The Beautiful Exchange
The Lord is extending His hand ready to exchange. He is ready and waiting. We need to be willing to give up what we have to receive what He has.
It's all available to us. Jesus made the ultimate Exchange when He gave us Life by His death.
He exchanges our captivity for Liberty, our prisons for Freedom, our rejection for favor, our depression for Joy, our mourning for comfort, fear for trust, discouragement for hope, sickness for healing, apathy for passion, intimidation for boldness, confusion for clarity, survival for Destiny, defeat for victory.
Isaiah 61 says that when we do this exchange, we will become “Oaks of righteousness”. He plants us so we can display His glory in the earth!
We are to be transformed so that we can transform.
God gets glorified and then we are able to rebuild ruined cities and raise up former devastations… He's wanting us to repair and rebuild si that His glory fills the Earth. Be transformed to transform.
