Take a moment to consider this: How do you see yourself? Maybe you can think of a few good qualities or rely on past achievements to bolster your self-assessment. However, you probably also remember more than a handful of mistakes that could easily cancel out anything good. But do you know what’s really awesome? How God sees you. He sees you as precious and honored in his eyes. He sees you as being fearfully and wonderfully made. He made you new in him. He takes delight in you and that’s such good news. –Jeff Loman
In our blog today, let’s explore what Jeff said about how God sees you. We promise you’ll be both uplifted and “upcouraged” by what we see in His word!
GOD SEES YOU AS WONDERFULLY MADE
Oh, the wonders of our existence! From the intricacies of our DNA to the remarkable complexity of our minds, we are truly marvels of creation. God, in His infinite wisdom, crafted each of us with meticulous care. God sees you and molded you with your quirks, talents, and unique qualities. They’re are all part of His grand design.
In Psalm 139:14, King David rejoices, saying, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Yes, my friend, you are fearfully and wonderfully made! Even if you have a knack for accidentally spilling coffee or tripping over your own feet, know that God has a delightful sense of humor in creating you.
GOD SEES YOU AS PRECIOUS
Let’s talk about value. You are incredibly precious in the eyes of your heavenly Father. You are a priceless gem, cherished beyond measure. You may have experienced moments when you felt unnoticed or insignificant, but fear not! God sees you, and He values you more than you can fathom.
In Isaiah 43:4, God proclaims, “Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.” Isn’t it incredible? God treasures us so much that He is willing to exchange entire nations for our lives. In fact, he exchanged his own son for you (John 3:16). If that’s not a testimony to our worth in his eyes, we don’t know what is!
GOD SEES YOU AS MADE NEW
Life can leave us bruised, battered, and feeling far from our best selves. But here’s the good news: God is the ultimate expert in restoration and renewal. He specializes in taking our brokenness and making something beautiful out of it. When you surrender yourself to Him, God sees you as a new creation.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17, the apostle Paul writes, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” Embrace this truth, my friend! God offers us a fresh start, wiping away our past mistakes and transforming us from the inside out. It’s like getting a heavenly makeover without the need for any cosmetic surgeon!
LISTEN TO THE RIGHT VOICES
If we listen too much to the world and our culture today, they may say some truly terrible and incorrect things about you. We have all these outside influences that sometimes try to affect how we see ourselves. The only voice that should make a difference in your mind is the voice of the One who created you in the first place. What we need to ask ourselves is, “How does God see us?”
And he sees you as awesome.
As you go forth, armed with this knowledge, may you walk with confidence, radiating the beauty and worth that God sees in you. You are a masterpiece, a treasure beyond compare. So, let your light shine brightly and inspire others to see themselves through the eyes of their Maker.
