“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness…” Isaiah 61:10, ESV.
While preparing to leave church one day, I was gathering my purse and Bible, and I saw a vision that I was wearing a crown on my head and a beautiful robe. I stood there for a moment, thinking did I just see what I thought I did? Me? Crowned and robed? I had spent years of my life feeling unworthy and unqualified, but God was helping me see myself the way He sees me in the Spirit. He was helping me see my true identity in Christ.
If you’re still seeing yourself as less than, as unqualified, as unworthy, as labeled by people, God is going to open your eyes and help you see your true identity in Him. He is removing old garments, old ways of thinking, and old ways that have brought you dishonor. He’s going to teach you that you are not defined by your past. You are not defined by your failures. You are not defined by your current situation. You are defined by the truth of His Word. You are His daughter and you are who God said you are. Your situation may not look like you are a daughter of the King. Your body may not feel like you are God’s daughter, but you are. You are crowned and you are robed by Him.
Say out loud with me from your heart: “I am God’s daughter, crowned with His love, and robed with His righteousness. God is renewing my mind and helping me to see myself the way He sees me. He is removing old garments from me, all labels and everything false, and He is robing me and He is adorning me. I walk in my true identity in Christ and let Him honor me. In Jesus’ name.”
