It’s How God Sees Me

I really don’t require man’s approval of me if God approves me… and He does!


What do people think about me?

Are they impressed? Put off? Offended by me in some way? Do they think I’m too heavy, obnoxious or out of shape? Do they look at me with pride or disapproval?

There’s not too much we can do about all that, and we shouldn’t waste much time pondering such questions. But although I can’t help you with that, let me help you understand how God views you.

  • First, you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God Himself (Psalm 139, Ephesians 2:10).
  • God’s had his eye on you for a long time since before creation. (Ephesians 1:4,5)
  • You can’t do anything, nor can anything be done to you to keep God from loving you. (Romans 8:38,39)
  • There is royalty running through your veins. (I Peter 2:9)
  • You are a beacon of life to those around you. (Matthew 5:14)
  • God has chosen to actually live in you (I Corinthians 3:16) and He considers you ‘salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13) as you represent Him.
  • God is so pleased with you that He rejoices over your life and actually gloats over you in song! (Zephaniah 3:17)
  • You have been freed from slavery and given citizenship with the saints of old… it’s your new ‘family tree’ (Ephesians 2:19 and Galatians 4:6,7)
  • God cares deeply and personally for you. (I Peter 5:6,7)
  • God’s eye is always on you and you are never out of his sight (Psalm 33:18)
  • You are destined to be a victor (Romans 8:37)

In conclusion, you don’t live under condemnation (Romans 8:1) – have been given power, love and self-control (I Timothy 1:7) and have grasped the reason why we celebrate the birth of Christ:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,

that whoever believes in him should not perish

but have eternal life.” John 3:16 ESV


Just in time for holiday giving… Fresh Heart For a New Day – Volume 2 is now available through Xulon Press (xulon click on Bookstore and type in Fresh Heart For A New Day. It’s available in paperback or for Nook. Both volumes 1 and 2 are available through Amazon and other booksellers. This is where you can get the Kindle ebook of Volume 2. Two favors to ask: the sale of my books goes into the ministry account for Fresh Heart Ministries so the Xulon purchase gives back 100% of my royalties which is four times what I receive through Amazon. Just sayin’  My second request is that once you have gotten my devotional and like it, please write a short review to help me gain new readers. Thanks for your support and friendship
