154. GIVE MEE A DOUBLE PORTION
1. Long ago in days of old, stood a man of God we’re told,
As he talked to Elijah that day;
His request he did repeat, standing at Elijah’s feet,
“A double portion” I can hear him say.
Give me, Lord, a double portion,
pour Thy Spirit on me,
Thru eyes of faith Thy wondrous works I can see;
But I need Thy helping hand,
In this troubled, sinful land,
Give me, Lord, a double portion from Thee.
2. As Elijah stood that day, to Elisha he did say,
“Ask me what I shall do unto thee”
And Elisha then replied, walking at Elijah’s side,
“A double portion, let it fall on me.”
3. Lord, I always to Thee pray, just for strength from day to day,
But I see there’s so much to be done,
That I have to kneel a new and this favour ask of You.
A double portion this fight must be won.
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
