TOPIC: UNDEFILED GARMENT
SCRIPTURE: Let your garment be always white and let your head lack no ointment. – Ecclesiastes 9:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Iniquity is a foundation for calamity.
It has been confirmed that one of the channels through which the Power of God flows is a clear conscience or an undefiled garment. Anywhere the conscience is clear and garments are undefiled, the Power of God flows. Iniquity, on the other hand, is a foundation for calamity.
From our anchor scripture, we understand that whenever the garment is white, the head must be anointed with oil. So, the purity of your garment provokes the flow of oil and when the oil is on your head, you are untouchable by the enemy. This is why the Bible says, Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm (Psalm 105:15).
Iniquity increases a man’s vulnerability. For instance, when you take money that is not yours, defile your heart with impurity or lie in order to cheat and deceive others; you position your life for disaster.
The Bible says in Zechariah 3:1-3, that Satan resisted Joshua, the high priest because he wore a filthy garment. So, unrighteousness invites satanic resistance.
Beloved, if you do not want the forces of darkness to ruin your life, you must embrace a lifestyle of purity, character and integrity.
Remember this: Iniquity is a foundation for calamity.
1. Keep away from places and people who may lure you into transgression.
2. Ask God for the grace to avoid sin.
