A couple of verses that really touch my heart.

Isaiah 61:1-3

The Year of the LORD’s Favor

1 The 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,[a]
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and 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.

For the display of His splendour, wow all things are done for the glorifying of our Lord. These verses really support the work that God does in us and the favour of the Lord has when we walk in His ways, and follow the righteous path set before us. “They will be called oaks of righteousness”. Praise Jesus.

I find in hard times, in struggles and when facing adversity that these verses in Isaiah really encourage me to seek peace in a turbulent life.
