DAILY VERSE
Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.
Isaiah 61:7 ESV
 
DEVOTION
Have you ever been involved with something that seemed ordained by God only to have it blow up in your face? Everything seemed to line up, other Christians were involved, God seemed to be piecing things together supernaturally then everything fell apart. It’s mind boggling and will leave you asking questions you have no answer for, a true test of your faith. But God has his reasons for everything. Maybe my faith needed testing, maybe all of us involved needed to be tested. God will temper us like silver through the fire. The Bible has stories all throughout it where people are tested and their lives are restored a “double portion”! My faith has grown, my reliance on him is absolute and in the end I have hope that restoration will come in a “double portion”.
