God does not do anything in haste. When He acts, He creates beauty. He is unconstrained by dimensions or time or space, or human opinion or expectations or prejudices. His measure of success is that His will has been done, and His will is always done (Isaiah 55:11).
The thing that God impressed on me today, as I was praying, was that His work is always beautiful. We may not see the beauty. It may take 1,000 years before any son or daughter of Adam perceives its beauty. Perhaps, no child of Creation will even discover the beauty God has placed in His work, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look for it, for it is always there. Great tragedy can still contain beauty, for, on God’s timeline, tragedy lasts for a moment, but the beauty of God’s fulfillment will last for eternity.
God Creates Beauty Through His Children
This truth of God is at work within all believers. John 15:16-17, “You did not choose me, but I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will give you. 17 “This is what I command you: Love one another.
Exodus 28:2 – And you shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty.
Psalms 50:2 – Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
Isaiah 53:2 – You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Romans 8:28 – Let’s be slow to judge “We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.”
