You are Beautiful!

Do you see yourself as beautiful? I try, but sometimes it is so hard! What if I were to tell you that the King of Kings thinks that you are beautiful, that He has actually commanded you to be beautiful. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, He hath made everything beautiful in His time: also He hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. Jesus Christ is making us beautiful, but only He sees the finished result. 

1 Peter 3:3-4 says, Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. Beauty is not in what we wear or what we look like, beauty is what God is doing in our lives and what He is making us. 

In Psalm 29:2 we are commanded to worship the Lord in this beauty. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The beauty of holiness, that is what God sees, that is what God wants to see. Our heart is what is most important to Him. He is making us beautiful, if we focus on being beautiful in holiness we will shine from the inside out.
