Often we are like that. We work so hard to make the outside look presentable. We want everyone to see that we have it all together. We may even find ourselves talking more about the makeup, the hair, the clothes, the weight, the body, etc. All along we may be totally neglecting what really matters – what’s inside. That’s what really counts. I’ve discovered that when the heart condition is right before God, the exterior is even more beautiful. It all falls into place.
Oh beloved! You are beautiful to the Lord! He calls you beloved and He has called you out of darkness into His light! He says to you this morning, do not weap for the outer person who may not be perfect, but rejoice for the inner person who is being perfected daily! My love for you is the inner love that abides no matter what. Let Me help you work on the inside so that My Home in your heart may be more accessible to Me. Don’t fear the work on the inside – it’s the best place to start!
God loves you just the way you are! God is for you and He’s working out everything for your good and His Glory! Let Him do whatever He wants to do with your life for that’s where True Beauty lies!
Ephesians 3:16 I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit.
2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
1 Peter 3:4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.1 Peter 3:4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.
