We have all experienced LOSS on some level. It hurts to lose! Whether it's a broken friendship, a sudden death or a divorce-it's a loss. We mourn. In the Bible times, people would take off their clothes and put on "sackcloth and ashes", these garments symbolized mourning. Are you Mourning a loss today?
Today the Spirit of God spoke four words to me "God gave me beautiful ". He took me to Isaiah 61, the first free verses speak promise and comfort, to a grieving Israel. These words were like a fresh wind over my heart today and I pray they are for you as well.
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.
There will be a great EXCHANGE today! God wants you to give him the ashes, the heaviness, and the mourning-in exchange He will give you Beauty, Joy and Praise!!!! Receive these three by faith today. It is time to rise from your place of mourning and rejoice. Why? So that God will be glorified. God wants to PLANT you, as a tree (trees are visible displays of strength and endurance) of righteousness. It's time for Gods glory to shine through you! Amen
