Isaiah 61:1-3 The Year of the Lord’s Favor

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,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord

    for the display of his splendor.

year of the lord's favor

(c) Beth Moore
I have found favor in God’s eyes.  I am completely delivered!  I have been set free!  The chain of death has been broken.  The stronghold have been put to death.  By the precious blood of Jesus Christ, I have been cleansed.  I am a new creation.  I am a new being!  By the love of God, I am reconciled back to Him!
