"The Same Answer For All"

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."  Luke 4:18,19

The world is filled with lots of lost people, bound people, discouraged, depressed, sick, weak, fearful, anxious, worried, hurting, lonely, unloved and hopeless people.  But for all these people who are in all these different situations there is one answer.  It applies to all.  That answer is Jesus.

Jesus seeks and saves those who are lost.  He is the way and makes a way for those who can't find their way.  He sets captives free and opens prison doors to those who are bound.  He binds up the broken hearted.  He strengthens the weak.  He lifts up the hands that hang down and are ready to quit and give up.  He is touched by the feelings of our infirmities.  He is a present help in time of trouble.  He is the solid rock upon which we can stand.  He is hope for the hopeless.  He is the peace giver, whose peace is sufficient.  He comforts those who mourn and gives them the oil of joy.  He takes the part of those who fear Him and fights on their behalf.  He gives beauty for ashes.  He exchanges heaviness for praise.  He gives liberty to those who are bruised.  He heals the sick.  He draws near to the beaten and down cast.  He gives mercy and grace to those who have none.  He is with those who are lonely and will never leave nor forsake them.  He is love and lavishes it freely on all who will receive it.   

He is all-sufficient and more than enough for whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are going through and exactly when you need it.  He is the answer for us all.

Have a great day.  There is one answer for everyone regardless of their situation-- His name is Jesus.
