We hear things about ourselves all day, whether it's our own approval or disapproval, or remarks from others. We coat ourselves in characteristics, and seem to easily forget what God says about us because we're too focused on our own perceptions of who we are.
So I thought I would write a post for you guys to remind you of what the Maker says you are. Take these to heart- they are true and come from the lips of an Almighty Unstoppable God. This is what God says you are:
God defines us as full of his deep love & that's the sweetest thing to me. That's what is seen when God looks at you- abounding love from Maker to child. Evidence of this love is shown in scripture again and again- below are some verses that talk about how we are so loved by God.
1 John 3:1
We are made from God, in God's image. God sees us as beautiful- we'e His work! The Maker of every single thing on earth chose to sculpt the exact features of our faces, and each unique thing about our appearance, and calls us beloved and beautiful for each little aspect.
Filled with purpose.
We can get into a habit of seeing ourselves as meaningless, but God combats that lie, giving us the truth that we are filled with meaning and purpose. God calls us to follow the path that he created for us, and it's really beautiful to see they way the Lord defines us as meaningful and here for a reason, with a God-created and God-glorifying purpose.
2 Thessalonians 2:14
Forgiven & Made New.
In God's eyes, we are constantly washed clean and forgiven for our sins. Because of Christs's love for us, we aren't chained to our sin. Isn't that so cool! When our Maker sees us, we are clean and new- the old robe is gone.
2 Corinthians 5:17
1 John 1:9
Alive in Christ.
God sees us as fully alive in faith. We aren't seen as dead in our sin and we aren't seen as weary or burdened... we are seen by God as alive in the realest and sweetest sense, filled with His spirit! Also, bear in mind that this doesn't pertain jut to our earthly lives lived in faith. We have eternal and everlasting life with our Maker!
