I am fascinated by clouds. I could spend hours looking at them in the sky. Recently I was looking at the clouds, and when the sun is behind the clouds, it radiates such beauty! The clouds shine a light, and it’s breathtaking.
As women, we are like clouds in the sky, when we are filled with Jesus, we radiate a beauty from the inside out.
We are meant to live from the inside out, letting the love of Christ inhabit us so fully that it radiates within us and shines His light.
Over the next three weeks, I’ll share ways we can radiate beauty from the inside out. Today we’ll start with the first way, which is to spend time with Jesus.
Psalm 34:5 says, Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
The Greek word for Radiant is Nawhar (pronounce Naha). It means to shine or to beam. Isn’t that amazing??
We have the secret to lasting beauty that almost every woman is looking for, and it can’t be bought at Sephora. It’s found when we spend time with Jesus.
An example in scripture of someone who radiated with God’s glory is Moses. Moses was so intimate with God that he spoke with Him face to face.
Exodus 33:11 says, Inside the tent of meeting, the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.
Exodus 34:29, says, Moses’ face became so RADIANT when he conversed with the Lord that he had to veil his face to come into the presence of the Israelites.
This is the beauty we want! While we can’t see Jesus face to face here on earth, we can spend time with Him through prayer.
True inner beauty is impossible outside of Christ. If we obtain a worldly outer beauty, we only have a hollow, fleeting beauty that quickly fades with time and age.
So this week, make time for Jesus. Let’s be women who radiate the light of Jesus!
