Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever. Isaiah 61:7
Today the Lord led me to Isaiah 61:7. As you read through that scripture take it into your spirit and understand it as a specific WORD from the Lord for you today.
So many of us live in shame and dishonor regarding things that happened before we surrendered all to Christ.
Now we are surrendered to God and trying to live each day for Him and yet we still live with a residue of pain and dishonor. Perhaps our finances, family relationships, or reputations suffered because of not being right with God at onetime in our lives. We know that God has forgiven us and yet the shame of these things follows us each day. If we are not careful we can dwell in the depression of looking back with regret. We can believe, in error, that we will forever be stuck with the results of disobedience.
Then we may have friends and family who don’t show us the same forgiveness that God does. The Word says in Psalm 103:12 the following;
“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”
He forgives and forgets. You will not be punished your entire life time because of confessed sin that you repent from.
Now today I am coming, on behalf of the Lord, to tell you what He wants you to know. He has seen your tears, heard your prayers and you are entering a time of renewed honor and increased prosperity. If you go to verse 8 you will see that the Lord is not happy with the unjust treatment you are receiving. He is about to reward you for your suffering. Not just reward you but reward you with twice as much.
I believe those who have endured a period of grief over unjust situations are entering a time of recompense from the Lord. We are standing on the threshold of having our lives turned around for the better. When others see it they will know, without a doubt, you are a much loved and highly favored child of God.
Release the pain of the consequences of your past and enter into a period of renewed respect and promotion. God is releasing these things to you. Use them for building up others and blessing them, too, in the name of God. Let people know how good God is to you!
