Yesterday I posted a picture of my disheveled little self and challenged you to share pictures of your beautiful selves with me. (TamarKnochel@gmail.com – let me know if I can share them, I won’t unless I have permission.) When the first one came in I was so struck by the Spirit at how beautiful He feels we are. And then He started singing:
“You are so beautiful, to Me.
Can’t you see?
You’re everything I hoped for,
You’re everything I need.
You are so beautiful, to Me!”
He wasn’t just singing to me in my brokenness or even to the beauty whose picture I was beholding, it was, no IS, His song to all of us. To YOU personally. In today’s scripture God told Peter, “What God has made clean, do not call common.” Acts 10:15
In the early days of the Bible God pulled Abram aside and told him he was special, that God wanted to make a holy nation through Abram. And Abram believed Him. That very nation grew rapidly and became more numerous than the sand at the sea or the stars in the sky. When Christ died on the cross He died for ALL mankind. His blood cleanses EVERY heart that believes; which brings them into the family of God.
God has made you clean. He has declared you as holy and set apart for His good purposes, don’t you dare consider yourself common! You have the blood of JESUS covering your nakedness, cleansing your wounded-ness, filling in your imperfections, declaring you pure, righteous and beautiful in His sight. And there is NOTHING common or ordinary about that!
You are so beautiful to Him.
