I cried out to God – how do I stop from falling consistently into sinful behaviour, addictions or bad attitudes that aren’t pleasing to God? When Adam and Eve disobeyed in the garden, the first thing God did was to put clothing on them. They needed to be covered. In the same way, you and I need to be covered today.

What should we cover or clothe ourselves with you may ask? The Bible says with the Lord Jesus Christ. When you “clothe yourself” with the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be protected and able to stand strong against temptation. How do you clothe yourself with Jesus Christ? When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you are covered and cleansed by His blood. You are restored and renewed. Then, just as you get dressed daily, you have to daily “cover” your mind with His Word. 

Today cover (clothe) every vulnerable exposed points to your mind. Cover your ears by listening to the Word through music. Cover your eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord on your T.V, computer or smart phone. Cover your mouth by speaking only positive words of encouragement. As you clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, you’ll become powerful against temptation, you‘ll walk in victory, and you’ll experience the good things He has in store for you!

“Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature]…”

(Romans 13:14, AMPC)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for sending Your Son, Yahshua, to redeem me and restore me. Father, thank You for making me new and covering me so that I can stand strong against temptation. God, change my fleshly clothes for that of my Lord Jesus Christ. I  submit my mind and every area of my life to You, and invite You to have Your way in me, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
