I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)
In the eyes of God, through the finished works of Christ, we have been clothed with the robe of righteousness. This means that when the Father sees us, He is not looking at our flaws and mistakes; He is looking at us in His Son, covered with His righteousness. This brings joy to the heart; a boldness rises up in our spirit. We find that, through the gift of His righteousness, we have been empowered to live victoriously in every arena of life.
