Break my Heart for what breaks Yours!
Inside|Out Inspirational Devotion
BY NICOLA MCFADDEN, NIKIMAC
Lord, give me your eyes to see through your lens with grace. Lord, give me the heart of Christ to seek your Kingdom first, to truly love others, to serve unselfishly, and to give sacrificially. Lord let my actions, words, thoughts, decisions, and attitude bear Your name. Lord, empty me of me and fill me with you. Help me not to feed my own flesh, ego, and greed but to feed Your Spirit in me. Let there be less of me, O Lord, and more of you. Help me to be less self-centered and more God-focused. Help me not to live out of my own selfish desires and selfish-ambition. Lord, help me not to live to the expectations of man but to be accountable to God. Lord, you call us to be salt and light to this World. Lord, it's the Christ in me that is the Hope to a hurting world.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me
To bring good news to the humble and afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted,
To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives
And freedom to prisoners,
To proclaim [a]the favorable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance and retribution of our God,
To comfort all who mourn,
To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following:
To give them a [c]turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning],
The oil of joy instead of mourning,
The garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit.
So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God],
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1-3 AMP)
Lord, You commanded us to love others as ourselves... We need you to teach us how to love... because Lord, I can't but you can.
Lord, let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God. In Jesus name, I pray. AMEN!!
