Podcast #210: “He Will” by Ellie Holcomb

Savoring the Promises of God in Isaiah 61

The waiting. When it’s laced with anticipation and excitement, it can add to the experience. When it’s laced with sorrow and weariness, it can bring us low. There are so many promises of God in Scripture that have been fulfilled, are being fulfilled, and will be fulfilled. Ellie Holcomb’s song, “He Will” leads us to a prophesy in Isaiah that Christ has fulfilled, is fulfilling, and will fulfill.

This Week’s Challenge

Read Isaiah 61 on your own or with a friend! Spend some time looking closely at it. Make a list of what Jesus says “He will” do. Then make a list of what we will do as a “planting of the Lord.” If you’re really adventurous this week, follow some of the cross references to see where else they take you in Scripture.
