“Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.” Zechariah 9:12 (NIV)
The enemy of souls may have stolen your joy, but the Lord has promised to restore to you double. You may have lost health, career, family, but the Lord God declares that He will restore to you twice as much. The delay may try your faith and the pain may push you to doubt, but wait on the Lord for your double blessing.
Just as our days on earth are fleeting moments of time that cause us to wonder where our lives went, so will we soon find ourselves in the place of double blessings. Our hope may be realized yet on earth but it is certain in Heaven.
Let’s pray today to be patient in endurance and hopeful as we wait on our Lord’s promise.
