Happy 2015! Take holdÂ of the words God is speaking over you for this year. Here’s one:
The Year of the Lordâ€™s Favor – Isaiah 61:1-4
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
Â Â Â Â because the Lord has anointed me
Â Â Â Â to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
Â Â Â Â to proclaim freedom for the captives
Â Â Â Â and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2Â to proclaim the year of the Lordâ€™s favor
Â Â Â Â and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3Â Â Â Â Â and provide for those who grieve in Zionâ€”
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
Â Â Â Â instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
Â Â Â Â instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
Â Â Â Â instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
Â Â Â Â a planting of the Lord
Â Â Â Â for the display of his splendor.
4Â They will rebuild the ancient ruins
Â Â Â Â and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
Â Â Â Â that have been devastated for generations.

A daily â€œworship ritualâ€ I practice is to listen toÂ The Daily Audio Bible podcast, take a photo of the morning sky, find a meaningful scripture or quote (usually from the DAB), and share it on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter.Â Please comment and share!Â #Sunrise #Worship #DevotionalsÂ
