30 Days of Prayer- Day 27 Scripture and Truth..
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor, He has sent me to proclaim that the captives will be released , that the blind will see, that the oppressed be set free, and the time of the Lord's favor has come.
Scripture meaning- Jesus was proclaiming, that He would be the one bringing this Good News to pass.
You can read more about this in Isaiah -61 NIV -The Spirit of the Lord has taken control of me! The Lord has chosen and sent me to tell the oppressed the Good News , to heal the broken hearted, and to announce freedom from the prisoners and captives. This is the year the Lord God will show His kindness to us and punish our enemies.
You have the same spiritual resources as Jesus had. The Holy Spirit was with Jesus and the Holy Spirit is with all those who believe in Christ. We are to serve God with all our hearts and mind. (And Only Him) We should consistently pray and seek His Will for our lives. Everything apart from God is temporary and meaningless. This doesn't mean that you can't have a fulfilled life; it just means everything apart from God is futile .. Read about Solomon , and you will know exactly what I am referring to- if you haven't caught on already.. ( Solomon Blog) Or You can look it up and read it in The Holy Bible- King James Version)
As you become more Christlike, don't be surprised if you become looked at like a "Jesus freak". Why? Because you No longer love the things of the past, you have a new love for Christ, and the things He loves. Many friends may not understand as they are use to the "old you", and may make fun, and poke at the "new you", nevertheless, don't faultier back into old behavior . Press in, and ask the Holy Spirit to direct your ways. You will be happier in the long run. I promise you this!!
They will be called "Tress of Justice." planted by the Lord to honor His name. Throughout the Bible, trees symbolize people. God gives us His Word and His Word is like water to a tree if you will. We are the tree and He is the Water, ( Life. )He refreshes us each day and as we grow in Him, we become a strong rooted tree- one that produces much healthy fruit.
We can do All things with God who has created us . This does not mean; you will have some magical powers or become rich. This means He created each of us with a purpose, and we should not fear for what is to come, but ask Him to prepare our hearts and mind. The wonderful thing about each of us is; we were all given gifts from God. Some are given the gift to speak, to serve, to care for others, etc.
Some of us may receive wealth , smarts, fame, and looks, but it is up to each of us to use these blessings wisely. Don't hate the life God has given you, but try to find the purpose in your life .. I don't love my life but love the ONE who died (JESUS) and gives life.
Do you know your gift?
I pray each of you know who you are in Christ and live out a fulfilling purposeful life. Lord Jesus , may each of us seeking You find purpose, and meaning in this life. May all those who are sick and depressed, find healing and hope in You Christ Jesus. May we put away our old habits and form new healthy habits through seeking You, and asking for forgiveness, and for You to take up residence in our heart. We thank for your patience Lord Jesus. I pray You will touch every life reading this . In Your precious name Christ , Amen.
Moving Forward With You
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Healthy Spiritually!
