Beauty For Ashes
The Chaplain is an important part of ministry to soldiers during war time. God promises that when we are in trouble, we can cry out to Him and He will rescue us.
The Lord promises to give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning (Isaiah 61:3) for those who call upon His name.
Through the tragedies and trials that we may face in this world, we can always call upon the name of the Lord. Through perilous times, He is always close to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18).
What comfort for these soldiers to know that no matter what comes against them in battle, the Lord is with them. Even the seemingly strongest soldier needs help in time of trouble. What a humbling sight to see these war heros turn to their Hero and Saviour Jesus, knowing that their true strength and courage is found in Him alone.
No matter what battle we face, we can always turn to Jesus.
