What Makes a Woman Beautiful in God's Eyes?

 

BEAUTIFUL IN GOD'S EYES

There are few questions I’m asked more than, "What makes a woman beautiful in God’s eyes?"

The simplest answer is devotion and time. Nothing that grand happens overnight. It takes daily surrender and making God’s Word your highest priority. You are a diamond in the rough. And you gain the power of character and begin to more clearly reflect your heavenly Father’s face as His Word smooths and polishes your character. 

As you spend time gazing into God’s Word, the light of His truth brightens your motivation to live your life for His glory. When you read the Word of the Lord, He uses it to scrub and scour away your fears, your laziness, your doubts, and your sinful ways.

God uses His Word to transform you into a woman of divine power who reflects His beauty. This is what makes a woman beautiful in God’s eyes.

WOMAN OF GOD

Once you begin to see your transformation taking hold, other aspects of your life will be different. Those who are close to you will comment on your loving, Godly marriage because they see God reflected so vividly in yours. Your children will rise and call you blessed! This is what happens when we surrender our hearts to God. He transforms us from the inside, out and that is what true beauty is all about.

Another very sweet and special change takes place when we begin to be transformed by our loving Father, we’ll also be motivated to take better care of ourselves.

HABITS OF A WOMAN AFTER GOD'S HEART

Over the years, there are four things I’ve strived to do each day to show Him how much I cherish the vessel He’s given me.

  1. Dress up—Queen Esther, chose to wear her royal robes into the presence of her husband, the king (Esther 5:1). The Proverbs 31 woman wore silk and purple (Proverbs 31:22). These women dressed with a touch of class, wearing what was right for the occasion and proper in her day and time.
  2. Fix up—You can make an effort to create a pleasing appearance. Think about the people who fill your day. What will they see? Fresh face, hair, and makeup? Clean, wrinkle-free, spot-free, odor-free clothes? A bright smile and a little color here and there?
  3. Clean up—Proverbs teaches that “ointment and perfume delight the heart” (Proverbs 27:9). Both are pleasant and heartwarming and indicate that someone has gone to the trouble to spruce up. Plus, the Bible mentions washing oneself over and over again.
  4. Look up—Throughout your day look up to the Lord. Pray to Him, think on Him, serve Him, worship Him, do all unto Him, obey Him, and love Him with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind (Luke 10:27). As you are consciously aware of His presence, His beauty will shine through your efforts. And then He is glorified (Matthew 5:16)!

RESPOND IN PRAYER

Dear Lord, Scripture tells us what true beauty is—to love and revere You. Help me be a woman of strong, godly character … a woman who is beautiful in Your eyes. Amen.
