How to Receive Double for your Trouble


There are several places in the Bible where God promises restoration by giving people double for their trouble.


Double for My Trouble in Zechariah
In Zechariah God says, "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. Today I declare that I will restore double to you." (Zechariah 9:11-12)


Double for My Trouble in Isaiah
In Isaiah God also promises to give His people double for their trouble for He says, "Instead of your shame you shall have double honor and instead of confusion you shall rejoice in your portion. (Isaiah 61:7)

Therefore is you are going through any sort of trouble and you would like God to give you double for your trouble stand on this promise as you do the following:


Enter into Covenant with God
Because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit (Zechariah 9:11)
