Do you have an old jacket or an old robe that you keep around? Even though it’s tattered and torn – it’s familiar. You have had it for years. It reminds you of where you have been or perhaps what you have lived through so far. Lots of memories – some good, some bad. Yet we keep it around.
Today I am asking myself why. Why do I cling to that old way of thinking like I hold onto that old pink robe? It doesn’t fit me. It wasn’t even a robe that I picked out. It was for someone else. They didn’t want it. So, why do I? Time to dump it I think.
Time to get rid of that old way of thinking. Take the old robe to the curb and leave it there. VICTORY is already ours. Jesus took care of it. Hey, let’s take off that robe of regret and shame. It didn’t fit us very well anyway. That is not who God says we are.
Here, let’s try on this new robe…

Sometimes there are authors that just melt my heart. Max Lucado is one of my fav’s. I haven’t read everything He has written, but a few and I love how he brings light to the Word and helps me see things differently. Here are a few of his words…
- Your Robe, Your Ring, and Your Sandals (todaysfreshmanna.wordpress.com)
- Perfect Health and Wholeness, Now! (hisyesgirls.wordpress.com)
- The first devotional post… About Jesus’ clothes(: (kawatts23.wordpress.com)

Praise God for his unshakeable, unfailing love for us and for the gift of salvation and all that salvation is!
Amen Kait, praise God!
What a wonderful way to end the day. You are such a treasure, Diana. Bless you. I’m SO going to tweet that last Lucado quote about the butterfly along with a photo. It’s beautiful. Thanks for that.
You are welcome Susan, Max is always good!
Thanks , Diana, for the wonderful analogy of the old robe and then all the Max quotes! Have you read John 3:16? I really loved that one by him. God bless you as you wear His robe of righteousness!
Thank you Debbie, I haven’t read that one yet. I’ll have to take a look, thank you! And God bless you too sis 😉
