Isaiah 61: The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
Why do I begin today’s thoughts with this verse? Because per Jesus’s own words in Luke 4:18-19 (take a look) we are blessed to be living within this time. As Isaiah prophesied the Lord has come and has freed us from the bondage of sin.
