It is often our negative self image that causes us to see ourselves many times not as others see us.
And I might add, not as God sees us.
We see within us the inferior.
The less than.
The I can’t…
God sees within us the superior.
The more than.
The you can because I can…
Have you ever tried to encourage someone and they reply, “How do you see that, when others or even myself can not?”?
I told someone recently who was down on themselves, “Just because others do not recognize it doesn’t mean it isn’t true.”
Christ was so perfect in this approach.
He would see what no one saw.
Even in themselves.
He saw evil becoming good.
The can’t becoming the can.
The less than life becoming the more than life.
Today, pray that God will send someone into your path so that you might both recognize and declare the wonderful gifts in someone else.
