As I consider the pandemics that seem to have this world in captivity, I’m reminded of God’s people In the Old Testament when they were going through a very dark time. They were being held captive against their will and mistreated by other nations. God sent this word to encourage them and give them hope for their future. He will give them double for their trouble. When the time came God set them free from the oppressor, He was faithful to His Word! Hallelujah!
I know we’re going through a hard time globally, but in your personal life are you going through a difficult time with bills, relationships, mental health and other things? Let this word bring you encouragement too. God wants to give you double for your trouble. He is the God of restoration—that means He’s not going to just repay you for every wrong done, He’s going to go above and beyond and make things even better than they were before.
Today, if you are facing challenges, or going through a time of adversity, remember, it’s always darkest just before the dawn appears. Your days are destined to shine brighter, because God is faithful. As you stay in faith and are obedient to His Word, you’ll receive double for your trouble and the blessings He has in store for you! Hold on to Him and we will see the global captives of covid-19 and racism disappear, and we will be set free and abundantly blessed!
“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” (Isaiah 61:7, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your Word which lights my path and guides my steps. Father, I will put my trust and hope in You beginning today. God, give me the strength to hold on to You as I face the double assassin of covid-19 and racism. Thank You for the promises of freedom and restoration. I receive them right now by faith into my life, as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
