Look At Me!

Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.


      When God looks at you and says something about you, then you had better take notice and respond in humble agreement.
      Gideon felt weak and minimal, while God called him a mighty man. Jacob saw himself running away in cowardice fear, while God saw him as the founder of the tribes of Israel. Esther saw herself as an orphan in captivity, while God saw her as the queen who would deliver her people from annihilation. Jephthah saw himself as born illegitimate. Jdg. 11:2b Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman. God saw Jephthah as a judge and deliverer of His people.
      Nothing has changed when it comes to God looking at you from His point of view. My publisher, Clay, sees himself as a small-scale publisher trying to work through the maze of life. While God sees Clay as an authentic spokesman for Christian literature and someone with a heart to get God’s word out to all people. My friend, Jami Rogers, sees herself battling just to make it through the day. While God sees Jami as an untamed warrior bringing down the strongholds of the enemy, and fighting anyone, at any time from any side when it comes to doing what is right! Many of my friends see themselves one way, but God sees them for who they are in Christ.
      I once saw myself as an illiterate man just getting by, while God saw me as a blessed layman in His church, and now an author. This is a very serial and overwhelming feeling. But nonetheless, in the same way, that the above-mentioned people had to move forward with humility, I had to respond by faith to God’s view of who He said I am. Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 
      The beauty of our relationship with our Heavenly Father, is that we can go to God and say to Him, with respect, “Abba, look at me. Who do you see?” Once the Lord says who and what He sees in your heart and soul, you can do anything with His grace that runs throughout your entire being. It does not matter if what God sees is a need for correction, building up, or development of character. With enthusiasm, you will respond to God’s goodness. God is always watching us. Therefore, He knows who we really are. Prov. 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
      God did many miracles for all the people of faith who are listed in chapter eleven of Hebrews. Why then, would it be hard for God to work a miracle for you today? There is no way that uncontrolled rioting and a worldwide pandemic can stop the blessing of the Lord from reaching your life and fulfilling all that God has created you to be. No war, drought, famine, or hubristic tyrant who is in charge has ever stopped God’s blessing in the past and will not stop it now. When God looks at you, there is nothing in the universe that can hinder the result of His look of love and favour toward you. Rom. 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
     The world has gone mad trying to get anyone to look at them and give them a sense of identity. We who are in Christ have been looked upon and given an eternal identity that no man can take from us. Rev. 2:17b I will also give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it. We are living in this favour right now. With a full heart, we can say to anyone, “Look at me! Look at what the Lord has done!” 
      Saints, like any other time in history, world problems are continually happening. The only difference we have right now is a pandemic and social unrest have been thrown in with everything else. This worldwide mayhem has put us in a position for a miracle. Therefore, let us all come to God the Father and say, “Abba, look at me. Who and what do you see?” God sees His Son and the finished work of the cross active in your life. We are the Lord’s chosen. Therefore, let us agree with what we have been chosen for. 1 Pet. 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
