Thought to share: I bring you good news. I AM comforting you, healing your broken heart and setting you free. I AM working in you and your circumstances. I AM giving you beauty for ashes and exchanging your mourning for blessing. I AM giving you celebration instead of despair. I give you hope.
So choose to partner with ME in this and let ME do this work in you.
Isaiah 61:1-3 (NLT) 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.
1Peter 1:3-4 (NCV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In God’s great mercy He has caused us to be born again into a living hope, because Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Now we hope for the blessings God has for His children. These blessings, which cannot be destroyed or be spoiled or lose their beauty, are kept in heaven for you.
