How God Sees Me

God, help me to embrace how you see me, my heart whispers. I felt like He impressed the letter below as a response. It is written as if from Him to you and me and based in the truths of His Word. Soak it in with me, sister.

Laura, I am pouring out My heart so you can remember what comes to my mind as I am constantly thinking of My daughters. Just like it’s hard for you to feel misunderstood, I am a Daddy (Abba) who jealously desires for My daughters to embrace who I say they are.

Daughters, lift up your eyes to Mine and agree with Me.

You are the Apple of My Eye (Psalm 17:8, Zechariah 2:8). I look upon you with an expression of tenderness, grace, and adoration all the time. I love watching you belong to Me. I guard and protect my purposes in your heart and through your life. You are cherished. I treasure your growth in Me and vulnerable gestures toward Me. Because you are precious to Me, I want you to stand firm in your worth and not give away your dignity by trying to gain it from others or your own efforts.

You are My servant who I honor and admire (Isaiah 44:1, Psalm 91:15). I am zealously opposed to all the enemy steals in your life and am fiercely loyal to honor you as My servant and daughter. Because I come to your defense and advocate for you when the enemy accuses and attacks, I want you to resist him by shattering every lie and exercising faith. I do not want you to grow tired of sowing good seeds into people’s lives because a harvest is coming (Galatians 6:9).

You are My Beloved in whom I am deeply pleased (Song of Solomon 6:3, Romans 8:1). My Son’s sacrifice and resurrection conquered the sin barrier between us. I love being in union with you and find you altogether lovely and lovable. Because I lavish my unconditional love upon You, I want you to feel the freedom to admit faults and mistakes while turning from destructive behaviors and attitudes. I want to hold your hand and relish the steps we are taking.

You are My Bride who is dressed in pure flowing white (Ephesians 5:25-27, Revelation 19:7-9). I am preparing you for the day we will meet in the heavenly realm. I am so eager for you to know Me with the veil removed between us. While you live in this broken world where My voice is easily drowned out, I beckon you to come to Me and My Word to receive a fresh cleansing of who I say you are. I urge you to give up striving, demanding, and deliberating. I am holding you close to My heart because you are Mine. My Daughter and My Bride. I love you.                                                                                                                               (**to hear from a dear sister on this topic, read Deb’s Story “Abused to Adored”)

  1. Laura, thank you for this devotion. My daughter and I used this for our shared devotional time tonight. It spoke to both of us. It communicated so well that her identity is in Him, not in the lies and confusion of the broken world. Teenage girls so need to know that. We all do. Thank you.

    • Hi Valerie, it lifts my heart to know you and your daughter enjoyed sweet time together about how God sees us! The teenage years can be tough on identity so I am so glad for your heart to deposit God’s truths as a mother.
