What Does God Have in Store for You?

As I read Isaiah 61 on Friday morning, a list developed before my eyes. A list of how I am blessed by God. A list of promises for my life. I thought you may be blessed with this encouragement, as well, so I share it with you.

What God has for my life and says about me:

  •  The Spirit of God is upon me, just as He was upon Jesus.
  • I am anointed.
  • I can preach good tidings to the poor.
  • I can bring healing to the brokenhearted through my relationship with Jesus.
  • I can proclaim liberty to the captives.
  • I can open the prison of those who are bound through my testimony and the blood of the Lamb.
  • I can proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
  • I can proclaim the day of God's vengeance.
  • I can comfort those who mourn.
  • I can console those who mourn.
  • I have beauty from ashes.
  • I have the oil of joy for mourning.
  • I have a garment of praise I can put on for a spirit of heaviness.
  • I am a tree of righteousness, the planting of the Lord.
  • I glorify the Lord.
  • I can rebuild the ruined cities.
  • I can raise up the former desolation (restoration).
  • I can repair the ruined cities.
  • I am a priest(ess) of the Lord.
  • I am a servant of God.
  • I eat riches in His kingdom.
  • I have double honor instead of shame.
  • I rejoice in my portion, rather than dwell in confusion.
  • I possess double in my land.
  • I have everlasting joy.
  • God will direct my work in truth.
  • I have an everlasting covenant with the Lord.
  • My descendents shall be known. 
  • All who see my descendants will acknowledge them.
  • My descendants are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.
  • I greatly rejoice in the Lord.
  • My soul is joyful in my God.
  • I am clothed with the garments of salvation.
  • God has covered me with the robe of righteousness. I am a bridegroom bedecked with ornaments, a bride adorned with jewels.
