My Flawless Razor
You are altogether beautiful, my darling;
there is no flaw in you.
~Song of Songs 4:7 NIV
A couple of years ago I was shopping at the “As seen on TV” store and saw this facial razor called “Flawless”. I hadn’t seen the commercials, but the display and packaging enticed me enough to purchase. As I age, I’ve been collecting quite the
extensive collection of products and tools to help stay looking my best. The razor does work really well and makes my face feel amazingly smooth, but it doesn’t make my face flawless as the name implies. It’s still me, just without the peach fuzz. 🙂
You Are Flawless
Flawless just seems like something that can only be achieved by a magazine graphic designer skilled with an airbrush and a picture of a model, so when I read today’s verse while doing my personal devotions, I was kind of shocked.
I’ve read through Songs of Songs before but never noticed what this verse said, and what that implies for you and me. Since the book is partly an allegory of the relationship with Christ and the church this holds a lot of weight in your relationship with Him. To think that God sees us as flawless is almost incomprehensible… but true. Girl, you are fearfully and wonderfully made! When God looks at you, He sees ‘no flaw in you’!
Today, look in the mirror with new eyes. Ask God to help you see what He sees… like the face, not the fuzz!
Father…Your Word blows me away. There’s so much in it that I just can’t wrap my brain around. How You love me seems undeserved, but when I try to understand that you see me as your daughter, your ‘son’ I’m overwhelmed by the way You include me in Your family and how You see me as flawless. In Jesus Name…Amen
IF YOU’RE STILL STRUGGLING TO BELIEVE THAT GOD SEES YOU AS FLAWLESS…
Make sure to listen to the #musicpic below and check back on the blog next Monday to read the Devotion, Who Are You Wearing? I think it will help you believe it a little more. This is what God’s using to help me believe this truth. I am flawless in His eyes. YOU are flawless in His eyes!
