Clothed in the beauty of the Lord

July 19

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10.

Jesus is the lover of our soul. Our relationship with Him is often described in the imagery of a bride and bridegroom. As His bride, our soul rejoices in Him. We are grateful for the great dowry that he paid to embrace us into His royal family, “The Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45. He gave His life so that we can share His eternal life.

As His bride, He provided for us His robe of righteousness so that we can be free from all condemnation and walk proudly knowing that we are accepted by our beloved Christ. Forgiveness and acceptance is the great privilege that we have in Jesus with His peace, joy, and enduring love.

If God be for you who can successfully come against you. Rejoice in Him as He rejoices over you. Let your soul rest in Him as He cares for you. His garment of salvation upon you provides daily protection and provision. Let the beauty of Christ be seen in you today as you display His awesome glory in your life.
