The Double Portion Blessing!

4 05 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn this post, we continue exploring the gifts we receive from God through our prayer relationship.  The first gift was love, the second peace, the third revelation. These gifts come over and over again, strengthening and encouraging as you become whom He created you to be. The fourth gift is provision which we looked at last time. Today will look at the fifth gift, the double portion blessing.


(You can begin reading the entire series by visiting our post dated April 9th. We pick up the prayer shawl story where we left off last time.)


I had learned so much more than I ever expected from this new prayer shawl, so as I looked to create a head covering by twisting and then pulling the materialdouble portion over my head  I discovered the fifth gift, the double portion blessing.


As we receive the gift of provision we can become overwhelmed by the depth of God’s love for us, because his provision goes so much deeper than material things. His love and provision have an aspect which ministers to us emotionally and spiritually.


There is something simply amazing which I have witness over and over again as I twist the shawl, putting it over the person’s head a second time. It brings with it a deeper level of love, trust, security and intimacy, the first portion.  Then as they lift the edge of the shawl they come under the protective covering which is the second part of the blessing!  Speaking personally it is like nothing I have ever experienced before.


As I end this story of the prayer shawl I hope you are encouraged by the amazing blessings and gifts which are ours as we reach out to God in prayer!
