(Jesus speaking) “… God’s Spirit is on me; he’s chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free, to announce, “This is God’s year to act!” (Luke 4:20 MSG)
We can easily dismiss these words if we’re thinking that we’re relatively OK financially, or that we have everything together in our lives, but if we look at Scripture, we see that we’re truly the poorer unless we seek to hold and possess GOD’s Wisdom.
Also, unless we give our cravings and lusts to the Lord to deal with, we’ll always be prisoners and enslaved to them.
And blindness doesn’t just cover the physical condition here. There’s a much more insidious side to us where we can actually see something isn’t right - but ‘choose‘ to be blind to it.
Child of the Living GOD, TODAY is GOD’s time to act - His time to set the burdened and battered free! We only have to humble ourselves and choose His Life - not be content with our version of it …!
Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me; Cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I’m about; See for yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong— then guide me on the road to eternal life. (Psalm 139:23). ❤️
