Isaiah 61:7 – 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. (NIV)
A double portion comes in twofold. It refers to receiving a duplicated blessing just as God promised in today’s Bible reading to bless us in multiple folds. That’s why I can decree to your life that every benefit you are due for in this old year shall be released to you in great measure, in Jesus’ name. A double portion could mean an unlimited anointing. In 2 Kings 2:2-10, Elisha didn’t stay behind; he followed his master till he got a blank cheque. Therefore, Elisha asked for twofold of Elijah’s anointing and did exactly double exploits. Are you willing to continuously pray and wait for your day of glory as of Elisha? It is my prayer that as you decide to wait upon the Lord to follow Him through, your destiny shall speak in Jesus’ name (Isaiah 40:31).
Beloved, as we march towards the end of October, you will ask for a double-portion of every good thing you desire. It could be your prayer life, spiritual growth, career development or marital blessings—whatsoever you ask in the name of Jesus shall be released unto you. However, to enjoy a ceaseless flow of the double portion, you must not be a robber of God’s entitlement (praises, tithes and offerings—Malachi 3:8-12, Isaiah 61:8-9). You should also aspire to be a kingdom labourer so that without asking, God can reward you in abundance (1 Timothy 5:17). Above all, know your God and trust in the power of His might (Ephesians 6:10).
Hymn: Jesus, I Come — William T. Sleeper (1887)
1. Give thanks to God for your life, protection and providence.
2. Father, I prefer Your power to wealth. Please, release it to me in double portions.
3. Blank Cheque: Ask a hard thing! (Spend quality time on this)
1. Father, please let my joy multiply massively in the remainder of this year.
2. I cancel every trap of death set for me, my family, friends, leaders and the Church.
3. Any issue or power silencing my voice of glory, be silenced by fire.
4. Father, in any way I have been dancing at the gate of shame, demotion and hell, rescue me tonight.
YOU SHALL HAVE EVERY REASON TO TESTIFY
