How often during the day, do we lose sight of who we are in the eyes of God?
This past week I allowed myself to feel defeated in an area of life, but then, deep within my spirit I heard … “if you had seen yourself through MY eyes, you would not have been diminished.” Wow, how blessed to have a loving Father God who reminds us how HE sees us.
We are God’s Masterpiece, created with plan and purpose, “plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope*!” In His eyes, we are now a new creation ~ no matter what is in our past; no matter what others have said; no matter how we feel on any given day. Be renewed and refreshed for His Word says:
“Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ, he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!” … 2 Corinthians 5:17
We are a new creation, but our mind, will and emotion must renew its thinking! In Mark Hankins book, “Taking Your Place In Christ,” he wrote:
“Even though you are a new creature in Christ, you are still acting like the world and your spirit is held hostage to an unrenewed mind, feelings, and emotions…. You will never be what God intends for you to be until your mind, will and emotions are dominated by God’s Word. When you feed your spirit on the Word and allow the Holy Spirit to work in you, your mind will be renewed.”
We have a choice to make. To see ourselves as HE does, and to walk in that strength, power and truth, we must choose to open our hearts to His Love and truths; get into God’s Word (spend time with Him, get to know His character; His promises; His will); and we need to allow His Word to influence how we think, act and speak.)
