Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee…He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. Luke 4:14-30
Even with our eyes wide open temptation has no beginning and no end in this world. Who among us has not wanted to give up, and surrender? The key is knowing to what you are giving up and surrendering. WWJD? Give up, the physical, and surrender to God. Captive, blind, and oppressed no more unless we choose to be. Boldly we must continue to chip away at the things which incarcerate our surroundings, cover our eyes and prevent us from moving in the direction God intends us to go. When Jesus left the wilderness, he went to the synagogue and claimed his purpose for the benefit of anyone who had ears to listen. To the glory of God, speak the Word and claim your purpose today. Don’t worry that some may want to “throw you off a cliff.” do your part and God will surely do his.
‘Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:21
