God created you just the way you are. Whether you are tall, short, shy, outgoing, funny or serious, He knew His plan for you and put into you the qualities you would need to live out your destiny. And after He put His hand on you to shape you into the person He wanted you to be He said, “It is good!”
No matter how anyone else sees you, in spite of how friends and family look at you, in spite of how people at work see you, in spite of how you see you, He said, “IT IS GOOD!” You are unique and beautiful to Him.
My desire for you is that you see yourself as Jesus see you. That means laying down and surrendering other people’s opinions. That means surrendering your own opinion of yourself so that you can see yourself as He sees you.
How do I know the truth about how He views you? After all, I don’t even know you. Everything we believe, whether it be our worldview, our religious beliefs, or our opinion of ourselves must be filtered through the truth of His Word. The world will not always tell us the truth. People around us are imperfect so their opinions will be imperfect. We have been affected by our past, our current circumstances and have emotions that constantly change and skew our opinion of ourselves.
BUT HIS WORD IS PERFECT!!! It is the meausuring rod we can hold everything up to for clarity. So read on and find out what he thinks of you.
PSALMS 139:1-5, 13-18
“You have searched me, Lord you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
You are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue You, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and YOU LAY YOUR HAND UPON ME.“
“For you created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts,
God how vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake I am still with you.”
Don’t be limited by what others think of you. Don’t be held back by your opinion of yourself. I pray that when you look at yourself in the mirror you would begin to see yourself as your Creator intended you to be.
You are beautiful. You are loved. You are created for a purpose.
