The Lord is offering you “Joy in July”!
I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak Isaiah 61:3 to me this morning,
“…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.”
An oil of joy is being poured out upon all of those that have been in a time of mourning. You will begin to see beauty come forth in the place where ashes have clouded your vision, the oil of joy where mourning has poured down upon you and you will be clothed in praise as you move into the beauty and joy that He provides.
I see your garments being changed from black to the colors of summer, of life, of celebration and of joy. You will display His splendor and declare His faithfulness. Get ready to celebrate your freedom from oppression and despair. The time for rejoicing is coming upon you.
