What’s Beauty About?
True Beauty! Is Inward!
1 Peter 3: 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
Sisters! Sisters! Sisters! No matter how expensive your clothes are, the cream you use, shoes, jewelry, perfume and so much more, if you don’t feel beautiful in your inside it’s a waste because that ugliness you feel, the lie of the wicked one will always reflect in your words, attitude, behavior and so much more. True beauty is a fruit of a regenerated mind. Proverb 31:30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
It doesn’t matter if you got your shoes from value village, or Micheal Kors, and your purse from wherever, those things no matter how expensive or not, does not define your beauty. Your beauty my sisters is a gift from the Lord bestowed on you by Christ Jesus Himself through His mercy upon your ugliness on Calvary’s tree, turning it into eternal beauty. Your beauty is determined by who dwells in your heart. Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Sisters, you are daughters of a King, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords. Psalm 45:11 So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him. Do you get it now? The Kingmaker Himself delight in you! Can you fathom that? Psalms 45: 13 15 The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold. 14 She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You. 15 With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King’s palace.
This season, endeavor to come unto the Lord with an open heart, pour out your heart in praise and worship, put on the royal robes of many colors – Praise for the salvation of your soul and the privilege of living even at this hour with your right mind against all odds. I bet you have lots to thank God for! Isn’t it so? Rejoice and be glad my friends the Lord is waiting for you in The Palace – His throne of grace, mercy, peace and joy!
Welcome to your new beginning of inward beauty!
