“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness…” Isaiah 61:10, ESV.
While preparing to leave church service one day, I was gathering my purse and Bible, and I saw a vision of a crown on my head and I was wearing a beautiful robe. I stood there for a moment…thinking did I just see what I thought I did? Me? Crowned and robed? I had spent so many years of my life feeling less than, unworthy, and unqualified, but God was helping me see myself the way He sees me in the Spirit. He was helping me accept His high calling, His royal crown, His new robe and His true identity for me.
If you’re still seeing yourself as less than, as unqualified, as unworthy, as labeled by man, you won’t walk in the fullness of God’s purpose for your life.
Let Him remove those old garments, let Him remove the old way of thinking, and let Him crown you my sister. Let Him robe you and show you how to wear it. Let Him show you who you are, who you’ve always been in Him. Let Him help you see yourself the way He sees you. Step into your place. Accept His high calling for your life. You can handle it. He’ll grace you to handle it. You can do it. He’ll grace you to do it. You can be it, He’ll grace you to be it.
Pray with me…My Father God, You are a wonderful God. Thank you for loving me. I want to see myself right, as your own daughter, crowned with your love, and robed in your righteousness. Change my views and perspectives. Renew my mind and help me see. Remove the old garments, all the labels and everything false, and dress me. Robe me. Adorn me. I accept your high calling and I choose to step into the place you’ve reserved for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
