Suppose you received a red BMW for your birthday. You were given the keys and permission to take the car anywhere you pleased. You held the keys gingerly in your hand and admired the beautiful car. But you never drove it. Maybe you were afraid of crashing the car. Maybe you felt you didn't deserve the car. But, for whatever reason, you never drove it. How good would it be to have the keys to a BMW and never drive it?
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. Isaiah 61:3 NIV
