As I have been struggling with my health over the last few months, I am able to say that I have a new sense of dependence upon God as I press in with faith despite what I can not see.
His Word reminds me that He has plans even to use my lowest of moments, and that restoration has always been part of His plans for you & I, friend.
God reminded me earlier today that He doesn’t require us to be perfect to be of use, just available as we are. He is now than capable of filling broken vessels, and giving us purpose along the journey towards our own restoration!
The key? His power & anointing, and our obedience to follow where He leads. You and I can still be works in progress, yet useable in the Kingdom.
Draw comfort and strength from these words come to life in Jesus, if you too are in need of fresh hope or purpose again today.
“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.”
Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 4:14-30
