When the Spirit Moves… Isaiah’s Take.

When the Spirit of the Lord moves, here is what happens:

The Good news is preached to the poor.

The brokenhearted are comforted.

Captives are set free.

Prisoners are released.

Hope is given to those who mourn.

Our ashes turn to beauty.

Our mourning turns to gladness.

Our spirit of despair is replaced with a garment of praise.

Justice happens.

Joy happens.

People see God has blessed them.

And they are thankful.

We are clothed in salvation and robed in righteousness.

That’s powerful. And mostly verbatim from Isaiah 61. When we let God have His way by letting the Spirit reign, it is good.

Awesome.
