To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion–to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit–that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3 AMP

The cross where Jesus died was the place of divine exchange. He took our ashes and gave us His beauty. He came to make our lives beautiful.

Today don’t settle for anything less than the Word of God. No matter how you feel or what the devil may trying to do. Refuse to accept it in Jesus name.

Thank God Almighty for the substitution power of the cross. Renounce every sadness in or around your life and declare the Joy and beauty of the Lord in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Your sun shall no more go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.” Isaiah 60:20 AMP

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your word. I thank You for given me beauty for ashes. I declare that the day of my mourning is ended and my season of beauty and rejoicing has come in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
