Release To Be Restored Events


        What is Release To Be Restored?

We travel to your event, whether it’s a women’s or men’s group, a conference, a Bible Study group, a youth group, prayer group, church or school event. 

Doesn’t matter what the event.  We provide everything you need for a meaningful instant deliverance service.

Many people are carrying around way too much junk! 

It is clogging our souls, filling our minds and making our bodies sick.  

At Restored Ministries, we love to share God’s amazing transforming and restoring power with others in this simple visual exercise.

We release every secret, sin, or struggle to obtain real emotional deliverance.  We believe as the Word of God says; where your mind goes -the rest of you follows. 

That is the first step in learning to       #LiveRestored  #MindBodySoul

It’s simple- 

We Start off writing down what we need to release on special paper:

It may be things like anger or abuse or guilt or pride or addictions….it could be a person/s.

Then you place them into our basins filled with water to represent the Living Cleansing Water of Jesus Christ.  Our Redeemer and Deliverer. 


A gentle stir of the water ….

Those things are starting to release their stronghold over you.

Another stir …..

You no longer can make out the words of the things that held you captive.

Another stir….


Maybe a few shed tears….or a lot of tears as you finally do a final stir….

Boom! There you go! God has washed away everything you were willing to release to Him.

We offer prayer immediately following this exercise and if people need additional prayer or Sozo services they are available by appointment.

It’s All His Stage 

  
Spent today in a conversation

In the mirror face to face with

somebody less than perfect

I wouldn’t choose me first if

I was looking for a champion

In fact I’d understand if

You picked everyone before me

But that’s just not my story….



I may not have chosen me, but I am so glad God did! He thinks I am perfectly imperfect. 



I am a natural encourager. As far back as I can remember I have loved to encourage people and help them recognize their own awesomeness. I am a great cheerleader just without all the backflips and high toe jumps. 
Since coming to Christ and knowing that He definitely is all about Restoration, and the transformation He did in my own life, I love to share God’s awesomeness with others too.

True to who You are

You saw my heart

and made

Something out of nothing



I am not a nobody, I am just somebody that simply said yes to God. 


I’m not living for applause

I’m already so adored

It’s all His stage

He knows my name oh, oh,

He knows my name oh, oh



“It’s all His stage” 

and thankfully it is big enough for us all!   



I don’t live for the applause or count likes or followers. When God downloaded Restored Ministries to me in February 2014, I said,

Lord if just one person is encouraged or inspired and comes to know You deeper, I am good. I told God that I wanted to be obedient to what He asked me to do and not run ahead or try to force things on my own. I want to follow His flow.  



Almost 2 years later, God is still faithful. He is still blowing my mind with Divine Encounters, and appointments and connections. 
Each day God brings so many people across my path, online and off, to pray for, encourage, inspire, serve, help, mentor and love, etc.  
He knows my name, and my heart, and what He has called me to… I don’t have to force others to understand or support it.



Of course it is important to advertise, don’t get me wrong, we should share and ask others to like what we are doing, but ultimately I trust God to bring who He needs to bring in His perfect timing. I don’t need my name in lights, I am already famous in my Father’s eyes.

He Knows My Name – FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI 
LYRICS:
Spent today in a conversation

In the mirror face to face with

somebody less than perfect

I wouldn’t choose me first if

I was looking for a champion

In fact I’d understand if

You picked everyone before me

But that’s just not my story

True to who You are

You saw my heart

and made

Something out of nothing
[Chorus:]

I don’t need my name in lights

I’m famous in my Father’s eyes

Make no mistake

He knows my name

I’m not living for applause

I’m already so adored

It’s all His stage

He knows my name oh, oh,

He knows my name oh, oh
I’m not meant to just stay quiet

I’m meant to be a lion

I’ll roar beyond a song

With every moment that I’ve got

True to who You are

You saw my heart

and made

Something out of nothing
[Chorus]
He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,

His forever, held in treasure…

I am loved
I don’t need my name in lights…

I’m famous in my Father’s eyes…
[Chorus]

Promotion 

  

Define

Promotion can be defined as the action of raising someone to a higher position or rank or the fact of being so raised.

 

Affirm:  

1 Peter 5:6-7 “So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.”

 

Recall:  

On Tuesday, June 16, 2015 the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 105-97 win for the 2015 NBA Championship game. For those of us that watch basketball, the final series was quite exciting and intense. For those of us that live in Houston, we were even more excited about supporting the Rockets this past season as well. I didn’t watch much basketball during the regular season; but I did watch a few of the Rockets vs Warriors games. That’s when I learned about Steph Curry, basketball’s MVP of the year. I decided to research more about Steph’s journey to MVP.  

 

Here’s information that you might not know about Steph’s basketball journey:

■ He was criticized by his peers for working on his shot in middle school

■ He was often overlooked because of his height and size, despite his talent

■ He wasn’t offered an athletic scholarship to a major university, even when his father reached out to professional contacts (he was offered the option to walk on a team)

■ He was the number 7 pick for the NBA draft in 2009, and was passed up by 5 teams

■ He suffers ongoing injuries to his ankles
Steph is now considered one of the best shooters the NBA has ever seen. I am in awe about what I learned about him. It made me think about what it takes to be great.  

 

I am wondering, have you ever felt overlooked? Have you ever been labeled as the underdog? Do you feel it’s time for an increase? Have you been criticized because you chose a different path? Are you due for a promotion?  

 

If you like me have experienced, feeling overlooked or being the underdog- just know that the key to your promotion is being content where you are and staying obedient to GOD’s word. In due season, GOD will promote you at the right time.  

 

Just like Steph, you must stay aggressive, be confident, and make plays. Steph has remained obedient and after he makes a good play, he pounds his chest and points to the sky to symbolize his heart for GOD as a reminder of who he is playing for.  

 

GOD’s POWER will always exceed the limitations that PEOPLE have. My challenge is when you feel that PEOPLE are overlooking you, remain steadfast in GOD and he will PROMOTE you. 

  

Exercise

Dear God, 

 Thank you so much for your commit to promote me at the right time. When I am feeling overlooked by others, please help me to stay focused on you. Thank you so much for my commitment to be steadfast in your promise. I know when you promote me it will be at the highest level. I thank you in advance for my promotion.

 

Commit to the challenge. I DARE you.
