Have you ever imagined yourself standing before God? Who does HE see?
In truth, as a believer … our loving God looks at you and me blameless and righteous!
Instead of seeing everything we’re ashamed of, or disappointed about;
instead of seeing us defeated or a failure;
instead of seeing us sick or disfigured …
as believers in Jesus Christ, God sees us blameless and righteous!
Righteous ~ In right standing before God. Because of Jesus’s sacrifice for us, we are redeemed (freed from distress; released from blame and consequences of sin) and we are in right standing before God! What a gift, if we receive it!!
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood.” Romans 3:23-25
Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:30
Knowing what scripture says, can you truly see yourself standing in front of Father God … clean, without guilt, condemnation or inferiority?
How do you change the negative, destructive thoughts? As you receive God’s gift to you through Jesus Christ ~ you receive God’s everlasting, unconditional love. As you study His scriptures you begin to renew your thinking ~ seeing yourself through His loving eyes!
I pray you can see yourself as God does ~ for you ARE God’s Masterpiece!
I encourage you to re-read Psalm 103.
