God made everything good,but sin turns it ugly. In Genesis 1:31 it says, “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day”. Then in James 1:17 it says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. And Psalms 103:5 says, “Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”. So the question is why,so many people spend millions of dollars on plastic surgery,body piercing,tattoo’s,and make up daily,yet they are never satisfied. They have many different reasons for looking beautiful or staying young yet they fail to realize that plastic surgery and all the make-up in the world may keep the face young but the body will still deteriorate. Your age will still continue to rise as the years pass you by. In Ecclesiastes 3:11-13 it says,
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God”.
God had to have been thinking about the escalation of make up and plastic surgery when he asks in Matthew 6:27, “which of you by worrying can add an hour to your lives?” Technically if you are worrying about how you look this scripture fits the topic.
The following scriptures tell us in Psalms 139:14, that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Then in Ecclesiastes 3:11 it states that “He hath made everything beautiful in its time…” In Genesis 1:26 we see that God made us from His image and likeness and it also states in the 31 verse that “God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good.” Everyone, I must ask you, why are you so worried and concerned about your looks? Does it boost your confidence? And if it does boost your confidence shouldn’t the scripture do a better job?
When you try to alter your appearance to look beautiful on the outside you must keep in mind that if there is no inner beauty even the prettiest woman can look hideous. However not having inner beauty is not where this message ends. When you change your features you are slapping God in the face for every little thing you dislike. You may not think this is possible but understand this when you change your appearance you are telling God, your creator, that you don’t like what He created, what he himself deems as beautiful. Trying to change your appearance is saying you are not beautiful nor fearfully and wonderfully made. Be very careful how you insult God my friends.
The sad thing about today’s society is that some men seem to be occupying and competing for the mirror just as much as women are if not more. That only informs us that people are more self-conscious than God is conscious. People don’t deny yourselves, take up the cross and follow Jesus. If you are not happy with yourself, don’t expect others to be happy with you. Nothing or rather no one can stop the aging process except God, our Creator. He guarantees us eternal Life through Jesus Christ, which is the only way and the truth (John 6:40; John 14:6).
Whatever happened to having “the beauty of Jesus be seen in me, all His wonderful compassion and purity.” When you allow Jesus to come into your life, it is the only time you will have beauty all throughout your being. Accept God’s gift of His only begotten son ( Jesus Christ) so that His beauty can radiate through you. Please go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.
