It is easy to look into the mirror and point out all the things you don’t like about yourself. It is even easier to think back on your failures, your struggles, and just feel worthless sometimes. Viewing yourself this way is not only unhealthy but not something God would want for you. You need to learn to see yourself the way God sees you.
In order to understand how God views you, you need to look to scripture and have a firm foundation in your faith so no matter what anyone says, no matter what that voice in your head tells you, you are loved. You are not only loved but your life and what you do with it have incredible value to God. When we choose to walk in faith and allow Christ to live through us, we become the light of this world (Matthew 5:14.). God views you as a direct source of hope, love, and faith that can inspire others to not only seek Him but find understanding and faith in their own lives. How incredible is that
Whenever you struggle or are hurting, God hears you and He is right there with you (Psalm 34:15). He is your father in heaven and because His love is beyond the measure of what one person can give another here on earth, it is impossible for us to describe how much He loves us and how beautiful we are in His eyes. However, we know through faith and through action what our lives mean to God. His greatest gift to us shows how important, how valued, and how cherished we are in His eyes ( John 3:16) and no one can take that away from you. To truly see yourself through God’s eyes, you have to keep His promises close to your heart and trust that He loves you and values you just the way you are.
As you go through your days and weeks profess these scripture declarations over your life and know that no one can be better than the YOU God created!
Declare these 2 scriptures over yourself often:
“God, I thank you for keeping an eye on me and not losing sight of me. I thank you for keeping me as the “apple of your eye”, according to David’s prayer in Psalm 17:8.
“I praise you because you made me in such a wonderful way,” according to Psalm 139:14 (ESV)
