GOD PLUCKED YOU OUT
And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan! Even the Lord Who now and habitually chooses Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this [returned captive Joshua] a brand plucked out of the fire? (Zechariah 3:2 | Amplified)
“Your consciousness often shows on your countenance.” – Mark Hankins
Zechariah 3:3 says, “Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.” Joshua had on some dirty, filthy clothes. Those clothes are a type of disobedience, sin, or the effect of sin.
You see people that still have oppression, fear, guilt, or shame on them. Once you get “in Christ,” you put on the new man. Then you can wear joy, blessing, confidence, righteousness, and glory. God wants you to change clothes!
Do you know God plucked you out of the fire? The devil said, “I have you, and I am going to destroy you.” God said, “Hold it, devil! I have a plan. I have chosen him. He belongs to Me.” You were going down for the last time, but God plucked you out!
Confession: I am getting dressed up in Christ! I am wearing joy, blessing, confidence, righteousness, and glory!
