Beauty of the Lord

Allow Jesus the Sun of Righteousness, to shine upon you the ray of His beauty. People will see Him in you.  This is the real beauty.  If you had fallen short of His glory, today He will restore it back to you, when you call upon Him. He will bring salvation to your entire family. Psalmist David says Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved” (Psalm 80:3, 7).

There was a little girl Gladys Aylward, who was unable to accept the looks God had given her. As a child, she had two great sorrows. One was that while all her friends had beautiful golden hair, hers was black. The other was that while her friends were still growing, she had stopped growing. She was about four feet ten inches tall.  Years rolled on.  She grew up and committed her life to the service of God.  She reached the country to which God had called her to be a missionary.  She stood on the wharf in Shanghai and looked around at the people to whom God had called her. she said "Every single one of them had black hair. And every one of them had stopped growing when I did." She was able to look to God and exclaim, "Lord God, I now understand what You are doing in me!"
Beloved, though she had complaints in her childhood, she found meaning for everything when she surrendered her life to God’s call. As she allowed the Sun of Righteousness to shine through her, she found His beauty reflecting through her.  The Creator knows to bring out the real beauty in you. Remember, the Bible says “You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you” (Song of Solomon 4:7).  Be glad about how God has created you and surrender to the One ‘who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy’ (Jude 24). Today, say this small prayer: “Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon me” (Psalm 90:17).  
Prayer:
Dear Father, I thank You for having created me with a purpose.  I regret for the days I worried the way I am.  Make my heart Your abode.  Cleanse me of every shortcoming.  Let the inner beauty transcend and pierce the hearts of people, so that they might know You through me. Decorate me with the fruit of the Spirit.  I surrender myself to You.  Let the ‘Sun of Righteousness’ shine through me.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
