Exchange the Garment
If this word is for you then receive (take) it! “I was awaken early this morning to this: I saw some people changing their garments! These people had been carrying around a spirit of heaviness. This was due to many things that had happened or was happening in their lives. Things had left them in a broken state. It had brought on disappointment, disillusionment, broken-heartedness, hopelessness, struggle, loss, devastation, etc. These people were bound in a captivity; locked up in their own private prison; screaming out for a deliverance to come in their life. They were crying out for a real change in their life. All of a sudden, the light shined upon their hearts and they realized that they had tried to get their transformation by what they could do, instead of what Jesus has already done for them. I saw them touched by the hand of God and they began to throw off that which they had been clothed in; that which had been keeping them from experiencing freedom in Jesus! The moment it started coming off, there was an exchanged made for a garment of praise. These people were jumping and leaping with such exuberant joy because they had finally been set free.”
Is that you? Have you been in that condition? Broken? Disappointed? Disillusioned? Broken-hearted? Struggling? Devastated? Experienced loss? Etc.? Have you felt that your life has been in a private prison and needing a deliverance? Have you been crying out for a change in your life? If so, this word is for you! It may seem that it is impossible to experience the change needed, but there is hope in Jesus Christ! The truth is, there is not anything impossible, when God gets involved! Have you invited Him into your life to get involved? It does not matter how long you have been in that condition. You need to believe that all things are possible with Him! The Great Jehovah God Almighty takes great pleasure in setting the captives free. You can experience this freedom now, because Jesus has already paid for it in full! I encourage you to make the exchange! Let Jesus get involved and trade your garments for a life of freedom! Your sadness can be changed to gladness! Jesus will give you beauty for your ashes!
Isaiah 61:1-3 (AMP) says, “(1)The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me. To bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, to proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives and freedom to prisoners, (2)To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, to comfort all who mourn, (3)To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: To give them a [c]turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
