Bind up the broken-hearted // 22-06-21

“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 broken-hearted…” Isaiah‬ ‭61:1‬ ‭NIV

This is the beginning of a passage of Scripture that Jesus chose to read as he publicly launched his ministry, a passage that He said was fulfilled that very day, identifying Himself as the One spoken about in Isaiah, laying out what He had come to do, to bring a message of good news, to ‘bind up the broken-hearted.’ So many of us know what it is to have a heart broken into pieces, wounded, cut up, and yet Jesus has the power and ability to wrap around us, to bind up, to literally hold that heart together and make it whole again! How amazing is that? Lord, thank You for Your love, would you wrap it around those I know today whose hearts are breaking, and hold them secure in that love. Amen ❤️
