In God’s word he promises to bless us beyond measures if only we become obedient to his will and to his way. In this life we will have troubles, distractions, hardships, heartbreak, pain and setbacks.
I know what it feels like to hurt internally from the emotional distress of life. I know what it feels like to lose hope and to be discouraged but there is one thing that I’ve learned through my process and that’s God never promised everyday would be perfect but he did promise to be with us always. He promised to stand by our side, to walk with us through the storm and to hold our hand in the midst of it. He also promised to give us double for our troubles.
This means he’s willing to give us a double-portion blessing for every tear that we shed in discomfort. If you’ve been crying a lot lately you can expect to smile like you’ve never smiled before. If things have occurred in your life that has stripped your joy, you can get ready for double joy, unspeakable joy. The kind of joy that no human can take away. If you’ve been experiencing conflict in your home, marriage or on your job get ready for double peace, the peace that transcends all understanding. Some of us have been getting attacked in our finances but God is getting ready to turn it around. He is Jehovah Jiroh, The God Who Provides, and he’s about to bless our finances like never before. Somebody say Increase!!!
You have to delcare out of your mouth and believe in your heart so that God can begin to move on your behalf. So that he can begin to restore to you the things that were lost and stolen. Job 42:10 says, ” And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends. The Lord also gave Job twice as much as he had before.” God gave Job a double-portion because Job acted in obedience and selflessness. Although he was suffering and in pain, he still found it in his heart to pray for his friends because he knew that was the only way he would hear from heaven. God excersized grace towards Job and released a restoration of double-portion upon his life.
Just like Job I’m expecting God to release a double-portion in every area of my life and you should too!!! Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready in the awesome words of Bishop T.D. Jakes because this is our SEASON OF RESTORATION AND GOD IS GOING TO GIVE US DOUBLE FOR OUR TROUBLES! CLAIM IT, WALK IN IT AND BELIEVE IT!!!!
Also for this week we can study and mediate on Isaiah 6:17.
