For those who is in Zion; to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, festive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair. And they will be called righteous trees, planted by the LORD to glorify him. Isaiah 61:3

The very first time I heard the above scriptures being read by a pastor in a funeral ceremony many years ago, I knew there were more revelations to the passage, hence i saved it on my device and spent quality time to study and meditate on it via different translations and bible based publications, part of which I'll be sharing in today's article.

No doubt, God's promises of replacing Ashes with Beauty in Isaiah 61:3 is relieving and comforting too, But there's a duty you must uphold, it's a substitution plan where you release all your ashes (challenges, worries, ugly situations) on the alter of prayers and constant meditation on His word, allowing God to decorate your life with his Extraordinary Beauty, hallelujah! Often times some Christians hold on to their ashes; the pains of betrayal, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job and other challenges, and then, they start wondering why their lives hasn't changed for the better and may likely begin to doubt God's promises. 

Esteemed reader, you may have gone through or still facing turbulent situations, you may have been engulfed with fiery trials, difficulties in various degrees to mention a few, I encourage you this day to lay your all on the alter, let go of the ashes and let God decorate you with His unfading Beauty, only Him has the power and wisdom to Beautify, Renew, Recharge, Rewire, Renovate, Restore and Elevate you! Seek Him daily, stick to His word, meditate on it and apply it daily in your life, and quoting the powerful words of God I tell you with certainty, even as a beneficiary, that: "When you stick to God's Word, you'll come back with a Testimony". Hallelujah!!!

 Do Have A Beautiful Week
