See yourself through God’s mirror
Many of us have trouble with our image and identity…We criticize our character, intellectual ability, and behavior.
Today, I’d like you to reconcile with yourself and even dare to go further: learn to love yourself as God loves you! For you are God’s masterpiece, the work of His hands, as we’ve seen the last few days. The psalmist rejoices in this truth in Psalm 139:14, saying, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” (the Bible, NKJV)
And it’s not about stroking your ego, or making you proud, but recognizing that God did something incredible when He created you…
So, if you underestimate or sell yourself short, know that God only notices your qualities, your value, when He looks at you. Because all your failings, the sins you’ve confessed, are forever erased. We’ll discuss this very important point tomorrow.
You may have difficulty declaring this sentence, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” *|FNAME|*…
- Due to a painful past,
- Hurtful words spoken against you,
- Because of a physical defect,
- Or because of a disability that’s making you suffer.
I understand. But know this: God wants to heal the way you see yourself. His love can heal every wound: wounds of the past, the soul, the heart, and the body.
That’s why I invite you to declare to God that the way you see yourself will change! It will be in agreement with what God sees and says about you.
Before praying together, I’d like to thank Gracia for her testimony of God’s powerful love that changes thoughts and hearts: “Since I signed up for ‘A Miracle Every Day,’ the thought that I’m unwanted has left me. I regularly proclaim that I am wanted by God and that I’m loved and known by Him. I am a unique creation in God’s hands! My life has completely changed.”
Would you like to pray with me?…“Thank You, Lord, for fearfully and wonderfully making me. Help me to love myself the same way that You love me. To see myself through Your eyes and not mine. I give You all my wounds. And I praise You for who You are and for who I am. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
Do you feel His loving gaze upon you?
