“For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.” Isaiah 61:7
One thing you must know about God’s character and nature is He will never allow His children, whom He love, to go through the tests, the fire, and the valley and not experience His goodness in an outweighed measure in their life. Surely His goodness and mercy follows you all of the days of your life!
Just as Job received twice as much as he had before his calamity, it is God’s will that you also receive double for your trouble. Double for your shame and double for your confusion. When God turned the captivity of Zion, they were like them that dream! They were walking around saying, “Pinch me. God is blessing me in such a way that I feel like I am dreaming!” The nations around them said, “Surely they are the nation whom the Lord has blessed.” Those around you may have seen your shame, but they will witness God exalting you and blessing you.
God has a plan for all the pain you’ve endured and it involves you being greatly blessed in a way that glorifies Him in the earth!
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your word to me today! I receive the double for all the trouble and pain, I receive Your blessing and I receive Your immeasurable favor in my life. Be glorified! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
