Today’s word is “Garment of Praise”
This is what the Lord showed me today: I was standing on the platform in the sanctuary at church watching people come in for service. As they passed through the doorway to the sanctuary, I saw angels remove their heavy backpacks and drape cloaks around each person. From my viewpoint, it looked as though each person was being wrapped in a blanket or mantle cloak. Not one person entered the sanctuary that did not receive the covering, and when I looked at us on the platform, I noticed we were also wearing them.
I hear the Lord say, “I have removed the spirit of heaviness and given you a garment of praise. I have heard your cries and your supplications and I AM telling you to wear this garment daily. There are places that I will send you and only praise and thanksgiving will reveal the doorway to step through; there are storms on the horizon that My garment of praise will protect you from. I AM perfecting My good work in you, when you wear the garment of praise, you partner with Me in this work and allow it to bear fruit. Wear this mantle well, the enemy will try to remove it and soil it. Remember, I AM with you and you can do all things in My strength.”
Isaiah 61:3, 10-11 “To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified….I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its bud, As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.”
