Meaning of Lovely: Affectionate, lovable
Lovable. That is a really big word. Do you know the extent that people will go to in order to prove that they are lovable? People enter into marriages, take all sorts of abuse in the name of love and exchange their authentic selves to be loved and accepted by other individuals, groups and sometimes even organizations. People jump through hoops and jump over tall buildings in a single bound just to be found to be lovable. Lovability and acceptance go hand in hand. Isn’t it good to know that you are loved by God. He has set his love upon you and you are accepted by Him in His beloved Jesus Christ. No more hoops, no more buildings, no more bad relationships. You are loved and you are lovely.
The only thing left for you to do is to worship the God who is so attracted by your loveliness in His sight. That is the proper response to our Father and King. The Bible says of Him that He is altogether lovely. Everything that he does for us is full of affection and care for our well-being. Before we even call Him, he answers. He sustains our lives everyday before we even think to ask for what we need. We are always on His mind and he shows it sometimes in the smallest of things. Gratitude has to be our posture continually before our God. As we are in His divine Image, we must reciprocate and allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct us into those activities that cause us to worship Him with our very lives. There is a song I love, “When I think of the goodness of Jesus and all He has done for me, my very soul cries out alleluia, I thank God for saving me.”
Father God, I thank you that I am lovely in your sight. I thank you that I am lovable. I don’t have to perform anything. I don’t have to go out of my way to be acceptable to you and for you to love me. Father, God if there are any relationships in my life that are causing me to act outside of the revelation that I am loved and accepted for the unique person that you have created me to be give me the strength and courage to bring them into divine alignment or to walk away if it is causing me to miss your perfect will for my life. Search my heart O God and see if there be any hidden area that is not yielded to your will today. Expose it so that I can release it to you so that I can walk in the fullness of the attribute of lovely and loveliness in my life. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you O Lord my Savior and Redeemer.
