Planting a forest of oaks.
“1The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim 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, 2to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3and 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.”
Shouldn’t we be like Isaiah? He prophesied about what was to come, but we know what came – Christ. Is there anything Isaiah said that Christ didn’t?
Plant some oaks today. You might not see the forest you helped God plant, but a forest it will be.
