1. What changes would we make to our lives if we sought the Lord with all of our hearts?
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” Matthew 6:29-30
God provides for His children. Jesus tells us what we should be focused on:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33
When we seek the Lord with all our hearts, we will find Him, and He will supply all our needs.
2. How would our lives change if we prayed to behold the beauty of the Lord each morning, each afternoon, each evening?
One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord
And to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4
David had one priority: to meditate on the beauty of the Lord. He had confidence that God answers prayer, and he acted as if God had given his desire.
3. What if we presented our bodies as living offerings, true worship? Romans 12:1
Give to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! 1 Chronicles 16:29
The Creator of the universe, our holy Father gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to pay for our sins, and He rose from the dead to conquer death. He now sits at the right hand of God advocating in our behalf. All this, so that we could live with Him forever.
We owe our eternal life to Jesus.
4. What if we lived with the conviction that God looks upon us as His poem, His beauty?
For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. Psalm 96:4-6
The Lord made the heavens and the earth. He created you and me because He loved us before the foundation of the world. He calls us His workmanship, His poem (poiēma), Ephesians 2:10
Holy Father, Thank You for displaying Your beauty in nature. The artistry of Your creation amazes us. You have created colors, textures, fragrances, shapes, and light to point us to Your glory, Your holiness, and Your love for us. Lord, You have blessed us. You have provided for us. You have loved us. You have given us Your all. You have redeemed us. You have given us eternal life. You are beautiful. You are holy. You are majestic. You are God Almighty. You ARE! Amen.
