“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.” (Isa 61:7)
I love this word; it is such an encouragement to me. Here is a wonderful and endearing picture of the heart of God to restore. He will take our shame and replace it with a blessing double the size of what was lost.
He will take the disgrace we may have experienced, and it will be replaced with rejoicing in the abundance of His blessing and provision. If you have experienced failure at work, there is hope in these words.
Not only will we receive twice as much as we would have originally had things gone well, but the joy will be everlasting. It will be a blessing not only for this world but for the one beyond out into eternity for ever and ever—blessing, abundance, and joy.
Quick Prayer: Thank You that failure does not preclude a great blessing. Amen.
