He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.” – Ecclesiastes 3:11

Let’s explore the profound wisdom hidden in the Chinese character for “Beautiful.” It’s like a divine puzzle, merging two characters: Lamb “羊” and Big “大.” When you layer the Lamb “羊” over Big “大,” a whole new word emerges – “Beautiful 美.”

This linguistic revelation is more than just words; it’s a spiritual compass, and I can interpret two impactful perspectives here.

Firstly, it’s a divine reminder that when we put our “Big” problems at the feet of the Lamb (of God), seemingly overwhelming situations can transform into something Beautiful. Genesis 50:20 emphasizes, “What the enemy intends for evil, God will use for good.”

Secondly, when we willingly subject our inflated egos to the Lamb, a profound beauty unfolds – a powerful act of surrendering our lives to God’s wisdom. In the words of 1 Peter 5:6, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”

Feeling weighed down by life’s challenges or the burden of pride? Take a moment. Envision yourself beneath the Lamb’s gentle embrace. Suddenly, the narrative shifts, and what felt like a heavy load transforms into something unexpectedly beautiful.

With a loving Lamb (of God) by your side, every external or internal obstacle becomes a stepping stone toward something incredible.

So, stand tall, remain humble, and trust that your Big God will orchestrate everything beautifully in His perfect time.
