Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19 
    to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”


Recently I saw a young man and asked if I could pray for him.  He said, "No thank you."  I walked away but I just couldn't shake the feeling that he REALLY needed the Lord.   I went back and asked again, and again he declined.

I just wanted to yell, "SIR DON'T YOU KNOW, I HAVE SOMETHING YOU NEED!"  "I HAVE THE ANSWERS TO EVERY ONE OF YOUR PROBLEMS!"

The Lord reminded me in that moment that He gave us a freewill, another one of His beautiful gifts to us, so I left the man alone.

I so badly wanted that man to know the truth.  I wanted him to know the good news- that the poor don't have to be poor, the sick don't have to be sick, the defeated can live victoriously, the sad can live with joy!  I wanted to see him set free!

I want the world to know the truth!

As Christians, we have the answers, we have the power of GOD living INSIDE of us!

Live victorious, friends!

Blessings,
Ally
