Cover Yourself with Him (Written By: Joel Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“Clothe yourself   with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for   [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your   physical nature]”
(Romans 13:14, AMP)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Is there something in your   life that you would like to put a stop to today? Maybe it’s a certain   behavior, addiction or bad attitude that isn’t pleasing to God? Just as Adam   and Eve were exposed in their sin and needed to be clothed in the Garden, we   need to clothe ourselves to protect us from sin. When you “clothe yourself”   with the Lord Jesus Christ, He strengthens you against temptation.

How do you clothe yourself   with Jesus Christ? In the same way you cover yourself in the natural with   clothing — by putting something on. You have to daily “put on” the Word of   God. You have to cover your ears by listening to the Word. You cover your   eyes by watching only what is pleasing to the Lord. You cover your mouth by   speaking the Word and encouraging those around you. As you cover yourself   with Christ, you will be strong against temptation, and you will walk in the   victory the Lord has planned for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father,   thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for my sins. Thank   You for providing a way out of temptation so that I can stand clean before   You. Help me stand strong as I cover myself with Your Word in Jesus’ name.   Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
