presence.
- Allow God to envelop you with His presence.
- Entwine yourself in God.
- Exchange your imperfection for His perfection (your sin for His forgiveness; your pain for His healing; your sorrow for His joy; your anger for His grace etc)
- Thank God for the exchange and for what you have now received.
- Meditate on what He has graced you with.
We praise God for teaching us how to appropriate the Divine Exchange and how we can walk in wholeness and fullness of life! Hallelujah!
