In preparation for my wedding three years ago, I spent an outrageous amount of time, energy, and money to secure the perfect dress for the occasion. Then, I sat through several alteration sessions to get the fit just right. All of this for a dress I wore only one day!
This week as I was digging “Into the Word,” I came across a passage that reminded me that God desires to clothe me — it’s a peaceful process as long as I cooperate and lean into Him. His wardrobe always fits perfectly:
So, chosen by God for this new life of love,
dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you:
compassion, kindness, humility,
quiet strength, discipline.
Be even-tempered, content with second place,
quick to forgive an offense.
Forgive as quickly and completely
as the Master forgave you.
And regardless of what else you put on, wear love.
It’s your basic, all-purpose garment.
Never be without it.
Colossians 3:12-14 (MSG)
So, this coming week, I am going to pray that God’s love will be my best outfit — the one I grab from the closet when I want to look my best. The one I want others to notice. The one that makes me look like a million dollars.
Q4U: How do you daily choose to wear God’s wardrobe?
