THE BEAUTY-PARLOUR OF GOD
Beauty is very important to God and by extension to man.
God created the beautiful world. Have a look at the animals, see the combination of their colours and you will see God as the Great Beautician.
Have a look at the trees, their leaves, the flowers and the fruits. You will see paragon of beauty in dis play.
Look at man, the Asians, Indians, Americans, Europeans and Africans. You will see how God distinguished them in beauty. Then look at the people near you, their eyes, noses, size of mouth, ears, and shape of their heads, and other parts of their bodies. You will see uniqueness, beauty, and wonderful things to behold.
God made everything beautiful in diversity.
This same God had created a beauty parlour. Come inside and enhance your beauty as you follow me to the Bible.
Gen 12:14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. 15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.
At the age of sixty-five, this woman was beautiful enough to arrest the king of Egypt.
Genesis 20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
At the age of eighty- nine, her beauty was still arresting kings. What was the secret? She was in the beauty-parlour of God.
Exo 34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. 30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
Moses came down from the beauty-parlour of God and his face was shining beyond the understanding of the people.
God so much glorified Moses that the shinning glory was beyond the expectations of the people.
What did Moses do?
He was in the presence of God for some days.
Get inside a prayerful lifestyle and see how your face and skin will glow. Your youth will be renewed.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
What God did to Moses and Sarah, He is still doing it today.
2Kings 5:14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
Naaman was general in the army of Syria. He had been fighting wars and his body must be full of wrinkles and scars from wounds in the battle fields. When he met God, God put him through His beauty – parlour and his body became like that of a little baby –fresh.
Did he go for plastic – surgery? How much cream, mascaras, bases, tonners, lotions and a lot of other troubles we put on ourselves today. How much of them did he buy?
How much did he pay in spar or a beauty-parlour?
Come to God now, He will beautify you. Spend time with God and you will become younger in look and at heart.
No wonder those who pray a lot live longer. Give it a trial and you will testify about it.
