Scripture for the Day (October 22, 2015)

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward. Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. (Isaiah 58:6-11)

We have shared Isaiah 58 with you so many times in the past. It is a wonderful promise from God to all of us. All we have to do is do it! We are on the brink of a mighty breakthrough. We invite you to come with us on an exciting journey that will be founded on the principle of giving HOPE to the hopeless.The following are the words to a song that we recently shared that captures the heart of where we are headed.

YOU STAND (by Jeffrey Smith)

For the broken hearted, For the ones who are alone

For the weary stranger, For the ones without a home

You stand, You stand

For the ones who’ve been oppressed, For the ones without a voice

For the ones without a choice

You stand. You stand

Your arms are open wide, Your love is abounding

A hiding place, With the enemy surrounding

You stand

My sisters. My brothers, All nations, All colors, Every soul

You stand

The hungry, abandoned will someday see you standing Lord

You stand, You stand
