11-2-15 The Spirit of the Lord

Spirit of the Lord

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound

Isaiah 61:1 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The Spirit of the Lord is with you now,

The same upon Isaiah and in Christ;

When you called Jesus Savior to avow

The Holy Ghost became within you spliced.

The Comforter that Jesus spoke about,

The power that brought Him back from the dead

Can work through you, of that there is no doubt,

To preach the gospel to the meek ahead.

The Holy Ghost can bind a broken heart,

Bring liberty to captives bound in sin.

Obedience to Jesus sets apart,

And love will let the miracles begin.

Be clear, it isn’t you that does these things;

The Spirit of the Lord the Savior brings.

12-2-14 Fulfilled

scripture fulfilled

When Jesus read God’s words Isaiah wrote

The scripture was fulfilled complete that day.

His very life that passage would promote,

And His disciples now the same convey.

The Savior came to save those lost in sin,

And in His name prepare them for the same,

To preach the gospel to the poor within

And set at liberty the bruised and lame.

The follower of Jesus does the work

He is anointed by the Lord to do.

There is no time to dawdle or to shirk;

The harvest is abundant, workers few.

Fulfill that scripture, too, with all your heart;

Let Jesus move within you from the start.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;

he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,

to preach deliverance to the captives,

and recovering of sight to the blind,

to set at liberty them that are bruised,

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 4:18,19 KJV (Isaiah 61:1,2)

8-22-14 Brokenhearted

brokenhearted

This world is filled with sorrow, death and pain,

And it will break your heart ten thousand times.

You suffer grief and tears fall down like rain;

Such agony and torments seem like crimes.

These are the times when Christ is close to you;

He bears such love to heal your broken heart.

He knows exactly what you’re going through;

Unlike the others He will not depart.

The mean and cruel can crush your spirit down;

You feel so poor and mean in your own eyes.

Reach out your weary arms, He’s all around.

The Saviour mends your soul and soothes your cries.

            You’re not alone, just feel His presence near;

            Lean into Jesus, He will calm your fear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18 NIV
