Do you ever have those days when you just want to despair? Maybe you feel sad for no reason or are stressed out with the cares and concerns of life to where you wonder if you can go on. That’s where today’s Bible verse comes in.
and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. – Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)
One of the best things to do when you feel you can’t go on is to praise. Today’s verse tells us that we have a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. That means we have to put on praise like we would with a shirt. We put on praise instead of feeling overwhelmed, upset, or full of despair.
So trade your despair for praise. You can do this by finding a praise playlist that you like on YouTube. Just search for worship music and keep it playing as much as you can. The more you can praise, the more heaviness seems to lift. So challenge yourself today to keep praising to help
