God is interested in every aspect of your life, including your dressing because it can either make or mar His plan for you.
How polished are you to fit into His eternal plan for your life? Do you wear clothes that make you look like the people of the world? When confronted about the clothes you wear, do you say it doesn’t matter?
You cannot look like the world and expect to be close to God, neither can you be friendly with the world and also friendly with God. Read Open Heaven 23 January 2018
Are you involved in any questionable habit that cannot be uttered in public? You cannot be a smooth stone in the hands of God until you do away with anything questionable in your life.
Yes, you can be a stone – an ordinary one, but if you want to be smooth stone that God can use to do great things in His kingdom, then you must allow God to polish you, and make you a tried stone like Jesus Christ
If God considers you His favorite, you will mind what you do, say, where you go and how you dress
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. I am Thine 0 Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
