God our Healer

This devotion is written today by the heart of Pat James in hopes of comforting those who need comfort. For those who need freedom. For those that need encouragement and for those who just need to be loved.  As you read I pray the Holy Spirit will penetrate your heart and gods words will heal you.

     Isaiah 61:1 - The spirit of The Lord is upon me,
                          Because the spirit of the LORD has anointed me
                          To bring good news to the afflicted;
                          He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
                          To proclaim liberty to the captives
                           And freedom to prisoners;
                    V.2  To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD
                           And the day of vengeance of our God;
                           To comfort all who mourn,
                    V3.  To grant those who mourn in Zion, 
                           Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
                           The oil of gladness instead of mourning, 
                           The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
                           So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
                           The planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

Jesus quoted these words in Luke 4:18-19. In verse 21 of this same chapter he said "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your ears". Of course the people in the synagogue did not understand what he meant, but Christian people today do because we are on the other side of the finished work of Christ. Receive the GOOD NEWS today that God LOVES YOU right where you are and he wants to heal your every need.
