Don’t Look At Yourself, Look At Jesus

I know this is very difficult from how I often portray myself, and then how the Lord sees me. If you struggle with this, don’t be afraid, you are not alone, trust me.

There are three reasons why in my personal life I believe I think of myself the way I do,

  • As a boy, I wasn’t popular at all in school, and I assume I am less than others
  • I have never had many friends, and I am used to always having to start conversations for others to talk to me. If you want to really encourage someone, talk to them without them talking to you first, it will really make their day better.
  • As every other believer, God has things here He wants me to do, so obviously satan would want me to be discouraged in life to prevent God to work through me.

However, Jesus sees us differently once we are saved and forever His. Read this:

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Hebrews 10:14 (KJV)

14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (KJV)

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

In Jesus eyes we are a new creature, the old has passed away. We are perfect in His sight, His precious blood on that mercy seat in heaven is covering all of our sins. All of it! We are valuable to Him, what He did to save us is truly amazing, something none of us deserve!

Ephesians 1:13-14 (KJV)

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Romans 8:16-18 (KJV)

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Bless You! Jesus loves you and I pray that this would encourage someone today!
