Sometimes in the midst of your despair you think that all has gone wrong. You feel as if the whole world is against you and the hurt is too much to bear. What we must remember that with sorrow comes joy and the Lord WILL give you a double portion at the end of it all.
Today Church Dress received a great email from an even greater website with a perfect message for everyone...
God says in His Word that you will receive double for your troubles. If the devil has given you one trouble, then for that one trouble, you can expect to receive a double-portion blessing! And if that trouble has caused you to experience shame, God’s promise to you is this: “Instead of your shame you shall have double honour”! God wants to give you a double-portion blessing for every trouble you go through!
The moment you respond to God in faith, He gets involved in your restoration. And He does not restore to you the same amount you have lost. You always get more than before, if not in quantity, then in quality. You will be at a higher place than before. You will be stronger, healthier, wealthier, wiser or more at peace.
This was the case with Job. satan was behind Job’s troubles but when Job responded in faith, God took it upon Himself to restore ALL that Job had lost. The Bible tells us that Job received double in terms of quantity — from 7,000 sheep to 14,000 sheep, 3,000 camels to 6,000 camels,etc. And for the children he had lost, God restored in terms of quality — his daughters were the fairest in all the land. (Job 1:2–3, 13–19; 42:12–15)
