Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel..
The prophet Zechariah once had a vision in which the high priest of Israel in post-exilic times, a man named Joshua, stood before the Lord in filthy garments. Joshua was embarrassed, especially because Satan was there, pointing out every flaw and failure. But the Angel of the Lord--likely a reference to Christ...issued a command: "Take away the filthy garments from him...See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes." Joshua was clad in clean clothes and equipped to minister without sin or shame, and Satan was defeated.
We are God's people even when others treat us like underdogs, even when Satan makes us feel like second-class citizens, even we're down on ourselves. We're valuable to God. He loves us, and Jesus died to cleanse our sins, to clothe us with the garments of Hid righteousness, and to use us for His glory.
If you've had some kind of failure or relapse, don't dwell on it. Confess it. If others look down on you, don't obsess over it. Keep your eyes on the Lord.
