That’s YOU!

‘you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.’ (1 Peter 2:9 –

Just look at how you’re described: chosen, royal, holy, and belonging to God. You’ve been picked, adopted into a King’s family and set apart, pure and purpose-driven to show off His amazing grace to those still lonely, on the outside, and in the dark.

When we really begin to see how God sees us, it’s impossible not to share the vision with others.



You’re poetry.

Paul says, ‘we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.’ (Ephesians 2:10 –

The Greek word for masterpiece is ‘poiema’. We get our word ‘poem’ from that.

When God looks at you, He sees a poem He wrote. Let me geek out for just a moment: poetry is the purest form of literature. A poem has perfect structure and rhythm. Every word is carefully chosen and placed, and not a single word is wasted. A poem carries significant meaning and conveys a powerful message.

That’s YOU, in the eyes of your Creator and Father!



Seek God (with all your heart)

If you want to know God, all you have to do is seek Him!
And the great thing about God is that when you seek Him with all your heart, you’ll find Him!

Jeremiah 29:13 (
“You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

2 Chronicles 15:2 (
“He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.”



What He sees.

When Samuel was choosing a king, God reminded him, ‘Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’ (1 Samuel 16:7 –

As you walk along the path God has you on today, pray for divine x-ray vision: to see things the way God sees them. Ask Him to show you how He sees the people around you – the ones you like, and the ones that irritate you.

And ask Him to show you how He sees YOU.
It’ll make your day!
