Jesus Gives Hope and a Future to Those Who are Without It — My Verses for Sat, May 31 (Is 61:1-4)

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me… [to] provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.” Isaiah 61:1a,3-4 (ESV)
