For 2016, the Lord has put on my heart to pray Isaiah 61 for our sweet fellowship of believers. In Luke 4, Jesus read aloud the words of Isaiah 61: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Isaiah 61). Jesus then said, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:21). When He said that, Jesus was proclaiming the year of the Lord’s favor. Later, Jesus died, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day RETURN. Until then, you and I are continually living in the year of the Lord’s favor. WE JUST NEED TO REMEMBER, BELIEVE, AND LIVE THIS TRUTH.
In 2016, will you join me in a few simple steps as we seek to live in the year of the Lord’s Favor:
Grace to you,
