The Power of Restoration/Reversal Sermon and Prayers for Restoration – Pastor Mensa Otabil
In the Bible, we see several instances where God reversed situations in people’s life. God has undo buttons, when things have gone out of your life he is able to reverse them, and what you thought have been destroyed totally comes back into your life.
Psalm 126 NKJV – When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. 2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” 3 The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad. 4 Bring back our captivity, O LORD, As the streams in the South. 5 Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. 6 He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.
This Psalm is a prophetic Psalm because it looked into the future of God’s restoration of the people from captivity. At this time, they haven’t gone into captivity in Babylon but the Psalmist is prophesying what the return from captivity will be like; it will be like a dream. I believe that there are times that God does things in our lives and it seems like you are dreaming. He says when the Lord does something and it is as if you are dreaming, your mouth will be filled with laughter and then he says that we will sing; so there is laughter and singing and the joy of the Lord that fills your heart because the Lord has turned your captivity.
