Double Honour

Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran
13 Jan
In the Bible, we read about Joseph who suffered trouble after trouble even in his young age.  However, as the Lord was with him, he was lifted to the highest authoritative position in the land of Egypt, where once he was a slave.  There he named his firstborn son ‘Manasseh’ and said, “It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.” The second son he named ‘Ephraim’ and said, “It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering ” (Genesis 41:51-52).  How good is the Lord Almighty who blessed him with double portion of honour in the same place where he went through shame.
 
Lord  God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. See what Soundarya Vineel, Kakinada(Andhra Pradesh, India) shares about God’s goodness: “We were living in a house which was partially built. We started its construction in 2010, but could not complete, as the government-housing loan was not sanctioned. Our waiting prolonged for nearly 8 years. Looking at this state, everyone started to laugh at us. We cried to God. In 2018, I read about the Ghatkopar Mumbai Prayer Tower’s reconstruction in the Jesus Calls magazine. We decided to send money for this Prayer Tower construction despite our lack in finance. In July 2018, we sent Rs. 250/- for this purpose and sought prayers for our house. Miraculously, in the same year, God sanctioned Rs. 85,000/- from the government housing loan.  The miraculous part is that it was an interest-free loan.  God constructed our house, free of cost. Now our house construction is completed. We are so thankful to God and for the sincere prayers of the Dhinakaran family.”
Beloved, the same God has seen your tears, insults and shame.  Your prayers are answered.  His eyes of love have seen your anxiety and sleepless nights.  Even today the same Lord is about to bless you in double portion before your enemies.  Yes, Instead of your shame you shall have double honour” (Isaiah 61:7) says the Lord God Almighty.  Heaven and earth may pass away; but His word would remain!  Have hope on this strong foundation.  Your victory is on your way. Cheer up!
Prayer:
Loving heavenly Father,

I thank You for Your encouraging and comforting words. Bless me O Lord, and grant me a double portion of honour wherever I am put to shame. Irrespective of my unpleasant situation, help me to follow Your statutes.  Give me faith and patience to wait upon You until You lift me in due time.  I believe You will answer my prayer and grant me days of success and happiness. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
