According to our Focal Scripture, the ten lepers that met Jesus were all men. They were not boys; they were men. The word ‘men’ as used in that scripture comes from the Greek word ‘aner’; one of the meanings of ‘aner’ is ‘noble man’; another meaning of ‘aner’ is ‘king’. So these men were nobles and of the stock of royalty, but leprosy struck them, and they were reduced, not just to mere commoners, but to lepers.
Friend, I pray for you: in the areas of your life where you have been reduced, let the hand of the Lord pull you up. In the places where your portion has been reduced, let the hand of the Lord restore it unto you. In the places where your relevance has been minimized, let the hand of the Lord put you back to where you should be. Let the hand of the Lord bring you back to the heights you once attained; let the hand of the Lord restore you.
Those ten men may have had families and responsibilities to deal with, but leprosy reduced them, and they could no longer do what they were able to do before. Leprosy reduced their capacities. Every reduction in your capacity, today, I decree a restoration. In the areas where your hands have become weak, let the strength of the Lord come through for you. In the places where you cannot bear burdens, may your hands be strengthened.
Your destiny will not be reduced. You will not move from visibility to obscurity; you will not move from relevance to irrelevance; you will not move from high places to low places; you will not move from wealth to poverty; you will not move from being important to being a nonentity; you will not reduce in value; you will not be counted among men who depreciated and retrogressed with time. You will not be reduced.
The power of destiny reduction is broken over your life. You will no longer go down. You will not be displaced from your high places. Reduction is over; restoration is imminent.
