Restoring your vessel so the river of life can flow!

Happy Friday all!

Many of you who follow the blog or have been able to visit the garden in person know all about the water feature in Judah that represents the river of life flowing through us (John 7:38 and Rev. 22:1).

The only problem we have had with this water feature has been leaking. So over the last few weeks, in the dead of winter while nothing else has been going on, Jesus and his crew have been working diligently to repair and restore the waterfall. He had to strip it bare and start over with a new foundation, and rebuild from the bottom up.

You all know that 2014 is the year of deliverance, and all of us have been undergoing all kinds of deliverance, maintenance, and cleansing. You can’t put a bandaid on your wounds and expect them to heal – you must allow God to dig in deep and restore and repair you from the inside out! If you feel that you have been undergoing some serious cleaning out and deliverance, rejoice, because you are in good company! This is a season that God is asking us to shed our burdens so that we can rise up and walk on the water as He has called us to do. We can’t do that if we’re clinging to the past!

I’ve prepared this video of the process of the restoration of the waterfall in Judah, and I encourage you to watch it and declare that God is restoring you from the inside out, and you will be better, more whole, and more joyful than you have ever been! This video is a visual representation of what is going on in the Body of Christ right now. He is cleaning house, and the outcome will be beautiful and a wonderful testimony to God’s glory. Don’t let the devil discourage you during this time! Take heart in your season of deliverance, and remember Romans 8:18 – the pain and struggles of the present cannot even come close to comparing to the joy and life that is coming! Rejoice!

The song in the video is called Lead Me to the Waters and is by James Vincent. It’s on The Portal CD and is available on iTunes.

    Thank you! You are so right!


  2. I’m Blessed beyond measure . My only regret is I’m not there to see the restoration. Maybe when God is finished restoring me in this season I’ll be able to come.

    This visual encouraged me to continue with the process so the river of life can flow freely again. God Bless you Tracey and thanks………it helps to know we are not along in the process.

      This is just the word I needed! Just journaled that God is transforming me from the inside out and taking me so far out my comfort zone. I knew it was cleasing & deliverance but I was at a lost. Thanks so much for this very, very, timely word. Just what I needed! Thanks again!

    This so defines the season I am in. It has been so difficult yet I sense the passion of God digging deep to route out all that hinders. Thank-you so much, Sheryl


  7. Thank you for the encouragement!


  8. Had a very hard week. Was thinking that maybe I don’t want to do all the work to be restored, but I will press on after seeing this. Since 8 is the number of new beginnings—Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I will declare that God is restoring me from the inside out, and I will be better, more whole, and more joyful than I have ever been. God is restoring this vessel.

    It is so good to be connected with Glory of Zion, even from a distance. However, in the Spirit I feel so close…..this is exactly where the Lord has me and I am so grateful. Its good to know its a season and He is doing this in His whole church, not just me. I have so much hope for the future! Thank you for sharing this.

    Refreshing and reviving! There is so much revelation in the words here but to see the process of the restoration shows the depth, the struggle, the strength, and the deliberate actions God will do to see us fully restored, revieved and refreshed. Thank you GOZ for being an Elim in the wilderness as we move into promise.


  11. Heard James singing and when the water started flowing I saw the point. Empacting!

    Thank you. This video allows me to see understand what tender care our Lord
    is using to restore the broken areas of my life. It is good to be reminded, once again, that during dark times I am not alone. Ever! And that, truly, I can give thanks in all things.

    Your blog is right on time. Thank you. This is the perfect “picture” of what God is doing. I play the video and capture still pics as it plays. Then I use the pictures to remind myself of the steps I am going through in deliverance. It’s a wonderful gift you give. Thank you!

    Wow! I am overwhelmed with the Father’s thoughts that run so very deep unto us for our well-being. Thank you, Glory of Zion, in Yeshua!

    Awesome! Amazing! Renewed and Restored! Thank you for the beautiful song and the video viewing it reminded me “God is bringing about deliverance and restoring into the “New.” Thank you Glory of Zion! Great to be connected!
