I was astonished by the gorgeousness of his adornment of all things after reading a wonderful piece of scripture from my daily bible reading: “How the holy spirit adorns everything”. If he is able to decorate the environment around us so exquisitely, why can’t he do the same for us?
Let us take a moment to appreciate all that the Holy Spirit has adorned the sky with the sun shining brightly in the day, the glowing moon and stars in the night, the beautiful sunrise, the stunning sunset, and the clouds that look like cotton balls floating in the air. It’s amazing to me how He knows and calls each of His creations by name.
Now you may wonder if the Holy Spirit will only choose to beautify the heavens and the natural world, and not us.
So how can we let the holy spirit adorn us? Is the outward adornment going to help the holy spirit? No; A man requires an inner adornment. What is inner adornment?
In this wicked place, how do we make ourselves spiritually beautiful? The scriptures plainly state that God only loves those with a clean heart and spiritual beauty.
Isaiah proclaims that Jesus is the bridegroom and that he is joyfully adorned with spiritual beauty.
Can we adorn our souls spiritually? Scriptures definitely state that God adorns the meek heart. We often spend much effort on our clothing, makeup, and physical appearances. I’m no different, but what if we clothed our souls in love? Then there would be much fewer people with cold hearts. What if we devoted more time to refining our hearts, removing our flaws so that we could demonstrate to others that we are lovable as Jesus is?
Let us take a short time to contemplate how we can adorn our lives with benevolence, sympathy, and an eagerness to assist others.
I will do my best to be kind and compassionate every day for the remainder of my life because the beauty inside us can never be taken away. It can be hard to live up to this ideal, but when we open ourselves to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we can be filled with humility and love.
