Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.

Jesus’ words of His grace and all the power that goes along with them are lovely. Lovely in the fact that He speaks them to fallen flesh who are bound by guilt and corruption. By His grace, we may be freed from these bonds. He came by the word of His gospel to bring light to those in darkness and, by the power of His grace, to give sight to those that are blind. He is sent to comfort all who mourn and seek Him, not the world, for comfort.

Psalm 147:3 He heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds.

Praise the Lord for His grace to outcast sinners, for He brings them into His holy haven. He speaks peace to those who will hear it and assures them that their sins are forgiven. As clouds look dark and melancholy, they provide rain and, therefore, fruit. Our afflictions look bleak and unpleasant, but the grace of Jesus Christ turns our mourning into dancing (Psalm 30:11) and makes the soul yield peaceable fruits of righteousness.

Praise the Lord, for He heals the brokenhearted.
