Word for the day “Be Released today”

Luke 4:18 (NLT) “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free,

Some people go through life excusing their shortcomings because of some disadvantage they’ve had stacked against them. Others have grown up in great families and circumstances of great advan­tage and privilege. They’ve had less in their lives to overcome and less occasion to stumble.  Wherever, you fit in the circumstances of life, you will still need overcoming power, and this is a decision we all have to make.

If you’re one who hasn’t had these benefits and you’ve had a dis­advantage or two to overcome, you may feel angry, resentful, and even ashamed as a result. If so, I have two important things to say to you: first, your feelings are certainly understandable. Sec­ond, despite the fact that you may have some resentful feelings that are justified, you simply must let go of those feelings or they will surely and slowly eat you alive.

Letting go is so simple and at the same time so hard to do. Daily, we face the same challenge, the challenge to surrender is a decision and choice we make. Surrender your will, your power, your bitter, angry feelings of resentment to God. Empty yourself so God’s Spirit can come and fill the void. You can be released today it’s your decision and your choice.

Release any resentment you may be harboring about the hurt inflicted on you by others or by the failures of others to help you in the past. See if God won’t respond to your surrender like only God can. Todays Word just simply shares why Jesus came to earth in the first place, so that we could be released from any and everything that hindered our relationship with Him.  I am praying for you today sisters and brothers “Be Released today”
