Your Time For Double Honour
I Peter 2:6 NKJV "Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, 'Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.'"
David prayed, "To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause." (Psalm 25:1-3). The good news is that in Christ, we will never be put to shame. I'm not saying this just to excite you; I'm not being paid to preach to you so I'm not pressurized to say nice things to you; it's the word of God; you will never be put to shame!
Romans 10:11-13 says, "For the Scripture says, 'Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.' For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For 'whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'" Hallelujah!
The Lord is rich to all! He doesn't discriminate; He doesn't select who He will bless and who He won't; He has no favourite children; what He does for one He is willing to do for you and everyone else who calls upon His name. He said that whoever believes on Him will never be put to shame: so shall it be for you in the name of Jesus! Isaiah 61:7 says that instead of your shame you shall have double honour. From today, double honour is your portion in Jesus name! Amen.
