I saw a Believer on the street. An evil being ran past him. The Believer thought the devil had taken his coat and asked why he was throwing it in the mud.
The evil one said very angrily, “Because it isn’t yours.” The Child of God then realized that he was still wearing his coat. It had never left his back.
“Beloved. I have you covered. It is a coat of many colors. It is My beautiful Robe of Righteousness. Rainbow colors are flowing from it. The colors of heaven. You are reflecting My Glory, Dear One.
The devil is angry. He thought he had taken your covering. He took it from Adam in the Garden, but he cannot take yours. It was a free gift from your Father. You are now the Redeemed of the Lord.
You wear MY mantle. It is the Garment of Salvation. As I delight in My Son, so I delight in you, My Child.
I have removed your shame and covered you with My Grace. No one can take this from you, Dear One. The devil cannot touch your festive Robe. Instead of sackcloth, you are girded with gladness.
I have granted to you the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of fainting. I have made you a dreamer of dreams and a seer of visions. You are covered by the Blood of the Lamb. You are the favored one of the Father.
You are wrapped in My Love, Light and Glory. You are clothed with POWER from on high. Have no fear, Beloved. I have you covered.
For the eternal God is your refuge, and His everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, ‘Destroy them!’
