God has called you to be royalty. You don't have to conform to the wardrobes of this world to feel good about yourself. Remember, what you wear initially defines what people think about you. God wants your wardrobe to honor Him. You don't need to dress to get attention...He can make you more attractive than any fashion designer because God specializes in internal and eternal makeovers. Your favor and attractiveness will radiate because you are a reflection of Him. Keep in mind that those who design clothes to expose your body do not love your soul like God does. Let your wardrobe reveal His Spirit...not your flesh. So robe yourself today like the royalty you are.
Charm can be deceiving and beauty fades away, but a woman who honors the Lord deserves to be praised. ~ Proverbs 31:30~
People see what you are before they hear who you are. First impressions may become lasting impressions. Your clothing and personal appearance affect others toward you. Your appearance influences your own emotions. Your appearance sends a message to others. The Proverbs 31 Woman dressed to communicate her dignity. "She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple."
Your appearance educates others in how you desire to be approached. That is why the prostitute dressed to seduce a man. "And, behold there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart."
Your appearance influences what others feel toward you. That is why Joseph shaved his beard and changed his raiment when he came into the court of Pharaoh. Egyptians hated beards. Joseph packaged himself for where he was going instead of where he had been.
Your appearance can decide your acceptance or rejection. That is why Joseph changed his outward appearance to create a climate of acceptance.
Your appearance can influence the decisions and plans of those who see you. Naomi mentored Ruth about her dress and appearance. When she approached Boaz, she made herself desirable for the man she desired.
It is well with my soul,
