Conntecting the Dots

How Does God View You?

Friends, I have a favor to ask. Next week I will attend a writers conference and plan to pitch a proposal for a new devotional. These devotions are between 140-160 words. They’re short and to the point, written as a sip of cold water for thirsty souls. Today’s devotion below offers you a sample.

Sometimes we’re so busy we can barely breathe. Other times we face circumstances that leave us gasping for air. We have barely enough brain power to focus on matters at hand let alone anything else. In times like this, we’re tempted to forego our time in the Word, but that’s when we need it most. We can’t handle a big gulp, but we can handle a small sip.

After reading today’s devotion, would you mind telling me your thoughts? Do you prefer reading short devotions like this or longer? Would you buy a book with 90 meditations similar to this? Would you consider buying it for a friend? I value your input. You can post directly here or email me with your thoughts. grace@gracefox.com

How Does God View You?

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.  (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)

The way we see ourselves often differs vastly from God’s view of us. We look at our past with its failures. He sees our future filled with promise and hope.

We see our inadequacies. He sees our potential. 

We see our flaws. He sees us as a great work of art.

God poured His best creative energies into making you a unique wonder, and He put His signature on you when He gave you the Holy Spirit. Face the day with confidence and joy knowing you are God’s masterpiece and He’s proud of you.

Action Step: Identify one lie you’ve believed about yourself. Contrast that with God’s truth.

“Father, please bring my thoughts into alignment with Yours. Help me see myself through Your eyes. Amen.”

    Felling a little weary,and yet as I read those words I was able to focus. A lot to think on in so few words. I believe you have a good thing here.

    I liked the post alright. Not my favorite one by any means, but if someone is looking for a bite size morsel rather than a snack then you’ve got something.

      Hi Carla. Thanks for your feedback. You’re right — every person’s needs are different. Some folks like a longer devotion, some prefer short. Depending on our circumstances, that preference might change. It’s good to have something for everyone. Blessings to you!
