At ease......

                    Robe of Righteousness by Lars Justinen

Wear My Robe of Righteousness with ease.
I custom made it for you, to cover you from head to toe.
The price I paid for this covering was astronomical.......My own blood.
You could never purchase such a royal garment,
no matter how hard you worked.
Sometimes you forget that my Righteousness is a gift,
and you feel ill at ease in your regal robe.
I weep when I see you squirming under the velvety fabric,
as if it were made of scratchy sackcloth.

I want you to trust Me enough to realize your privileged position in my Kingdom.
Relax in the luxuriant folds of your magnificent robe.
Keep your eyes on Me, 
as you practice walking in this garment of righteousness.
When your behavior is unfitting for one in my Kingdom, 
do not try to throw off your royal robe.
Instead, throw off the unrighteous behavior.
Then you will be able to feel at ease in this glorious garment, 
enjoying the gift I fashioned for you before the foundation of the world.

"Jesus Calling" 
by Sarah Young

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God
for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation.
He hath covered me with the Robe of Righteousness
as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments
as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels,
Isaiah 61:10

Sweet friends, let us be at ease and relax
 in the luxuriant folds of our Robe of Righteousness 
continually rejoice in His wondrous 
love, mercy and amazing grace!

Oh, how He loves you and me!!


Luv and Sweet Blessings!

Pin It!

Another beautiful message from our King! I haven't got to that one yet. Sometimes I read the same one for days, because I just can't get over it or past it - it's all so good! said...

Just beautiful Jackie! Boy do we ever need to be reminded of this, all the time!
Also, loved your comments on 'fitness'... we can DO this thing! :)

Welcome back! I just bought Sara's book a week ago. I've heard so many speak of it and and share bits of wisdom from it. I have the Set of God Calling and God at Eventide. They have nourished me for years. I am excited to begin reading Jesus Calling. Sara's words and insight are so warmly written. I love the picture you posted - helps me see it as a real garment to put on and wear. Thanks for the reminder here.

Bless you dear one. Glad the surgery was successful.
