we are going to look here for a few days at how GOD sees you and me. i know HE loves us, HE sent HIS SON JESUS to die for us. HE loves us but how does HE really see us?
we’re going to look at seeing yourself as GOD sees you. that’s so important because the bible says, as a man thinks in his heart so is he. if you see yourself as a loser you’re going to be a loser in life. if you see yourself as a victim, you’re going to let other people victimize you all your life. if you see yourself as not too creative, you’ll never create anything. if you see yourself as a failure in life, you’re going to be failure. what you see is what you get.
the bible says our beliefs determine our behavior. the way we think determines the way we act. and what we see comes out in our lifestyle. our beliefs determine our behavior. the problem is a lot of stuff you believe is just false. it’s just not true. so you’re acting on false or inaccurate information about yourself.
we all grow up with these distorted images that we get from our parents, our peers, from other people, our problems. some of you can remember things that were said to you twenty or thirty years ago. “you’re never going to amount to anything…” and you just filed that. you’ve been acting on that information for a long, long time.
everybody has wounds. everybody has emotional scars. everybody reading this. everybody has emotional scars. so how do you get rid of them? how do you deal with the past?
the antidote is to learn to see your life, learn to see yourself, from GOD’s point of view. if you really grasp what it means to see yourself as GOD sees you, it’ll change your life. JESUS said, you know the truth and the truth will set you free. so when we learn to see ourselves the way GOD truly sees us it makes all the difference in the world.
just a thought from the front porch…
