Dress For Success ~ Sunday Devotion
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13 (NIV)
Have you ever had one of those days when you didn’t honor your body the way you want to? You gave into mindless eating and not really sure why? Next thing you know, you’re scrolling social media comparing yourself to others and considering the latest diet trend? Yeah, me too. I’ve been there. While God has set me free from a dieting lifestyle, I still have those days, those moments. The thing that is different is that I don’t stay in those moments. I now know that this is how Satan likes to poke and prod. He’s looking for a chink in my armor. You probably feel him poking at yours too.
If I want to successfully live the life God’s called me to live, I must dress for success. Dressing is a daily activity. Just as I get dressed every morning, I must take time to dress my spirit as well.
I firmly believe that with the right footwear one can rule the world. ~ Bette Midler
From head to toe, it’s important that you feel good in what you’re wearing. How you feel in what you’re wearing can make or break confidence. I can’t think of anything better to dress for success than to put on the armor of God. That outfit on my spirit plus one on my body that I’m comfortable in will have me facing the day with confidence.
The opinion of others, fashion trends, etc. don’t matter. What matters is how you feel. And His armor will give you confidence to face each day.
Have you ever heard someone say, “she could wear a trash bag and look good”? Because it’s not about what she’s wearing, it’s about the confidence she’s carrying. And that confidence comes from the way she clothes her spirit.
Action Step: Dress for success today. Put on God’s armor so you can confidently face the day.
