Men’s Devotion: May 11, 2015

Luke 4:18, 19, NKJV

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to
the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; To
proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Praying the Promises for Deliverance

On one of Jesus’s visits to the synagogue He was invited to read the scripture. He chose
to read from Isaiah 61:1, 2—the passage above. Once Jesus read the passage Jesus made
it clear to the people attending on that day that He was the fulfillment of Isaiah’s
prophecy. The good news for us today is that Jesus is still the one to deliver us from
our sin and bondage. We can be free from sin and controlling life habits they will
eventually destroy us. So I pray, “Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord is on You to anoint You
to preach good news to me. You proclaim freedom for me from the prison of sin. You remove
my spiritual blindness and bring me sight. You bring release to me when I am oppressed. I
receive Your deliverance and liberty today.”
