Behold means "to see or observe something remarkable or impressive". I cannot think of anything more impressive than God's creation of us. Eyes that take in light to see. Ears that take in sounds to hear. Feet and legs that walk. Hearts that beat. Hands to hold.
Do you behold the truth that YOU WERE CREATED JUST AS GOD INTENDED YOU TO BE?
That nose of yours, He made that. That frame of yours, He put it together. Your hair, your cheeks, your feet, your knees. All of this, woven together by our Creator.
Nothing about you was an accident. The God of the Universe doesn't make flawed creations. The bible says you are "fearfully and wonderfully made. His works are WONDERFUL."
Does your creation bring you WONDER? Does your view of others' creations cause you to MARVEL at the brilliance of God?
It's easy to be critical of ourselves and others. When we criticize our appearance or someone else's appearance, are we telling our Maker that He didn't do good enough?
We behold the ads on tv or in magazines that say what beauty is.
We behold others' opinions of us, exalting them to such a position that we allow those opinions to shape how we view ourselves.
We behold what social media says, taking in hundreds of images a day, which shapes our self image.
We forget that we are God's treasured creation.
Behold: YOU ARE CREATED JUST AS GOD INTENDED.
Stop beholding lies. Behold your BEAUTY.
