Do you need more faith in your life? What if there were ways you could actually double the amount of faith you have for God’s blessing, power, and provision?
Today I challenge you to take a journey beyond superficial faith and into a dimension of faith where the impossible becomes possible. Jesus wasn’t kidding when He promised, “All things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).
What an awesome promise! Instead of being a mere theory or religious platitude, faith is the bridge that allows believers to tap into the supernatural power of God. Just as money is the currency to obtain things on earth, faith is the currency of the Kingdom of Heaven.
The writer of the book of Hebrews warns that it’s impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews 11:6). He didn’t say it’s merely hard, but that it’s impossible! This means faith is not merely a nice option in our walk with the Lord—it’s critical.
People frequently say that “seeing is believing,” but in reality, the opposite is true: Believing is seeing. Faith takes what we believe and allows the Holy Spirit to awaken our eyes to see it come to pass.
Promise for a Double Portion
The Bible is full of wonderful promises about God’s desire to give His people a “double portion” of blessings, and this must always come as a result of faith. God’s favor is unleashed when we take Him at His word and claim His covenant promises:
Because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you (Zechariah 9:11-12).
Through faith, prisoners are set free from “the waterless pit” and instead they become “prisoners of hope.” There may be trials along the way, but God promises, “I will restore double to you.”
Another principle of double portion faith is that we must expose the lies and thievery of the enemy. Exodus 22:4 (MSG) says, “If caught red-handed with the stolen goods…the thief pays double.”
This is great promise! The devil is a thief, intent on stealing our health, possessions, relationships, peace of mind, or anything else he can. However, when we catch him in his schemes, this verse teaches we can expect to be repaid double for our trouble!
Double Honor and Joy
Isaiah 61:7 promises:
Instead of your shame you shall have double honor,
And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs.
Take a moment and let these words sink into your heart. Are you dealing with feelings of guilt and shame? Through the blood of Jesus, your shame can be replaced with forgiveness and “double honor.” Are you struggling with confusion? The Lord wants to replace it with His double portion of provision and “everlasting joy.”
Friend, I’m praying for you to cast off Satan’s lies and believe God’s Word today. Your double portion is closer than you’ve ever dreamed!
