New clothes

Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes."

Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you."

"'Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring My servant, the Branch. See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says the Lord Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.'"

—Zechariah 3:3-4, 8-9

That's a good way to wake up. Praise God.

What a rip-off to believe any accusation of the enemy or to put my hope in anything less when this is the truth.

Finding myself a little nervous as the week wears on. Not sure that I'm getting all the important things done in the right priority and sequence. There's a lot this week— Leadership Team Thursday night, worship Sunday morning, Finance Team Sunday afternoon. Always want to think that peace will come from getting everything done, from having everything under my control. Even so, I procrastinate and slip into non-productive funks. Regardless, peace won't come from my accomplishment. It comes from God, not in my circumstances but beyond them, hoping in Him and praising Him. Have to engage my will to remember that, because my flesh doesn't want to.
