Double for Your Trouble.
How many of you like promises? I do. But I only like the ones people keep. So let me give you a promise from God to you: “Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours” (Isaiah 61:7).
There are a lot of people who go around feeling bad about themselves, hanging their heads and walking in defeat when God promises to not just remove the shame, but give you twice as much honor. In other words, God is going to give you double for your trouble. Not only does God promise restored honor … but restored resources too.
How many of you would love to live with double? You see, I believe that God is in the restoration business, not the sanitation business. He restores, rebuilds, remakes and remolds our lives to be better. When he gives you the restoration you need he has another promise; everlasting JOY will be yours. Depression, discouragement and defeat are gone because God has given you a double dose of joy. And Scripture says that joy “comes from the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17).
So I am ready for some restoration. I am ready for my double. I am ready for my healing. I am ready for my miracle. Here’s a restoration declaration:
“Today, I declare … that God is good … the enemy is a liar … I am convinced … God will restore … my joy … my passion … my finances … my health … my family … I will not lack … I will not doubt … I will not fear … because this is my year … I declare … double for my trouble … In Jesus name, Amen.”
Never forget God’s promise to you: “Double for your trouble.”
