I have all sorts of beauty products that promise all sorts of things. They will make my wrinkles go away, my hair soft and my skin smooth. But there is a disclaimer on the bottles. Warning: For external use only. They only promise to make me beautiful on the outside.
God’s word promises to change me on the inside.
“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.” Ezekiel 36:26 NLT
We can try to change the outside all we want. But no matter how much we try, it will leave us empty. We will never be satisfied until we ask God to change our heart. Only He can fill the emptiness in us. He fills our hearts with his love and promises us peace beyond understanding.
There’s nothing wrong with beauty products, but know that there is an even greater beauty to be found. Ask God to give you a new heart for him. And the truth is, God will not only change you internally, he will transform your entire life. There is no greater beauty than a life lived for Christ!
