When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you. (Isaiah 43:2)
Lord, You have Searched Me and Know Me
…Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.… (Ps 139: 6-10)
Lord, what an awesome feeling to know that I will not face this unknown future alone as I can trust you to be with me, to help me and to save me. I am confident that my All-Knowing, Unlimited Supply, Faithful, Unconditional Loving, All-Powerful, Sovereign, Only Wise God is with me and He will never leave me nor forsake me.
He is there to give me a second, third... tenth chance, that even my mistakes He will use for my good and His Glory. My Heavenly Father holds me in His Righteous Right Hand. He has a prosperous, purposeful and productive future for me despite my setbacks, the real struggles of life and all my shortcomings. My protection, my promotion, and my provision comes from Him. He is there to redeem me from the pit and place me in His palace.
But now thus says the Lord, He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine." (Isaiah 43:1)
So I cry my tears, straighten my crown as it got shift in the storm, muscle up a mustard seed of faith and believe that My God, The One Who Made The Heavens and The Earth, He shall give me a double portion of blessings for all my shame, sufferings, and sacrifices. So declare with me, "In the name of Jesus, I boldly and faithfully claim... A double portion of anointing, a double portion of healing... a double portion of prosperity... a double portion of inheritance... a double portion of favor, a double portion of honor... a double portion of love... A double portion of joy... A double portion of peace... A super-double portion of His Chayil Glory... In the name of Jesus, everything is Double-Double!"
You may be denied, demoted, dejected, disappointed, disapproved, depressed, defeated, divorced, diseased, destructed, dishonored, disillusioned... but God says... "I will Redeem you and you shall have Double for your all your troubles!"
Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (Isaiah 61:7)
There is a success in the process.
There is wealth in the Potter's plan.
There is a purpose in the pain.
There is a promotion for the shame.
Out of the ashes, beauty shall rise.
Out of the cocoon, the Butterfly emerge.
Out of coal, a diamond sparkle.
Out of crucifixion was our gift of salvation.
Out of you and me, emerge a glorious and prosperous nation!
Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed. What the enemy intended for evil against you, to hurt you and cause you harm. God shall use it for good. The storm shall strengthen your resilience, deepen your faith in God, enlarge your territory, challenge you to a new capacity, increase your capability, explode your potential and catapult you to greater dimensions... all for the Glory of God!
Do not be afraid, Only Believe...
There is Beauty, Blessings and Breakthroughs, out of this Brokenness!
There is a Miracle in the mess and a Testimony shall come out of this test!
So All within me, Praise His Holy Name!
…Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion;… (Psalm 103:2-4)
