Do you agree that the way we view ourselves can be REALLY fragile sometimes? Just one critical comment, a bad mark, a squeaky voice moment, getting dropped or dumped and suddenly you are a useless, hopeless person. On other days we feel we’re great but it’s really just because something went well for once…

Here’s what God sees you as: a masterpiece. Not only has God made you but, if you have faith in Jesus, God has made you alive and ready to do significant things in partnership with him. And God’s view of you doesn’t change – no matter what might come your way this week.

I love the story of Esther in the Old Testament. A stunningly beautiful woman (who knows what that looked like back then?) Esther becomes queen to the powerful king Xerxes. The tale gets dark when the king signs a law that will kill all of Esther’s people. Esther is scared to get involved but her father Mordecai says: ‘surely Esther, you have been placed here for such a time as this?’

How does God view you? I think it’s as someone who is uniquely placed in your family, school, neighbourhood for such a time as this. Do you see yourself as significantly as God does? What could God be calling you to do today?

If God were physically in the room next door, how holy would you feel if you went in? I asked that question everywhere on the WordSpace on Wheels tour around Southern Africa. 99.9 percent said they’d feel between 0 and 5 percent holy.

Do we all have a deep sense of being bad inside and unworthy of God? Some people got it right: If we have faith in Jesus, God sees us as 100% holy. Read that again cos it’s true. Actually it’s Jesus’ holiness in us that God sees. Read Colossians 1v21-23 here: http://bit.ly/170E6QX

That’s hectic! It means we can approach God confident that God won’t reject us. How could you do that today?

‘you created my in-most being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made’ Psalm 139 v 13-14 (Read it here: http://bit.ly/16GPYWg )

On Tuesdays we usually post about #Godsviewofyou. So often we believe lies about ourselves and about how God sees us. We love to take Bible verses that speak truth back into our lives – like this great one in Ps139
