“The Spirit of the Lord is on Jesus, because He has anointed Him to preach freedom to the captives! – see Isaiah 61
A large part of my testimony is about God’s redemptive power! As a young child, I was sexually abused. Because of this early trauma, I have sought the Lord over years for freedom from bondage in my life. I have discovered that God is a God of redemption – He can take the most broken places and heal them, can bring release, can set us free from demonic uncleanness, AND can then use these experiences for His glory.
Most often, He seems to use other people in our faith community to help us in our journey into wholeness. Without significant relationships God has placed in my life, I know I wouldn’t have been able to receive God’s grace.
Further on in this Isaiah passage, The Lord says that those whom He released, healed, delivered etc. – “THEY will rebuild the ancient ruins and the places that have been devastated for generations!” God wants to bring you freedom, but He also wants to use your scars to liberate others! Who is in your Christian community? Who are you doing life with? AND…who does God want to impact through your story of God’s transforming activity in your life?
Because of His grace,
Pastor of Missions & Worship
