The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach 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. ~Isaiah 61:1~

My Child,

>I have equipped you to bring good news to a needy world-to bandage broken hearts and unlock prison doors. The needy ones are all around you. Your coworker at the next desk may desperately need a friend. Invite her or him to have coffee with you. The person who styles your hair may be going through a heartbreaking divorce. Chech on them between appointments. Invite them to church or to lunch. The widow in the next block may be recovering from surgery and may be unable to drive. Take her grocery shopping or offer to do her shopping. In simple way, you can begin to reach out and love my world for me right where you are.

The Lord Who Anoints You,
