“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness…” Isaiah 61: 10
Today, there is much to rejoice about and much to give God give praise for!
For as Isaiah 61 reveals, as a child of God you are dressed with the best, by the best, for the best of life!
God has prepared a new look for you so that you would reflect His glory and radiate with His love!
In Christ, God has….
Clothed you with garments of salvation,
Covered you with a robe of righteousness.
Given you beauty and a garment of praise.
and anointed you with the oil of joy.
And this, my friend, is a good look!
This year, don’t settle for anything less than God’s best for you. As you begin your journey through this new season of your life, don’t wear or carry anything that God didn’t give you!
Don’t dress in mourning clothes – no longer grieve over the things of the past or the things that God has removed from your life.
Release the heaviness caused by the burdens that you carry.
Take off the garment of shame and step out of the robe of guilt.
Shake off the inaccurate labels that have been put on you and remove the unrealistic expectations you have placed on yourself.
Dust yourself off and stand up strong in your true identity in Christ, wearing the garments God has given you!
This is YOUR Year! This is YOUR time to Shine for Jesus!
In 2016, embrace your new look and carry it with gratitude. There is much for you to accomplish and many opportunities for you to seize and God has prepared you for now!
My friend, wear your new garments with confidence! You have been dressed by the King!
To your NEW look!
