A few nights ago, I had a dream.
The message of the dream was to get rid of clothes of defilement.
In the dream, I was going through boxes of old clothes and throwing away most of them. The message was to get rid of clothes that didn’t bring glory to the Lord.
At the end of the dream, boxes of orange prison dresses were brought in. Clothes of bondage. Clothes of rebellion. All of them were to be thrown out.
Clothes can symbolically represent a spiritual anointing, mantle of God’s glory, or gifts and talents. Clothing represents your public image. New clothes can reveal a hidden dimension of one’s personality so people can see us in a new light.
Changing of clothes can represent letting go of the old you, old defilement and being cleansed.
Ask the Lord to take you through your closet and show you what needs to go—the old, the worn out, the ugly, colors that don’t work for you. The old depressing garb you need to shed.
Break soul ties with some of your clothes and get rid of them.
You know colors you look great in. Wear those colors. Add color to your life. Throw out drab depressing clothes and colors. Lighten and brighten up your life. Look alive. Shed clothes of your depression.
Change your clothes—change your life. RETHINK YOURSELF.
Let God help you figure out what you need to change. Let Him show you your clothes of defilement. Two years ago, the Lord told me to get out of blue jeans and dress myself up every day. Not fancy—just decent and respectable. I started wearing old nice clothes that I didn’t wear much and it was amazing the change that made.
Get out of those disgusting stretch pants that are absolutely defiling for you and everyone who sees you wear them.
“Walk worthy of the calling to which you have been called.” (Ephesians 4:1)
—this certainly includes your clothes and how you present yourself to the world.
