Scripture for today

Isaiah 61:7 AMP
Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.

On Saturday we talked about those moments when it felt like God has abandoned you. I will go on today to relate the fact that God is interested in standing up for you. He is still in the business of paying you double for all your troubles. God will pay you back for all the hurts someone has unleashed on you. I once heard the story of a young woman who was supposed to wed on a certain day. It was supposed to be her court marriage and on arriving the court that day the man who happened to be a solider was no where to be found. He left her stranded with no groom. He absconded and left her scattered emotionally. She couldn't believe a man who has pleaded to love her till eternity couldn't even stand up to take his vows. She had no one else to look up to but God. 

5 years later she got married to another solider, she was able to overcome the hurts of the past. She forged ahead and God didn't fail to bless her. Her new husband was a solider who the other solider that abandoned her was junior to. Unfortunately or fortunately, the same man who she was supposed to marry became one of her husband's security. Sometimes he had to open the door of her car for her. It doesn't happen for everyone this way but the truth is that God always pays of back for the times we were hurt. 

Our God is just and faithful too, he never leaves us stranded without making a way of us getting back to him. If you have a friend who has just been jilted, put to shame, falsely accused or even crushed. Share this post with them. Remind them that God will pay the back double for it all. 

Prayer: Father, pay me double for all my troubles.
