The God of Fashion

Hello Everyone,

When we feel lonely, worried, or are facing our own problems in life, we tend to turn to materialistic things such as: money, clothes, sex, or other negative things that temporarily satisfy us, they make us feel better and help us forget about our problems for a while. It is time for us to seek Jesus when we feel lost and short on His faith; instead of looking at material things as our Gods to happiness. Learning to recognize Jesus as my savior was something that I learned the hard way because back then I did not know much about Jesus; I was not close to Him as my savior. I would worry a lot about trying to look good by wearing the latest fashion clothes, or only wanting to go to the mall to buy the greatest quality clothes that was kind of expensive. I often wanted to look at materialistic things as my saviors to happiness and false confidence.

The Fashion Idolatry Prayer:
“O fashion, O great redeemer
Save us from our misery
Heal our brokenness
Take away our loneliness
Extinguish our ugliness
Give us value and worth
That we may feel beautiful
And all our problems will disappear
You are our savior and god
And we will purchase you all of our days.”

-(Taken from Fervr.net)

What is Idolatry?
Idolatry means putting more importance in something instead of focusing your whole heart in Jesus Christ as your savior everyday.

How God describes idolatry as:

My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.”
-Jeremiah 2:13

We all need God just like we all need the air to be able to breathe. God can give us what we need, only Him, no other thing can replace Him.

Is Fashion your God?

As you think about this, ask yourself these questions:

1. Are you trying to get something from fashion that only Jesus can give?

2. Are you using fashion to try and make yourself feel valuable? Or looking to the infinite value Jesus has given you?

3. Are you using fashion to take away your loneliness? Or looking for the love of Jesus?

“Fashion is a poor God. Jesus is infinitely better.”

Prayer to turn to Jesus:

“Jesus, O great Redeemer
Save us from our eternal misery.
Heal our brokenness
Take away our loneliness
Extinguish our ugliness
You give us value and worth
Now we are beautiful in your eyes
And all our sins will disappear
You are our savior and God
And we will worship you all of our days.”
