On Saturday, the Lord asked me to look up the name Goliath. Goliath means uncovered or stripped.
Is it not like the enemy of your soul to make you feel stripped or uncovered? Yet he is the one who is not covered. He comes at you with accusation to take off of you that which the Lord puts on you. You have to get it settled in your heart, you will not succumb to the accusations, intimidation, strife, and lies of the enemy. The Lord clothes you in His righteousness, not because of anything you did, but what He did on the cross.
We in Christ, having a covering, a head who covenantally signed and ratified with His precious blood the covenantal blessings of God. God has bound himself to us. As soon as we received Christ, we became His. Us being the weaker of the party receive the benefits of the stronger party, God. All His strengths, provisions, and defense.
If you meditate on the Lord Jesus Christ, He doesn't strip you, He puts on you. He puts on you His salvation, His garment of praise, His authority, His power, His glory, His Presence. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
