{ Day 202 }

The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. —Isaiah 60:19-20

One day we will gaze upon our Bridegroom God for billions of years at a stretch. This description and any other will seem pitiful in its attempt to convey the reality of Him, but we must understand as well as we can that our Bridegroom possesses a beauty that transcends any other in the created realm. He is far above all other magnificence and pleasure. His endless splendor shines forth from His tenderness, gladness, and desire for us. (Indeed, it's impossible to understand His beauty without first understanding His tenderness, gladness, and desire, for His beauty radiates from them.) As we encounter it through Scripture and by His revelation in our spirits, His beauty fascinates and captivates our hearts. He woos and wows us with magnificence.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, a billion years will seem as nothing when I stand before You and gaze into Your endless splendor. Teach me about Your tenderness, gladness, and desire so that I may fully comprehend Your beauty.

Being confident in God's love for you
is necessary to seeing God's beauty.
