Scarves of White
Series: Scarves of White - Replacing Our Issues With The Covering Of Christ
Romans 13:11-12 and 14
''…The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness, and put on the armor of light…rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ…'' Romans 13:11, 12 and 14 (NIV)
Oh the joy that fills my heart today as we end our study together. Yes, I will miss you, but no, I will not miss the issues we have dealt with the last few weeks. Praise the Lord for His mighty power to abolish strongholds!
So where are we at with our colorful scarves? Is our drawer still full of them? Do they still tempt us every day?
Perhaps, but listen. I pray with all my heart that you are more aware of the things that have held you back, and in the Name of Jesus, that these issues will flee!
I hope the next time you almost let you anger get the best of you, you will stop. You will remember that love covers over a multitude of things, and anger will not win. And maybe, before you even go to bed tonight, you will be faced with a wave of discontentment. You will look around and be tempted to say, ''Is this all there is?'' But! You will stop. You will thank God for the very things that make you so unhappy. And discontentment will not win.
I can almost bet you will be hit with insecurity somewhere down the road. And the same old lies will return, making you think you are not worthy, and you are not capable. Doubt will threaten to overcome you. But you will stop. You will look to God, the Creator of who you really are in Christ. And insecurity will not win.
Pride may tempt you to lift your chin and cast judgment on those around you. It may give you a feeling of entitlement and almost cause you to stumble. But you will stop. You will lower your chin. You will bow down…on your knees, on your face before God, Who alone is worthy to be praised. And pride will not win.
Lastly, if oppression raises its ugly head again, and you are burdened with the weight of the world on your shoulders, you will stop. You will remember that only Jesus carried the weight of the entire world on His shoulders. And you will thank Him. You will lean on Him. You will remove the backpack. And oppression will not win.
Ladies, before we each go our separate ways, I want to leave us with a shining example of being clothed in white. Probably my most favorite passage in the Bible, I get goose-bumps every time I read it.
Please read Revelation 19:11-16
This passage makes me want to sing, ''Rider on a white horse, Faithful and True…''
And Sisters, I am no expert in eschatology or the study of end times, but when the Word says the armies of ...
