“Clothe Yourself In Him”
clothe yourself
by Dona Hake

When we gave our life to Christ, all things became new including our “spiritual” wardrobe!    The Lord desires that we are thinking about clothing ourselves in the many good things He desires.  As you awaken in the morning ask Him to clothe you with these good things so you can be an instrument for Him.


Colossians 3:12 (CJB)
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people,

holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves

with feelings of compassion and with kindness,

humility, gentleness and patience.”


May we humbly ask Him to use us in special ways that His love and goodness would be made manifest through us.  As we make a conscious effort to clothe ourselves in the fruits of who He is we are pleasing Him and we will truly be blessed.   Paul was exhorting Christians here in this scripture to clothe themselves in the beauty of the Lord.   As we look at compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience one may be able to identify being stronger in one over another.  For instance, it is so easy to be nice to those that are treating us right, but difficult people can cause us to really get off track with our love walk.   Remember…. God’s way is always the higher way, and as we react out of His love and purpose to remain clothed in  His Spirit we will be blessed.   I encourage you to clothe yourself in Him daily, and ask Him to continue to grow and strengthen you in the fullness of all that He is!
