Though you stand before me accused, I will rebuke the accuser. Before my holy throne, you are dressed in filthy clothing, overcome with guilt and shame. I will remove your dirty garments and replace them with fine, new clothes. I have removed your sin. You stand before me cleansed. You are made new. Lift up your head weary one. I am your advocate and I will speak for you, you only need to remain silent. I am your warrior King, I will fight for you, so be still. I am your shield, I will protect you. Remain in me and let my words remain in you. Abide in me and I will abide in you. In this way, you will know what to say. This is how you will know what to do. You are a burning stick, snatched from the fire. I have removed you from the heat of battle. I have delivered you from the fight and brought you into a spacious place. Though you have been burnt, you will not be destroyed. Though you have been wounded, you will not be defeated. I am your God. I am with you and I will not let you go.
“See, I have taken away your sins, and now I am giving you these fine new clothes.”ZEchariah 3:4
What lies of the enemy have you freed me from?
Help me believe your word over my life.
