Biblical Reflections: Isaiah 61:1

Isaiah 61:1 – The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Are you bowed down with grief? Is your heart broken? Do you feel imprisoned, bound by troubles? If so, then Jesus has good news for you.

Jesus Christ came to carry captivity captive and declare the liberty found only in Him. When we come to Him with our griefs, our heartbreak, and our troubles, He does not turn us away. Rather, He sympathizes with our condition (Hebrews 4:14-16). He lifts us up out of the miry clay (Psalm 40:1-2).

I pray that the Lord blesses you with His presence today. Trust Him. He saves us not only from our sins but from every manner of tribulation as we put our faith in Him everyday. Run to Jesus.
