Is there an issue in your life today that you would like to put a stop to? Maybe itâ€™s a certain behaviour, addiction or bad attitude that isnâ€™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?
Remember, when you â€œclothe yourselfâ€ with the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be protected and able to stand strong against temptation. How do you clothe yourself with Jesus Christ? First of all, when you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you are covered and cleansed by His blood. You are restored and renewed.
Today think about this, just as you get dressed daily to cover your body, you have to daily â€œcoverâ€ your mind with the Word of God. That means you cover every point that has access to your thoughts. Cover your ears by listening to the Word. Cover your eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord. Cover your mouth by speaking the Word and encouraging those around you. As you cover yourself with Christ, youâ€™ll be strong against temptation, youâ€™ll walk in victory, and youâ€™ll experience the good things He has in store for you!
â€œClothe 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]â€¦â€(Romans 13:14, AMP)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to redeem me and restore me. Father, there are many issues Iâ€™ve been struggling with for a long time. Please cover me with Your Spirit so I can stand against temptation. I say thank You in advance for making me new and covering me, so that I can stand strong against temptation. Today, I submit every area of my life to You and invite You to have Your way in me, in Jesusâ€™ name! Amen
