How Do You See Yourself?

While attending a conference at a church in Florida, various slides were put up on the overhead screens including the one pictured here. Immediately I thought of Proverbs 28:1, which says “...the righteous are bold as a lion.” Another verse in Proverbs (chapter 23 verse 7) says that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

How do you see yourself? Do you picture yourself as “more than a conqueror” (Romans 8:37) or like a grasshopper as the Israelites did outside the Promised Land? Too many Christians think of themselves as the latter. That’s why they are not receiving all the blessings God has for them.

Putting yourself down is not being humble. It’s actually degrading the wonderful creation God made you to be. I heard one minister define humility as “knowing who you are in Christ…and knowing who you are without Christ.”

Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” So the next time you look in the mirror, see yourself as the Lord sees you...a winner!

“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” - Psalm 139:14
