Daily Bites “Double Trouble”

17 07 2010

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 MSG) Emphasis mine.

And the Lord restored Job’s losses…Indeed the Lord gave Job TWICE as much as he had before. (Job 42:10 NKJV)

Our Father tests us for several reasons: to humble us; to teach us; to know what’s in our hearts; and to see if we will keep His Word or not. (Deut 8:2) And He compensates our perseverance during these tests—our determined persistence in pressing through them with His Word—with DOUBLE FOR OUR TROUBLE!

O Lord, I believe; help my unbelief! Cause my thoughts and mouth to agree with no other word BUT YOURS, Father. For a man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is! Attend to my cry, Lord, give ear to my prayer…You have tested my heart…I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress… By the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer. Uphold my steps in Your paths, that my footsteps may not slip…Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You, in Jesus’ name. Amen
(Mark 9:24; Proverbs 15:23; Psalm 17 NKJV)
