Episode 32 - Session in Review Series feat. Rep. Blake Miguez

 

'“This is the kind of fast that I desire: Remove the heavy chains of oppression! Stop exploiting your workers ! Set free the crushed and mistreated! Break off every yoke of bondage! Share your food with the hungry! Provide for the homeless and bring them into your home! Clothe the naked! Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood! Then my favor will bathe you in sunlight until you are like the dawn bursting through a dark night. And then suddenly your healing will manifest. You will see your righteousness march out before you, and the glory of Yahweh will protect you from all harm! Then will answer you when you pray. When you cry out for help, he will say, ‘I am here.’ “If you banish every form of oppression, the scornful accusations, and vicious slander, and if you offer yourselves in compassion for the hungry and relieve those in misery, then your dawning light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will turn into noonday splendor! will always guide you where to go and what to do. He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place. He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever-flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing . Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundations laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities. '

 

Isn’t that a stunning picture of the Lord’s favor, of His forgiveness and faithfulness. He does it at the individual level and He does it for cities and regions and nations. This morning, this is how I see us, our team - LACAG and the State of Freedom - as rebuilders of the ancient ruins, as ones who raise up the age old foundations, as ones who are repairing the breach and and restoring the streets in which to dwell.
