The nature of God and who He is, is something that we will learn all through eternity, and still not come to the end of it. So Great is His beauty! The Psalmist said it this way:
“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD..” Psalm 27:4
The beauty of God’s Nature is filled with UNENDING GOODNESS toward you and me. One such unique character of God, is His nature to cover our shortcomings, sins and our failures.
We all have had incredible Mothers whose gentleness and compassion can compare to none other, right? Can you ever imagine a Mother going to your neighbor and revealing all of your wrong-doings or weaknesses? I can never imagine my Mom do that! The World may shake and Skies fall down, but to a Mom, her kids are the Best!
It does not matter what A, B or C may say or think, a Mother, would never expose the weaknesses of her beloved Child.
When an earthly Mother has such a heart by nature, how much more God! God never exposes His Children to shame them. His heart is always bent toward covering our sins.
“….love covers all sins.” Pro 10:12
While Satan has always been finding ways to bring Shame to Adams race since the garden, Jesus is always looking for ways to restore Honor back to us.
When people look at us, it is possible that they see us through the lens of our shortcomings. But God’s eyes always look past our outward shortcomings and sees the diamond within.
Jesus always did this. Whether it was the sinner woman whom he rescued from being stoned to death, or the Samaritan woman who had lost all dignity of life amongst the people she lived with, because of her multiple marriages, or the blind man whom he embraced when the Pharisees cast out as a sinner – Jesus valued every single one of them!
Jesus met them to remove their disgrace and clothe them with Honor. He still does that today!
When all the world sees our weaknesses and failures, there is a Father in Heaven who sees the diamond within, because He values us and takes Great Delight to Honor us.
“I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor.” Isaiah 45:4.
