God gives you an alternative to what the enemy is trying to do. God gives you an alternative. He gives you something else, something different in place of what is coming against you. In place of what is rising up on the inside of you, God replaces that with something better that is good news. Beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for when you are feeling really heavy about life.
