God will give you beauty for ashes. An ash is the powdery residue left after the burning of a substance. There is nothing desirable about ashes. Ashes signify residue of destruction of substances (which may be precious) by fire. The God who makes the impossible possible and who is the divine exchanger promises to give you beauty for ashes. God wants to turn any ruin or unpleasantness in your life to beauty hence to pleasant and desirable things to sight to His own glory. Amen.
Isaiah 61:3 NKJV.
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. Amen.
