Isaiah 43

  • February 7, 2012 11:26 am

But now, O Israel, listen to the LORD who created you. The One who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

“You have been chosen to know Me, believe in Me, and understand that I alone am God. There is no other God— there never has been, and there never will be. I, yes I, am the LORD, and there is no other Savior. First I predicted your rescue, then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world. No foreign god has ever done this. You are witnesses that I am the only God,” says the LORD. “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of My hand. No one can undo what I have done.”

“I am the LORD, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

“I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so My chosen people can be refreshed.

“I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for My own sake and will never think of them again. I have made you for My glory; it was I who created you.  You are precious to Me.  You are honored, and I love you.”

hello beautiful

“Clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” 1 Peter 3:4

Everyone wants to be beautiful.

Beautiful.   What does that even mean?

The word  beautiful  encompasses many meanings for many people across countries and cultures.  It describes people and places, emotions and feelings. It relays what we see with our eyes and feel in our hearts.

The definition says:  having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about; delighting the senses or mind.   It is a somewhat generic word, thought by each individual to have a very specific meaning. For most, it is an ideal to aspire to.

Where do we find our beauty?

The saying goes,  beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So the real question is not, “Am I beautiful?”  The question is, “Whom should I ask?”  Ask the Father.  Ask the God who made you more beautiful than you can even imagine. You are beautiful to Him without even trying.  You don’t have to change or perform.  You just have to be.
