Scripture: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
Thought For The Day: It is not how you appear before people that matters, but how you appear before God.
Joshua was a respected High priest of God. He was very instrumental to the rebuilding of the temple of Jerusalem. But one day, as he stood before the angel of God to minister, he was clothed with filthy garments and satan stood to resist him.
This story illustrates the spiritual condition of Joshua the high priest. Joshua was decently dressed in the eyes of everyone as he carried out his priestly duties but in the realm of the spirit, he was clothed with filthy garment.

Beloved, I want you to note that it is not how you appear before people that matters, but how you appear before God. It is not how you are perceived in the physical realm that matters but how you are perceived in the spiritual realm. In the eyes of the world, a person may be very spiritual and committed but in the eyes of God, he may be wearing a filthy dress of sin.
Beloved, do not struggle for human approval but for Divine approval. Invest your time and energy to find out what God thinks about you.
Remember this: It is not how you appear before people that matters, but how you appear before God
1. Live in the consciousness of Divine approval.
2. Ask God to remove every garment of sin from your life.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask that You remove and destroy every filthy garment from my life. Help me, LORD to live daily in Your consciousness, in Jesus’ Name.
