Matthew 6:28-29 (KJV); And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
The scriptures provide a deeply illuminating description of Solomon’s apparel and majestic appearance through the eyes of the queen of Sheba.
In 1 Kings 10:4-5, the Bible says, “And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built, And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her.”
Solomon and his household were the epitome of all things beautiful by human standards.
However, when we come to the New Testament, Christ tells us that not even Solomon in all his glory can compare, in beauty, to the lilies of the field which are dressed by God.
The message herein is that no human effort at beautification can ever compare to what God can do when He chooses to beautify your life.
You are a work of God. Nothing can ever outdo God in His works.
I urge you to embrace this truth as the reality of your life. God wants you to be surrounded by beauty, right from your dressing to the place you live because He is in the business of beautifying lives.
Never live life with the attitude of one who thinks that their lot in life is squalor and everything that represents mediocrity.
As God’s work, you have been made to shine, to excel and to consistently attract beauty.

GOLDEN NUGGET: No human effort at beautification can ever compare to what God can do when He chooses to beautify your life. You are a work of God. Nothing can ever outdo God in His works.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this knowledge. I know who I am in You. You have placed beauty and excellence within and around me. I reject the testimony that presents me as anything less. My marriage, business, career, ministry, relationships and destiny are beautified by You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
