You put on your new blue blouse, which happens to accentuate your blue eyes, and all day long you hear, “That color looks so good on you!” Or you find a dress that fits you perfectly and step out from the dressing room and your teen daughter says, “Oh Mom! That dress looks like it was made for you; that looks so good on you!”
We love it when we find that “just-right look,” don’t we? I have something for you to wear that will look perfect on you – as a matter of fact, I have God’s Word on it!
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
To be “comely” means attractive. This verse is telling us that praise looks good on a believer of Jesus Christ! I’ve made plenty of bad fashion choices in my lifetime, but when I use my mouth to praise the Lord, I’ve put on a perfectly beautiful accessory that will always look good!
How have you used your words today? Are they negative, complaints, whining or sarcastic? That doesn’t suit you, if you know Christ. Run to the dressing room of prayer, ask for forgiveness, then use your mouth to praise the Lord for Who He is and what He is doing in your life. That will look really good on you!
With praise to our God,
