what are you covered in?

Isaiah 59:17

For He [the Lord] put on righteousness like a coat of armor,
And salvation like a helmet on His head;
He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
And covered Himself with zeal [and great love for His people] as a cloak.” – Isaiah 59:17, The Amplified Bible

This is only four things that God has put on.  Actually, what He put on is also a reflection of Who He is:

  • righteous (holy, sinless)
  • the God of salvation
  • the God of vengeance
  • zealous in His love for us

So if what we see is Who He is and what He is covered with, it makes me wonder who I am?  Am I angry?  Jealous?  Mean-spirited?  Then those are the things I’ve chosen to cover myself with.  I can also choose to literally put on what He truly is:

  • His salvation
  • zeal for Him
  • love
  • gentleness
  • (the list is endless).
