THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
YOU CAN’T HAVE A DEFEATED MENTALITY AND LIVE A VICTORIOUS LIFE
The Scripture says to put on a garment of PRAISE for a spirit of heaviness. A garment is like a coat. Before you can put on a coat of PRAISE, you have to take OFF a coat of heaviness. Sometimes we wonder why we don’t have any JOY, why we’re not PASSIONATE. We’re wearing the wrong COAT. “Nothing good is in my future. I never get any breaks.” That coat of discouragement doesn’t look GOOD on you, that coat of self-PITTY is out of STYLE, and that coat of bitterness over who left you or what you didn’t get doesn’t FIT you anymore. Now do YOUR part and take OFF that coat of offense and put on a coat of PRAISE. “Father, thank You that Your plans for me are for GOOD. Thank You that what You STARTED in my life You will FINISH.” If you’re going to rise to the next LEVEL, you have to adjust your ATTITUDE. You can’t have a defeated MENTALITY and live a victorious LIFE.
Isaiah 61:3, NKJV
…to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…
