“The Spirit of ADONAI is upon me because he has anointed me to announce Good News to the poor; he has sent me to proclaim freedom for the imprisoned and renewed sight for the blind, to release those who have been crushed, to proclaim a year of the favour of ADONAI.” Luke 4:18-19
ANNOUNCE GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR
Breaking out of poverty is hard! And boy, don’t I know it. You can have a job and still be poor — living one paycheck away from being homeless. You are gifted, educated and talented; but nothing works out for you. You limit yourself, doubt yourself and discourage yourself. Why? Because …
Poverty, like many have said, is a mindset! It is also a curse and a spirit that binds generations.
But wait, I have news for you, Good News! You don’t have to choose poverty. Yeshua has already broken the curse of poverty and provided all that you need for life and godliness. All that is needed is a change in your thinking. The change starts in your mind. You can change your mindset! You can break out of the cycle! Take on the mind of Christ — align your thoughts and your actions will follow. It is hard, it requires work, but you can do it! How do I know? Because I did it and continue to work towards it EVERY DAY. And you can too!
There is hope! Not hope that in the life to come you will have yourjust Reward. No. YHVHdesires for youto live your best life NOW, which will carry over into eternity. You are destined for more! There is more waiting for you, a brighter future than what is in front of you right now! Stop settling for less than what could and should be. Arise in hope, arise in faith. Lift yourself up! You can do this!
That ability, that passion, that desire can make your future. So what if someone else is doing it already? You can do it in a way that no one else can! No, everything does not have to be aligned right before you start. Where you come from has no say in who you are and where you can go.
Your past only shows how strong you are. Your present indicates your resilience. Your future is waiting for you to be great!
PROCLAIM FREEDOM FOR THE IMPRISONED
Do you know that you are free!? Whatever is holding you captive has been unshackled by the power and person of Yeshua the Messiah. You don’t have to be limited anymore. You don’t have to be delayed anymore. You don’t have to be denied anymore.
Freedom has been made available, it is here and it is yours. Walk in it! Be it!
Freedom from the shackles of the mind that tells you that you are not good enough; that tells you that you do not have what it takes; that tells you that you cannot do it; that tells you that you do not deserve it. Freedom from shackles caused by fear, disappointments, rejection, hurt and pain. Freedom from shackles that prohibit your movement and progress; that brings limitations and delays. Embrace liberty in every area of your life. Be bold, be strong, be courageous. You have gifts and abilities untapped, talents undiscovered hidden in you. You are NOT limited!
PROCLAIM RENEWED SIGHT FOR THE BLIND
Renewed as an adjective means to give fresh life or strength to. Fresh insight, fresh discernment, fresh vision, fresh outlook are yours. Where you have been weak, wearied, burnt out strength has been released to bring a freshness to propel you upward and onward.
According to Webster’s dictionary blind also means defective – lacking a growing point or producing leaves instead of flowers. In every area of unproductiveness, strength is release for production and fruitfulness. Whatever is faulty, lacking or deficient can be realigned.
There is a freshness that will turn every fault flawless; every lack abundant; and every deficiency sufficient.
RELEASE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN CRUSHED
Are you burdened and weighed down by many cares, struggles and difficulties? A release has come to you! It is available for all who are crushed. Whether you are crushed in mind, body, soul or spirit, the Spirit of YHVH offers the enablement, ability and grace to escape every confinement. Weight keeps us back but the Lifter is here to pick you up and cause you to soar. Cast your cares on YHVH for He cares for you. Take his yoke for it is easy and his burden is light.
Have faith and release fear.
PROCLAIM A YEAR FOR THE FAVOUR OF YHVH
This is the year for the favour of YHVH — this year, next year and every year! Arise with a victorious mind! Stop waiting and start doing. Say “LORD, this is what I have to work with. Can you work with me?” and watch Him work not just with you but in you and through you!
