Isaiah 61:7 – For your shame you will have double; and for disgrace they will rejoice in their portion; therefore in their own land they will possess double; everlasting joy will be theirs.
God will anoint you with a double portion this year.
Prayer to God that your problem be swallowed so that you can obtain your victory.
God will so bless you that your problem will be insignificant.
Jabez understood that He needed to seek God to enlarge his territory. He was a man that was the object of mockery by other people, but God changed his destiny when He sought the Lord. He turned what was evil in Jabez’s live for the good because he loved the Lord. The man was so honorable that a city was named after him, the city of Jabez.
1 Chronicles 4:10 – And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that You would bless me indeed, and make my border larger, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, so that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he asked.
God will cause your enemies to change their statements of mockery about you. God will exalt you and you will be a living testimony that Jesus Christ is Lord over your life. He will take you from a nobody and make you into a somebody. It is not by might or by power, it is by His Spirit.
Do not listen to the words of those that have written you off. God has prepared something for you. He has created a table before you in the presence of your enemies.
Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Psalm 103:1-5 – 1 A Psalm of David. Bless Jehovah, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name. 2 Bless Jehovah, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; 3 who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases; 4 who redeems your life from ruin; who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies; 5 who satisfies your mouth with good; your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
God will satisfy you with good things this year. He will give you a new name, a new personality and mindset.
Mark 9:23 – Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.
For you to see a double portion of Honor this year you must:
- You must be connected to God.
In a hurricane, many trees may fall, even an oak tree can fall, but a Palm tree is never uprooted because this tree can withstand any storm.
Make God your Number 1 priority. God is your Source.

John 15:6-8 – 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you. 8 In this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, so you shall be My disciples.
“If you take God for granted, you will be grounded” – Pastor Austyn
