August 18–Just For Today–Putting On Zeal


Just for Today I will put on…ZEAL
” For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing And was clad with zeal as a cloak.”
Isaiah 59:17 (NKJV)

Today’s Action:
“clad with zeal as a cloak”…

Zeal is not a word we often hear nowadays.
What is Zeal and why should we put it on?
Zeal is defined as: an ardent interest or desire in pursuit of something.

Believers should put on Zeal so they can be Zealous for:

  • “Spiritual gifts ” according to 1 Corinthians 14:12
  • “Good works” as Titus 2:14 says

Believers need to say:

  • ” My zeal has consumed me” with regard to God’s word as spoken of in Psalm 119:139.

Believers need to cover themselves with the word of God!
They need to:

  • read it
  • love it
  • memorize it
  • speak it
  • think on it
  • live by it daily

So, Just for Today, let’s put on the Zeal of the Lord!
Let’s zealously put on and wear His word in our mind and hearts, so that we can zealously perform the work He has planned for us to do for Him!

This is the last Devotional in the “Just For Today” series.
I hope this series has helped you to focus on living one day at a time for Him.
I hope it has shown you some things you either need to put off in your life or that you need to put on in your life.
And, if so, I pray you will continue daily to “put off the old” and “put on the new”

Tomorrow we will begin a short Devotional called “Spiritual Checkup”. This devotional will run for 13 days to help us finish out the month. I hope you will join me in this daily.
