When you are a follower of Jesus, your wardrobe is quite different than that of others whom do not choose to follow Jesus. You see, as a Jesus-follower, you have two additional wardrobe pieces: strength and dignity.
“Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future.”
So, if you are in a season where you feel weak, be comforted by the fact that Jesus will clothe you in strength. In fact, He will be your strength in your time of weakness. This strength is a mindset that is unique when you don your God-goggles and see everything through His eyes.
If you are not feeling dignified, know that dignity, that honor, is right there in your wardrobe also! Like clothing you put on, it is always there; on you. Yet, this type of clothing matches how God sees you. It’s ornate and wonderful. Just as He made you, wonderful. It’s clothing worthy of royalty, which as a child of God, you are.
With Spring right around the corner, flowers are about to be in full bloom, and aren’t they just gorgeous when they are? The different colors, patterns, textures…all beautiful! The Bible tells us that not even King Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like the lilies of the field! Be encouraged by this next passage, which really speaks completely for itself….
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? “And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. “But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
So, sweet follower of Jesus, be encouraged by your unique wardrobe! Wear it proud! Tell others about how to get the same wardrobe! And, don’t worry about tomorrow. God’s already there foraging a path through the unknown of tomorrow. Just seek, trust, obey, and follow, donning your rockin’ God-given wardrobe!
