Isaiah 61:10 “For HE has clothed me with the garments of salvation, HE has covered me with the robe of (HIS) righteousness!”
Uniquely Fit, Perfectly Fitted!
Trust in the LORD
and with Joy, weep aloud…
clinging thus to HIS feet
for HE comes in the clouds!
Yet Future, near Present
so shout now HIS praise
for HIS face we shall see;
by HIS Grace, being saved!
Though often repeated
as well as “Well Known!”…
still HIS comforting robes
we’ve exchanged — for our own!
As those teardrops which fall
in the mirror come from you,
know that HIS hands shall dry
them! So bask — in these Truths!
As HIServant again joyously shedding Self’s robe for HIS own,
Devotional: Matthew 27:35 “Then they crucified HIM, and divided HIS garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: “They divided MY garments among them, and for MY clothing they cast lots.”
Did you know the robe of CHRIST was seamless?
The soldiers cast lots for it (gambled) because as Benson noted “His coat was excepted out of this division, because, as it was without seam, they agreed to cast lots for it by itself.”
What might that analogy tell us?
Just as I cannot add my works (which incidentally, all good works I do were appointed to me before the foundation of the world by HIM…so HE gets the credit for those too) but there’s nothing added to a seamless robe!
Just CHRIST! HE is the ALPHA and the OMEGA in every sense!
Matthew 22:11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man who was not wearing wedding garments.”
That man is every soul without CHRIST’s given (not earned) wedding garments!
So! Discard your filthy robe-like rags, oh my soul…and rest in the robes of HIS righteousness — seamlessly sown!
HIS robe is uniquely fit and perfectly fitted for you!! Praise the LORD!
Amen and amen!
