Bridal Garments of Humility
Isaiah 62:4-5 - You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married Ö and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
One of the greatest, most breath-taking moments in a wedding is watching the bride promenade down the aisle, wrapped in the most glorious of garments. Crowds hush and all eyes are affixed for she has captured the room just by her appearance.
Even today, Holy Spirit is training us in humility to rule and reign with Him as His Bride. If the Bride is to be equally yoked to the Bridegroom, she must wear the same wedding garments He wore. If Jesus, the King of Kings, chose a crown of thorns, how much more should we adorn ourselves in the beauty of meekness? If He forsook His divine robes of righteousness for earthly burlap robes, how much more should we wrap ourselves in a mantle of humility?
At the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, each one of us will be wrapped in different garments, brilliantly embroidered with the fruits and rewards from our earthly lives. A stunning, colorful, tailor-made royal robe will be our portion.
In the Lordís great wisdom, itís as though the outer garment that covered each person was a simple burlap robe - a mantle of humility. Underneath that robe is the beautiful royal robe of our gifting. The Lord displays these at different times, but most of the time it is a secret testimony between you and the Lord.
Walking in humility is a heart issue, a lifestyle, an attitude that is God-given. An impartation of humility is different than a decision of humility. You canít instantaneously grow humility in your heart. Rather, it is a journey of a lifetime of matching your heart with Godís heart. Ask God to do whatever it takes to make you a pure reflection of His Son.
Prayer: Lord, I give you permission to do whatever it takes to kill my pride. Help me to be the first one to run to the cross, humble out, and say ďYesĒ to you, Lord - always. I need Your help to forgive and always put other people before me, even as You sacrificed everything for me. I want to cloak myself in a garment of humility so I am a Bride that matches her Husband.
