See Yourself From God’s View

We need to see ourselves as holy, blameless, pure, forgiven, lovely, lovable, and worthy.
Janet Keller Richards


There are three points of view from which we can see ourselves. The point of view that we want to see ourselves from is God’s point of view. The other two points of view are a human point of view, like our parents, like our friends, or like our own human point of view. And the third point of view is the accuser’s point of view.

As believers, we can hear slanderous accusations and think they are our thoughts, but they’re actually demonic. We can also have human thoughts about ourselves, like, I don’t think I’m very pretty. That is human point of view. We need to get God’s point of view on how He sees us, not just in the physical, but in the spiritual and in every way personality wise.

Here are some wonderful scriptures. 1 Peter 1:23 says, “We have been born again a second time not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible seed through the word of God, which lives and abides forever.” So the seed of God that birthed us that second time is totally pure, never corruptible. That is who we are. We are born in the Spirit of this not able to be unclean, unholy. Another scripture, Ephesians 1:3-4 says, even before God made the world, He loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and blameless, without fault in His eyes.” That is that incorruptible reality of our being born again. And God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself in Jesus Christ.

That’s the point of view that from which we need to see ourselves. One scripture about the human point of view, 2 Corinthians 5:15-17 says, Jesus died for everyone so that those who receive His new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ who died and was raised for them. So now we have stopped evaluating others or ourselves from a human point of view. We need to see ourselves as holy, blameless, pure, forgiven, lovely, lovable, and worthy. If we don’t, then we need to go to God and perhaps receive help from others to begin to be able to perceive ourselves from God’s point of view.

Let me pray for you. God, for this one who may struggle to see themselves from your perspective, I ask that you would break every dart of the enemy by the blood of the Lamb, that you would separate between what is true and what is false. I ask you, Jesus, to begin to bring the Spirit of truth into those places where the lies exist, and break every bondage over their life, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you.
