How do you see yourself today?
What do you look at when you look in the mirror? What image do you see? What do you see staring back at you every morning?
I want you to listen what God says through Isaiah 62: 3-4. Listen to what God says that He sees when He looks at you.
You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no more be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate, but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, and your land Married; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married.
A crown of beauty. A royal diadem.
The Lord delights in you. Hear that. He delights in you.
He looks at you, and He loves you. He forgives you. He restores you. He breathes new life into you.
You are His light. You are His precious. You are His jewel of great worth.
This is not love, that we love God. This is love, that God love us.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? Your failures? Your mistakes? Your faults? Your weakness? Your trials?
What does God see? His child. That He loves and adores.
He loves you. Always has. Always will. You are loved. Today. No matter what. You are loved.
Live in that knowledge today. See yourself as God sees you, as one that He loves.
Today, remember how He sees you. You are His delight.
Live secure in that knowledge. No matter what.
