Beauty From Chaos

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
— Ecclesiastes 3:11
Beauty From Chaos

We serve the Creator of beauty. 

I have seen some breathtaking views of the nature that God has clothed in splendor. But YOU are the most beautiful of God's creation. 

Ecclesiastes 3 tells us that the Maker of Heaven and Earth makes everything beautiful in His time. 

If your life is looking more like a heap of disaster than something of beauty, just wait. Wait patiently because God can turn it into something Stunning and miraculous.

Life happens. In seasons. And we cannot always understand what God is doing. 

It is easy to praise Him when we are in a season of joy and laughter. It is harder to praise Him in seasons of pain and darkness. But, the same God is with you through them all. And He promises to turn it all into something beautiful. 

Even when the ruler of this world, our enemy, produces chaos, God is the One of order, harmony, and restoration. He has set the world in our hearts. If you look back to the original scripts, a better translation of "world" here is "eternity."

We will never fully understand all God is doing now to transform us and create something beautiful out of our lives. But, if we give our lives fully to Him, we will have all eternity to discover it in heaven above. 

He has given us a foreshadowing so we need not fear...

He hath made everything beautiful in His time. He hath set eternity in our hearts. 


To Ponder:

Do I have faith in the beauty God is creating in my life?


Prayer:

Heavenly Father, 

Thank You for making all things beautiful in Your timing. Help me to wait patiently on You. To praise and honor You in all the seasons of my life. To You be the glory for all harmony and restoration. 

Thank You in Jesus Name. Amen
