Struggling with who you are? Jesus stepped onto the scene over 2000 years ago and told us exactly who we are and who HE is for us!
When I am in need He brings me good news. When I am brokenhearted He brings me comfort. When I am held hostage by fear, depression, or anxiety, When I have been taken prisoner by circumstances, When my history fights to keep me bound, He speaks freedom into my life. He reveals open doors and lights up the path. He is the key. He does not give me the key and then walk away. He shows me how and where to use the key. When I am full of sorrow He covers me with His favor. HE fights for me and delivers me from my enemies. Those ashes of despair I sat upon are turned into a thing of beauty. He forms them into a crown and places it upon my head. BEAUTY for ashes. JOY for sorrow. Heaviness lifted. Instead I wear PRAISE. I am transformed. I am planted. I am an Oak of Righteousness. I am FOR HIS GLORY In turn, Because of HIM I become: A REBUILDER A REVIVOR A RESTORER A MINISTER HONORED PROSPEROUS and JOYOUS HIS righteousness in me will be like a garden in early spring, with plants springing up everywhere.
Based upon Isaiah 61 and Luke 4:18 and 19
