The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, to proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives and freedom to prisoners,
To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: to give them a turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1-3)
Do you desire to be set free? Maybe you find yourself in bondage today, due to your own sin, or the sin of others. You may feel trapped with no way to escape, and you may have given up all hope of finding freedom.
The good news is that Jesus of Nazareth has come to set every captive free. He died on a cross to pay for all of our sins, He was buried, and then He was raised to life again. His death and resurrection were for you, and for me.
Jesus desires to rescue us from the consequences of our sin, and that is why we need Him as our Savior. He also seeks to be the Lord of our lives, so that He can set us on His path of righteousness which will keep our feet from stumbling.
If you find yourself in distress, and you are overwhelmed with grief, then ask Jesus of Nazareth to set you free. He died so that you might live, and His love is the wonderful gift that He desires for you to receive.
Pray With Me:
I ask for you to set me free. Thank you for paying for all of my sin, and for offering me your forgiveness. Would you be my Savior, because I desire to be rescued by you, and would you be my Lord, because I want to follow
I choose to trust in you, as you deliver me out of my captivity so that you can place my feet on solid ground.
Thank you for your love, and in the days ahead, I look forward to you showing me your ways. Amen.
