Take your clothes off

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

John 11:40-44

Listen
In me the long awaited life and healing is yours for I am the very source of life and good. When you believe in me, I bring life. I bring life to the very crevasses of darkness and death which continue to suffocate you. There are places within you where you’ve chosen to believe that which kills, steals and destroys. Hold not longer to these things.
When I bring you new life do not continue to dress as one who walks in death. I’ve healed you. Take off the garments that covered your shame. Take off that which bound you. Take off that which hides and walk out into light, walk into life!
It is fear that keeps you from walking fully in your healing. It is disbelief that keeps you from living into the life I’ve given. I am the very source of life. It is not out of my hands to breathe new life into any dead thing. When you experience this, do not waste one moment of time by doubting my work or living in the familiar bondage of your burial clothes. Strip them off and jump into the covering of life. It is a beautiful gift
Pray
I pray that you will walk in life.
I pray that you will believe in the healing work of Jesus. I pray that you will taste and know the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
I pray that Holy Spirit will reveal to you any place where you choose to remain in your burial clothes and have not fully embraced the life found in Jesus.
I pray that your belief in Jesus as the source of life would increase and that your life would take on the character of his life.
I pray that those around you would notice the new life you’ve embraced and that this life would point to the glory of God!

Live
Go through your closet and rid yourself of all the clothes you hold on to but do not use.
Take these clothes to your favorite thrift store. As you drop them off thank the Lord for giving you new garments of life in Him.
