"The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD." Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing." (Luke 4:18-21)
Today we wrap up our series on Grace Powered Living. I hope it's messed with your mind and emotions in all the best ways.
Today I want to speak life and hope to you. I want to speak to the part of you that in any way feels poor, brokenhearted, captive, blind, or or bruised.
If you carry a wound that limits you.
If you carry a trauma that defines you.
If you carry a memory that haunts you.
I want you to know today that God the Father has anointed Jesus Christ by the power of God the Holy Spirit to draw near to you, personally. Jesus Christ has been sent to you bring to you good news, healing, recovery, and liberty.
Please think with me today on the topic:
I believe in the healing power of God, physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, mentally, financially, sexually, personally, interpersonally. In every way you can imagine, the grace of God can saturate a situation and bring supernatural healing to bear.
God can and does heal broken bodies, but he more often heals broken hearts by the power of Jesus Christ.
I'm going to read Isaiah 61:1,2 out loud but leave Luke 4:18-20 on the screen.
