Hebrews 1:9 (Pt. 2)

Thought/Prayer:  The Oil of Joy

In reference to Jesus, we read, “You love justice and hate evil.
Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you,
pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”

We read of the oil of joy in Isaiah also:  Isaiah 61:3

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

In the fight for LIFE, we often mourn the losses.  We mourn for mothers whose lives have been greatly altered because of abortion; we mourn for the babies who never got to see light on earth; and we mourn for families who mourn the loss of a grandchild or niece or nephew from abortion.

But God tells us that He will give us the oil of joy instead of mourning.  Christ Himself has been honored with the oil of joy by God.  How great is this oil! 

Surely the oil would be pungent with fragrance of some type.  Possibly it could be very costly, in honor of those upon whom it is poured.  Pray today that joy will attend those who honor the preborn – not a supernatural, but a God-natural gift of oil in the Spirit.

Pray for joy to permeate those in the pro-life fight, even an unexplainable joy in the face of discouragement.
