Look Through God’s Eyes

18 For through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. ~ Ephesians 10:18-21

I was watching a show once, and it was a mother and daughter having a conversation. The daughter was telling her mother how she was nothing special. How her mother was great, was royalty, but she wasn’t. She wasn’t fearless, brave, or strong like she was. Her father was a no-one, so she was a no-one. That’s when her mother looked at her and said, you are my daughter. My blood runs through your veins, the moment you realize that is the moment things will change. That’s exactly how it is with us today. We are sons and daughters of God Most High, yet we hold on to our past as if it defines who we are today.

We may have scars from the wounds that have been healed. We may have scars from the sin we have been redeemed from, but they do not define us. We are defined by the one who healed us. The one who saved us. It isn’t us who saves, redeems, or heals ourselves or anyone else for that matter. It is Jesus. It’s by Jesus that we are saved, redeemed, healed. It is through Jesus that we are called sons and daughters of the Most High God. The moment we realize we are no longer our past but are a new creation in Christ Jesus, adopted sons and daughters of God Almighty, is the moment we will see who we truly are. That’s the moment we will see ourselves the way that God sees us.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Look Through God’s Eyes.
