You Are Beautiful

Psalms 147:4-5 “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.”

Think of a bright starry night. Have you ever looked up at night and see trillions of stars, a number so beyond our comprehension – way too many to count? It says in scripture that God has a name for each and every star! Not only did He create each one, unique in glory and brilliance, but He also has a special name for each star. That’s so unbelievably amazing!

This God who made all of these stars and named them personally also made you! And because you’re made in His image, a star can’t compare to the beauty God has bestowed on you as a human being. You are at the top of His creation.

If magnificent stars are beautiful, and you are beautiful, and all the rest of creation is beautiful…how beautiful is Jesus Christ, the glorious One who created all of these things? He is so much more beautiful than all the beautiful things combined.

And He is so deserving in our trust in Him.

God is Personal

Our God is personal. Very personal. All you have to do is think deeply and meditate on how our bodies are made. Our brain, so complex that science will never be able to fully understand. Our hearts, beating steadily and continuously our entire lives. Our lungs, our eyes, our veins, our fingers, our tastebuds, teeth, eyelashes, stomach, bones, blood, and all of the intricate and harmonious parts that hold us together. It’s incredible, and shows us that we are made with love, care, wisdom, desire…and it’s personal. We didn’t just appear here out of nowhere with no supreme intelligent love behind it. Just look at our ability to analyze, think, perceive, feel, love, cry. Feel sadness, hurt, pain, sorrow, anger. Feel joy, excitement, humour. Experiencing laughter. Mental capacities, rationalizations, solving problems, and ability to feel deep emotion does not evolve from a blob in the water. 

We are elaborately made, complex beings, created by an immeasurably intelligent, complex God. When we start become aware of this, our eyes become open to the reality of who He is. We fall into our true human purpose – to be in a loving relationship with our Creator. Outside of this, everything else is chasing the wind until we’re gone forever. He is worth knowing and worth loving.

He is great. Incredible. Magnificent. Beautiful. Majestic. Good. Thrilling.

Personal. Look at His creation.💛🌻
