God is exchanging your mourning with rejoicing, and your ashy clothes with beautiful, regal garments!
You have long been in the place of trials, temptations, unbelief, failure, and sin. You stopped believing; you despaired, and feared that the strength to embark on your journey of victory is non-existent. You kept wondering if this difficult season will ever end.
Today is a new day. God is doing something new; listen out for it, expect it, and embrace it (Is 43:18-19).
Put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:13-18).
Even in your valley, resist the lure of sin and worship God now (Psalms 96:9)
Imagine ONLY the good; dwell ONLY on them (Philippians 4:8)
All your failings of yesterday are gone; put them out of your mind and refuse to let the devil put you under his thumb through guilt and self-flagellation. Remember that even though all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory, Jesus gave you a new lease of life, exchanged your ashes with His beauty, and now God sees you as His faultless, sinless, lovely creation! If God therefore does not condemn you, why condemn yourself, or allow anyone else condemn you?
Arise and shine, for your light has indeed come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you (Isaiah 60:1).
I want you to walk majestically as a child of the Most High God; resist the devil, read or listen to the bible daily, and be confident. The siege is over; your battle has been won for you by the Shepherd-King, and unimaginable beauty awaits you!
God has spoken, and His words never fail: You are beautiful; your mourning days are over!
May your joy be full, and may your future be full of victory and blessings!
