Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope;
even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.
The first time I read this verse, I was frankly unimpressed. I didn’t really understand what the Lord was declaring in these words. But think about it for a second, “I will restore twice as much to you.” WHAT?!
Can you imagine your teacher saying, “Don’t worry about the points you lost on this test, I’m going to give you back double.” I can’t!
Is our Lord not amazing that He has promised to give back to us two times what we have lost. How deep the Father’s love for us.
