Verse of the Day: Isaiah 61:1-2a


Isaiah 61:1-2a (NIV).

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn ………

Thoughts on This Verse…

Jesus read this passage at a synagogue in Nazareth to describe his ministry (see Luke 4). He came to preach good news, to bind up, to bring deliverance, to offer release, to proclaim grace, and to offer comfort. If Jesus has sent us into the world as the Father sent him (John 20:21-23), shouldn’t we be teaching and serving as he did?

 

It is time NOW to begin to CLAIM the Jesus within us, as PRESENT… that he may use us to radiate into a hurting world. At the core centre of who we are… is the KNOWING that we all have the RIGHT to CLAIM our place as CHILDREN of GOD!! : Mystiic

The night i first started writing, i was given a verse from Jeremiah, the first chapter and verses 1 to 1o, and also the 22nd psalm verses 9 and 10, they are inscribed on my heart! so that is why i am moved to do what i do and write what i write…for He is always with me, present each precious day of life! And His life annoints my spirit each day! Lovely post my sister!
