He was sent for you

“He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.” – Isaiah 61:1-3

He cares about your broken heart. He is against your captivity. He wants your mourning to end and your dancing to begin. He takes no pleasure in your despair. He wants joy to be yours.

He wants good things for you. Jesus was sent because the Father is for you, not against you.

Because your Father’s heart is good, and Jesus has come for you.
