Friends, are there something in your life that you would like to put a stop to here at the beginning of 2015? Maybe it’s a certain behavior, addiction or bad attitude that isn’t pleasing to God? Just as Adam and Eve were exposed in their sin and needed to be clothed in the Garden, we need to clothe ourselves to protect us from sin. When you “clothe yourself” with the Christ, He strengthens you against temptations.
How do you clothe yourself with Christ? In the same way you cover yourself in the natural with clothing—by putting something on. You have to daily “put on” the Word of God. You have to cover your ears by listening to the Word. You cover your eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord. You cover your mouth by speaking the Word and encouraging those around you. As you cover yourself with Christ, you will be strong against temptation, and you will walk in the victory the Lord has planned for you!
Friends, go out today and speak God’s promises and Word over your life and future! Spend time in His Word and know that His promises over your life is true. God is faithful.
Enjoy a blessed day!
