HE LIFTS US UP: Good News for the Oppressed

Good News for the Oppressed

and this proclamation is real.

For Christ came to comfort the broken…

to set free and to heal.

 Isaiah 61:1-3

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
    for the Lord has anointed me
    to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
    and to proclaim that captives will be released
    and prisoners will be freed.
He has sent me to tell those who mourn
    that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,
    and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
To all who mourn in Israel,
    he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
    festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
    that the Lord has planted for his own glory.”

Dear Lord, we thank You for all that You have done for us. You are our Healer, our Deliverer, our Redeemer, our Everything!! You give us beauty for ashes and fill us with Joy. You give us Peace that surpasses all understanding.  Help us to be steady like the great oaks with deep roots that we will remain steady through all storms, holding onto You to overcome all obstacles… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
