Isaiah 61:1-3 (AMP) 61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] [a]and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
When we give our life to Christ it does not mean things in life will just change. Our circumstances may be the same but we have a God who will help us to get through those circumstances. People can do things that really, really, hurt us, and unfortunately we cannot change other people only the way we react to those people. The Devil wants us to be angry at people who hurt us and at our situation so we never grow spiritually. If you have been are or in a situation where you are being hurt, you have the power of God in your situation to help you get through the situation and to free your mind and soul. It is important that you do not pass your hurt onto others but heal from your situation.
Walking away from your problem does not get rid of the problem and it does not mean the past has not wounded you. God has great promises for each and every one of us. Jesus has already set us free and we need to learn how to reach out and put into action the promises of God. We can use our past to help others. We need to get to a point where we are ready to forget about our past through God’s help with forgiveness and move on to the great future God has in store for us. It doesn’t mean the past did not happen but it does mean we do not let our past control our future. Each and every one of us are a miracle just waiting to happen.
Isaiah 61:7 (AMP)7 Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
