Today, God has Good News for the oppressed! And He has anointed me to bring this Good News to you; the same authority Jesus has, He gave it to me (Luke 10:19) - so God is using me today to give you this word. Listen with your spiritual ears today at what God is saying to you. He loves you very much and He want to set you free today; He has already made provisions for your freedom – just accept it. But, you cannot be free without accepting Jesus; there is no way you can be free without the One sets you free. Listen to God’s heart concerning you:
1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
And the sons of the foreigner
Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But you shall be named the priests of the LORD,
They shall call you the servants of our God.
You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
And in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor,
And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs.
8 For I, the LORD, love justice;
I hate robbery for burnt offering;
I will direct their work in truth,
And will make with them an everlasting covenant" (KJV - www.biblegateway.com).
This is the year of God’s favor for YOU! Give God your pain; give Him all your cares because He loves you and care for you. God wants to give you His Divine exchange TODAY! His Divine exchange is:
“Beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; so you may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified”(v3). He is waiting for you to give Him your shame and disgrace (I know, I felt it too) and He will give you double portions of your inheritance and everlasting joy; you are descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (v7). God “…will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm…” (Joel 2:25). God said, “…ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in midst of Israel (not only is He in the midst of Israel but He is in the midst of you and your situation) and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and My people shall never be ashamed” (Joel 2:26-27 – www.biblegateway.com).
You see God reiterated in verses 26 and 27 that “My people shall never be ashamed;” He means it. So don’t worry about what you lost or will lose because God is going to restore what you need back to you. I said what you need because some of the stuff you are worrying about, you don’t need. God is going to cause you to rebuild some “ancient ruins and restore place long devastated…even the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations” (Isaiah 61:4).
God not only have the capability to restore things and buildings but He can and will restore your temple (body) by the power of the Holy Spirit; God can do anything but fail.
And most of all, once you accept God’s Divine exchange, in His faithfulness, God will reward you and make an everlasting covenant with you (Isaiah 61:8). God is waiting on you to come to Him; you are not waiting on Him – He has been ready to give you this Divine exchange – do it today!
