August 22, 2010, "God Is Enthralled By Your Beauty" Introduction

Triumphant Victorious Reminders

As mentioned in my last post...for the next few weeks, I will be inserting excerpts from each chapter of my book, "God Is Enthralled by Your Beauty".

Today's excerpt is from the introduction of the book:

The power of beauty seems to have disappeared and all that remains is the cloud of smoke that has sadly settled with perversion. The world’s definition of beauty mutilates and destroys as shallowness attempts to replace the true definition of depth.

This is a charge to all women, from the young to the elderly! We must know and realize the power of beauty and purity. The power of purity is not to be confused with timidity or fear; but beauty and purity of the Lord avails powerful strength; revealing who He is. We have tremendous responsibility to stand in our rightful place as daughters of the King. We must break down the walls of seclusion, insecurity, shame and masculinity disguised as feminism. We are not called to be men; we are called to be women of grace, executing righteousness.

Imagine for a moment, looking into the loving eyes of God. I believe we would be pleasantly surprised to see His beautiful princess, His beautiful daughter, adorned in His amazing love, forgiveness, mercy, peace, gentleness and faithfulness as precious jewels adorn the crown upon our heads. Realizing we are clothed in the finest linen the world has never seen, the linen of His grace. Our eyes filled with purity and gentleness.

Instead, many women look into the deceptive eyes of the enemy, clothed in torn, wrinkled, heavy garments of ugliness. The heavy coat of self-hatred, unforgiveness, judgment, anxiousness and depression is worn as the eyes of many are sadly filled with despair and hopelessness.

My beloved sister I believe that Jesus pleads with each of us and says, “No more my beautiful princess, I have delivered you from the lies of the enemy.” In the Word of God the Lord desires “…To give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”—Isaiah 61:3.

When reading this book I believe you will find the journey of falling in love with the little girl you once knew and bring her forth to know her rightful place as a daughter of the King. We must allow other daughters, once and for all to see the destructive and deceptive tactics of the enemy, seeing the transformation of God as they finally experience restoration and truth.

As you read this book, I pray you will allow Him to rescue you in His mighty arms of love and strength. More so, I pray you will only receive from this book what the Lord would have you to receive.

My great prayer of hope is that you choose to experience God's mighty power and majesty and that you will know, and confidently remember that “God is enthralled by your beauty.”
