God has given us a new wardrobe. No longer do we wear the dingy rags of hopelessness and despair. We are now clothed with joy, hope, and love. No matter what is going on in our lives, we dress in joy.
There is no fashion show that can capture the brilliance of our new clothes. We don’t parade ourselves to show off our new attire. The joy we now have makes any new, worldly trend look dull and lifeless. Our Father, God clothes us in the finest robes and jewelry. We are His children, and because of that, we are a royal family.
Recovery allows us to take off the worn out and tattered clothes of our past, instead, putting on bright, new outfits. Our old garments no longer fit us. God’s new wardrobe fits us perfectly. We know we can never go back to the clothes we once wore. The only purpose our old clothes have now is for kindling on a fire. God has clothed us in joy so that we can sing and praise Him forever.
