How to Receive Restoration from the LORD

Restoration is getting back someone or something precious you lose. This world entails the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, light time and the darkest time…

No one can escape the two sides of this world; the smooth and the rough.

I remembered how I received the restoration from the Lord some years ago; I got married to a beautiful lady who gave birth to a handsome boy. She went through hard times few hours to the delivery and we agreed on caesarean.

The mother was going through the mild pains and healing process that accompanied the delivery when the gentle boy began to experience an unexplained inconvenience.

We rushed him to the hospital and the doctor said that my child was fine. But, we lost him thirty days after his arrival on earth. I held the dead boy to my chest and prayed to the Lord who had used me to raise the dead before, to bring life to my dead son…

But, God told me that His peace is sufficient for me and He promised to restore us. I wept bitterly and mourned for a year. It wasn’t easy, but we held tightly to Jesus.

He fulfilled His promise and we enjoyed His restoration; a natural birth to a beautiful baby girl…

You might be going through the darkest time of this world; Jesus can lead you through the dark tunnel. Today’s message will teach you how to receive restoration from the Lord.

10 Ways to Receive Restoration from the Lord

1. Check and Balance

Some bad situations occur to us because we carelessly open the loopholes. So, check your lifestyle, balance it with the instructions of God in the Bible and you will enjoy His restoration.

For instance, the Israelites enjoyed restoration during the lead of prophet Nehemiah. “Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, in sackcloth and with dust on their heads…” (Nehemiah chapter 9)

2. Fertilize your Faith

It is natural to feel bad in times of trouble, but do not let your faith to melt away. Some people become atheist, because they lost their faith when in trouble – a big disaster for their eternity!!

You cannot receive restoration from the Lord if your faith in Him is uncertain.

Matthew chapter 17 verse 20 says: “So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

3. Fellowship with God

God promises to restore His children when they go through tribulation.

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

You can speedily receive restoration from the Lord if you upheld your fellowship with Him. Fellowship with the Lord involves creating an ample time to sing, worship, praise and pray to the Lord. I assure you that God is not deaf. He heard my prayers. He will also grant your request for restoration.

4. Film the Patience

God’s time is different from yours, so wait patiently for your restoration. Was 400 years too long for the restoration of the children of Jacob? No, it was the right time! Was 4 days too short for Lazarus’ restoration? No, it was God’s timing! Thus, be faithful to the Lord and wait patiently for His restoration.

5. Weep Moderately

It is healthy to weep when going through hard times, but it is unhealthy to empty all the tears in the weeping closet. Uncontrollable weep can lead to; confusion, lack of focus, chronic depression and spiritual separation from the Lord.

6. Rejoice

It may sound strange to you that the best way to get restoration from the Lord is to rejoice in times of trouble. Paul discovered the secret and he said to the Colossians: “I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church…” (Colossians 1:24)

7. Be Hopeful

Do not run to the Satanists, false Pastors or Prophets for solutions. Let your heart be filled with the promises of the Lord in the Bible and have a positive mind.

8. Fix the Humble Heart

The Lord tests the heart of His children. So, you would receive restoration from the Lord speedily if you pass the test of humility.


First Peter chapter 5 verse 6 and 7 says: “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

9. Meditate the Word

Read the Bible on a higher frequency when you go through hard times. This process helps me in a great way. Your heavy heart would be relieved if you meditate on the Word of God every day and night. Restoration from the Lord has its basis from the word of God.

10. Prayers

I remembered a song that says:

“Prayer is the key] twice

Prayer is the master key

Jesus started with prayers and ended with prayers

Prayer is the master key.”


Psalm 55 verse 16 to 18 says: “As for me, I will call upon God, and the LORD shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice. He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, for there were many against me.”

The Lord is not wicked and He is a faithful God. The world is filled with evil due to the presence of Devil in it. Don’t be afraid, because your restoration comes from the Lord.
