1. God Dont Like Ugly
Perhaps those who say this may mean or hint at Galatians 6:7, ” Do not be decieved, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, he shall reap.” What man calls “ugly”, whether in appearnace or attitude, may not be, and usually isn’t, the same perspective God has of a person or thing.
2. God Helps Those That Help Themselves
This is simply not found in the Bible. Nor is it true. The crippled man of 38 years as told in the gospel couldn’t help himself nor did he have any friend to help him, yet Jesus still delivered him from his physical and mental bondage in one day, with one command!
The only verse that may be close to this concept, but is actually different, is found in Luke 11:9,10. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh reciveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh is shall be opened.”
3. God Dont Bless Mess
This is also not true. Not only do I have personal testimonies against this, but going to an earlier, biblical source, the worse “mess” I have known is told in II Samuel 11:1-27. After David committed adultery with his best army commander’s wife, planned and executed his murder, married & impregnated his widow, God still blessed him by using his second child to carry out the lineage and promise initailly made to him ( to build a House/Throne for the Lord that he would reign over). Not only that, God considered David a ‘true’ servant!!!
