Wellspring’s Year Verse: “Proclaim the Year of the Lord’s Favor!”
Wellspring’s Year Verse for 2020: “Proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” – Luke 4:19
We are already three weeks into this New Year of 2020. By now most of us are used to writing the new date. Some of our resolutions may by now not only be broken, but long forgotten. The New Year may already seem old by now, but we still have 49 weeks to go in 2020 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor over our life together at Wellspring. This powerful phrase comes from Luke 4:19. Jesus was in His home synagogue in Nazareth, reading from the scroll of Isaiah chapter 61, verse two. Upon reading these powerful words Jesus sat down and declared, “Today this word is fulfilled in your hearing.” In other words, Jesus brings the favor of God’s Kingdom to earth and it is available for us now. That statement is still in effect.
We are proclaiming God’s favor over all that is before us in 2020. God’s blessing, God’s grace, God’s increase, God’s power, God’s healing, God’s restorative work, are all expressions of God’s favor. To proclaim God’s favor involves speaking it out in prayer, declaration and action.
Join us in proclaiming the Lord’s favor over His people and work here at Wellspring for 2020.
