This morning marks our first day back with our Sunday school class! As Neil and I were leaving the campsite, I noticed a small portal. As we continued driving, we noticed the color intensified, the portal developed not just into just one brilliant rainbow, but a double rainbow!
When I looked up double portion, I found it means someone gets twice as much as what is given to others. It was mentioned six times throughout the Bible. My favorite example is Elisha asking Elijah for a double portion of his spirit to be poured out onto himself. 2 Kings, documents Elisha performing numerous miracles which proves his request was granted!
I am also very fond of Isaiah 61:7 that promises a double portion of joy and blessing upon Israel: “Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.”
