Behold Your God

There is nothing in this life that can compare to the beauty of God. Bangles and baubles may temporarily catch my eye, but their charm fades when compared to the loveliness of the One who holds me in the hollow of His hand. Worldly pleasures may satisfy for a season, but how soon they fade and disappoint! There is One who is beautiful. There is One who is the fairest of them all. Consider:

God stands alone. His excellence, unsurpassed. “Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11)

God is great. “Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:3b-4)

There is no standard outside of Himself to which we can compare God in order to pronounce Him good. No, He is the standard. Simply put, God IS good. “The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (Psalm 145:9)

God is Holy. There is no darkness, no blemish in Him. “God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.” (I John 1:5)

God is love. His love is boundless and vast,  inexhaustable and unlimited. “By this we know love, because he laid down His life for us.” (I John 3:16a)

God is able to save to the utmost. Who can really save the soul of a man, except God? “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” (John 3:16)

One could spend a life time, an eternity really, and never tire of gazing at such beauty as this. How beautiful is our God! Delight yourself in His loveliness. Meditate on the exquisiteness of His character. Lose yourself in the gorgeousness of Grace. Behold!

By His Grace,
