"And you, because of My blood covenant with you, I’ll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells. Come home, hope-filled prisoners! This very day I’m declaring a double bonus—everything you lost returned twice-over!" (Zechariah 9:11-12 MSG)
God’s economy doesn’t work the same way ours does, which is clearly seen in the Bible, and in today’s Word. When God sets someone free from their prison, He first starts with giving them hope. Then He restores them, and often better than they had been before they became imprisoned. When Job lost everything due to Satan’s testing, God restored it all back to him, and then more.
So every time you read the word HOPE in the Bible, friend? Can I encourage you to add those two words after it, “THEN MORE?” Because God doesn’t just stop at setting us free, and giving us hope. There is a THEN MORE coming for you too if you follow Him, and not just in eternity!
