A Daily Devotion for Thursday, Dec. 10


Isaiah 61:1-4


Verse 1: 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 proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

I read one brief commentary this morning that steered me to something I never would pick up on my own. These verses are the same verses Jesus reads in Luke 4:18-19 while in the synagogue. After he finishes he says to the people, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Statements from Jesus clarifying exactly who he is are so precious to me, and now I have another! I am so thankful to God for giving us His Word to lead us to the truth, and for providing the Holy Spirit to us for strength and direction.


Holy Lord, during this Advent season I am learning more about you. I thank you, God for stretching me, and for providing me with new hope every day. It is never too late to grow closer to you and today you have shown me this again. Thank-you, Father. Amen
