Isaiah 61

Isaiah 61 is a refreshing chapter that tells us of the calling Isaiah has.  He tells us: “He sent me to preach good news to the poor, heal the heartbroken, Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners”.  Isaiah knew his calling and his mission.  How about you?  Do you know what God wants to do with your life?  Do you know what God has called you to do?  God has a plan for each of us – a plan that is specific and detailed just like the calling that Isaiah had.  Do you know what that is?  So many people move through life never even taking the time to seek God’s will for their life – to understand what His desire is.  He wants us to experience life fully – and that happens when we walk where He wants us to be. 

 

That joy is expressed by Isaiah in this chapter.  I will sing for joy in GOD, explode in praise from deep in my soul”.  When is the last time you sang praise to God loudly?  Does it happen in the shower, or driving down the road?  We were created to praise Him.  We were given the ability to find joy in our relationship.  God wants us to express it.  Another one of those things we let busyness crowd out.  Or the possible embarrassment of being overheard?  We need to let God know how much we love Him.  We need to express our joy and explode.  Oh that all of us could know His plan and then express our joy openly and deeply from our soul.  Such a picture of the wonderful life God wants for each of us.  Have you found it?  Do you have it?  If not, don’t settle for less.  It is what God has in store.  We need to seek Him.  When we do scripture tells us we will find Him when we seek Him with all our heart.
