Spiritual Clothing

The Lord thoroughly covers & clothes His people.
We are clothed with Christ (Galatians 3:26-27) & His salvation (Isaiah 61:10).
Believers are the New Humanity in Christ (Colossians 3:8-11), equipped & empowered with the armour of God (Ephesians 6:10-13).
Strength to walk with the Lord & fight in the battle of life comes from the Lord.
The One who endues (clothes) His people with power form on high.
This will be our focus for today.


Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” Luke 24:49


The great promise that was fulfilled following Jesus’s ascension is the pouring out of the Holy Spirit.
This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-11). The gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out with power.
It was the pouring out of the Holy Spirit to live within & empower the followers of Jesus.
It was a promise to the initial disciples but also to every believer ever since. A promise fulfilled to you. SELAH
The Holy Spirit is gifted to you to live within you & empower you to live for the Lord.
You are endued & clothed with power from on high. Hallelujah!!

The Holy Spirit was poured out with power to endue, clothe & wrap around believers.
You are covered & clothed with the Holy Spirit’s presence & power.
Jesus lives within you through His Spirit’s indwelling presence.
Jesus works through you through His Spirit’s power.
Empowered to be a witness to the nations (Acts 1:8). SELAH
The same power that raised Christ from the dead now resides in & rests on us (Romans 8:11). So, so good!!

Since Pentecost, the Holy Spirit has been coming upon & clothing the Lord’s people with power.
This poured out gift is a great privilege that carries great purpose.
The Lord is seeking to reach the nations through His Spirit living in me & working through me.
He desires my obedience & willing partnership. SELAH
The promised power & presence of the Most High God has come to You through the poured our Spirit.
Wow!! How majestically & mightily you have been covered & clothed by the Lord.
Praise & thank the Lord for the great gift of the Holy Spirit.
Celebrate the Spirit’s presence & power in & upon your live.

For Reflection

  • How easily & freely do I relate to & respond to the Holy Spirit?
  • In what ways have I encountered & experienced the filling, overflowing & fire of the Holy Spirit?
  • Am I experiencing the privilege & fulfilling the purpose of being clothed with power form on high?
  • Meditate upon the presence & power of the Holy Spirit in your life.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the great gift of Your Spirit,
How wonderful that You clothe me with power from on high,
Jesus thank you that You dwell within me,
Through the presence of Your Spirit.
Holy Spirit help me to grow in intimacy & confidence in my relationship with you,
That I may daily know Your presence & power – fill me to overflowing, let Your fire fall on me.
This I ask in Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
