Our Vision – A Lens of His Love

2 05 2013

Loving-favor and loving-kindness and peace are ours as we live in truth and love. These come from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Son of the Father. II John 2:3  NLV   

IMG_0741When we look in the mirror what do we see? Upon our first glance, do we see a blessed child of the King or is our first response to begin to make a mental list of what needs to be fixed. I believe one of the best practices of creating a vision for ourselves and the road ahead is to look through God’s lenses as who we are as His children. I want to see myself as God sees me. Not what the world sees, not my physical imperfections but to have a consistent view of what God sees when He sees me. His view is through the lens of hope and love. Our Heavenly Father is generous with us unending mercy and forgiveness, when He looks upon His children. When we strive to see what He sees in us, it gives us perfect vantage point for our growth and our confidence in who we are and where we are going. We can look to His Word, His Holy Spirit to help us to see a clear picture of His view. Whoever and wherever we may find ourselves, He sees us in love.

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster; plans to give you a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11
