...to give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Psalm 61:3
The Hebrew root for "garment" shows praise as more than a piece of clothing casually thrown over our shoulders. It literally teaches us "to wrap" or "cover" ourselves--that the garment of praise is to leave no openings through which hostile elements can penetrate. This garment of praise repels and replaces the heavy spirit. This special message of instruction and hope is for those oppressed by feat or doubt. "Put on" this garment. A warm coat from our closet only resists the cold wind when it is "put on." when distressed, be dressed---with praise! Act according to God's Word. SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
