TOPIC: His Beauty For Your Ashes

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 61:1-3 
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

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.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

MFM Daily Devotional 28 February 2024 MESSAGE

The Fire Scripture for today, in verse 3, clearly states a scenario of divine exchange and transformation. God replaces beauty with ashes in the life of His beloved children. All through scriptures, putting ashes on the head signifies a moment of sorrow, as a result of loss, grief or repentance before the Lord by the children of Israel. However, our God brings out the good times from our bad times and makes imperfections perfect by His sovereign power!

Beloved, what are the ash-like situations in your life? How terrible and devastating has it been, so much that it has taken away the beautiful part of your life? God can renew and restore your life for the better. All you need is to come to Him with your heavy load of sorrow, sadness, grief, guilt, betrayal, frustration, lack, sickness, oppression and every of such that has rendered you empty, leaving your life void and hopeless. He will restore hope to you! He will renew your strength and make your life beautiful again. You will rejoice in the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 103:1-5, blessing the Lord for all He has done.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 27 February 2024 – Deliverance Of The Hand (II)

In the book of Esther, God turned the ashes of the Jews to beauty. He gave them victory over the enemy that wanted them dead. Their sorrow was turned into dancing. That was a beautiful turnaround situation! The barren carried their babies: Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth and they rejoiced in God’s presence for giving them beauty in the ashes of barrenness. In Psalm 126, the Psalmist talked about the divine turnaround that looked like a dream. This can only be done by the Lord God Almighty! He gave them joy instead of weeping; singing and dancing instead of sorrow, harvest instead of drought; they all rejoiced in the Lord who can turn around situations for good. God is still in this business!

Are you ready for this divine experience? You need to surrender your life to Jesus. Only Him can bring about this turnaround experience. Become His friend and allow Him to do His work in your life by the power of the Holy Spirit. Let Him remove your ashes, your garment of shame and humiliation, and clothe you with His garment of glory and power as well as His beauty in place of your ashes.
