Time to Clean Out Your Closet

Divider

Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.

1 Peter 3:4


Years ago my closet was brimming with clothes—mostly hand-me-downs, garage sale-type clothing (kind of frumpy and dreary). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with second-hand clothing (most of what I own presently); however, there is a problem if I intentionally pick out clothing that reflects a low self-worth in God.

My frumpy clothes reflected my frumpy spirit and attitude about myself. I felt led to get rid of every item of clothing that didn’t speak to my exquisite value in the eyes of God. I gave away everything except one red dress.

Does this mean that we all should throw out our clothes and run to the nearest mall? Of course not! We start with the inner closet of our spirits and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal who we are in Christ. Ask questions like do I struggle with confidence in my gifts from God? Am I constantly turning down opportunities that will stretch my faith? You can’t hide what’s in your closet.

If you are bitter, fearful, angry, discontented, insecure or doubtful, it will leak out of your inner closet. No matter how hard you try to cover it up, anyone who is around you will catch on in a short amount of time.

Perhaps it is time to clean out your closet, and you will find out that you are a new person (2 Corinthians 5:17), forgiven (Colossians 1:14), loved (1 John 4:19), chosen (1 Peter 2:9), and called (2 Timothy 1:9). Start cleaning out your inner closet today. You might find the imperishable beauty that Christ sees in you!

Prayer

Dear Lord, help me to clean out my spiritual closet so that I can walk in confidence of who I am in Christ. Give me the courage to allow my outward appearance to reflect my spiritual joy in all modesty. Amen.

In His Service,
