Breaking free

Breaking free 

“The Spirit of Adonai the Lord is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and opening of eyes to these who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, to appoint to those who mourn in Zion to give them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment prayer shawl, of praise instead of the spirit of infirmity so they could be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord so He would be gloried” Isaiah 61:1-3.

And Jesus said “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your ears” Luke 4:21. He can and has done this for you who accepts Him who yields all to Him. 

When you yield to something you will find it has much control over you. If you yield to your want for a new car, it will consume you till you have it. If you yield to self pity, lust of the flesh, lust of the mind (by worries and anxiety or eg.) they will consume you. If you yield to your broken heart it will consume you. When we accept Christ and He lives in us, He will enable us to yield to Him – to be under His sway. This is His good news. He has opened our eyes and freed us and for what purpose? To glorify Him.
