What Does God Say About Me
After spending most of my life sad and depressed because I worried too much about what the world said about me, I am free of those chains!
I know what God says about me and that is all that matters!
- God says I am the apple of His eye!
- God says I am a masterpiece!
- God says I am royalty!
- God says I am loved!
If you've ever asked yourself, “What does God see when He looks at me?” remember these are the actual words God says about you!
Just open your Bible! It is filled with scripture about who God says you are and just how valuable you are to Him!
When God created you, he made a conscious decision to do a number of things:
- To make you in his image. That means we have many similarities with God. We are capable of deep emotion. We were designed for relationship. We are intelligent. And, we were given the ability to take care of things, that is, we are meant to be stewards.
- To put his hands on you. Up to that point, every created thing had been spoken into being. But not man. No, God knelt down in the dust of the earth and formed us with his hands. And when he was done, he leaned over and gave us his breath. It didn’t have to be that way. But God wanted humanity to know they were special to him.
- He decided to give you stewardship over everything he had created. You were designed for responsibility. You were created on purpose, for a purpose.
That’s still true. So, when you are asking yourself the question – “What Does God Say About Me?” – Always remember that you are special to God.
God Says I Am the Apple of His Eye
If you've ever struggled with thinking that no one cares about your or that you don't matter, God literally said you are the apple of His eye!
For this is what the Lord Almighty says: “After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you-for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:8 NIV
You are the apple of someone’s eye, it means you’re always within their sight. God is protecting and caring for you. You are valuable to God. He cares about what happens to you.
God Says I Am a Masterpiece
The world is constantly telling us that we are not good enough. That we are flawed or broken.
But God says that we are His masterpiece!
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT
The truth is that God doesn't make mistakes and He created each one of us in His own image.
God Says I Am Royalty
The world tells us there is a divide among the classes. The elite and the poor.
But, as children of God, we are born into a royal family that nothing on this earth can even come close to, in comparison!
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NIV
Never think of yourself as lower than anyone because you are a Child of God and royal blood flows through your veins!
God Says I Am Loved
Broken homes and broken relationships can often lead us to feel like we are alone and unloveable.
But that simply isn't true! God literally thinks we are to die for!
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9
When you are feeling unloved or unloveable, always remember what the Cross stands for!
What Does God See When He Looks at Me
Sometimes we look in the mirror and all we can see the labels people have put on us:
We superimpose these words over the image of God. We were made in God’s image and shaped to be like him. Sin marred that image but it is still there. When you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you don’t have to worry what God sees when he looks at you.
When God looks at you he doesn’t see your sins or your past mistakes. He sees his beloved daughter, the child that he has loved since the beginning of time. And God gives you new labels:
Scripture About What God Says About Me
As if all of this wasn't enough to let you know just how amazing and wonderful God thinks you are, here are some more things – backed by scripture – that God says about you:
When the world says I am weak, God says I am strong:
It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. Psalm 18:32 NIV
When the worlds says I am nothing, God says I am am fearfully and wonderfully made!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:4 NIV
When I say I'm unloved/unloveable, God says I am loved beyond measure:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 NIV
When I feel lost and hopeless, God says He has a plan for me:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
When the world rejects me, God says I am His!
But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1 NIV
How to Believe What Gods Says About Me
If you are struggling with truly believing what God says about you over the constant banter of the world, take a pause and talk to God!
Here are four steps to start believing what God says about you:
Give it up to God. The first part of the process requires confession. Tell God how you feel. Let him know that you doubt what his Word says about you. We’re not doing this in rebellion or in an attempt to defy him, we’re doing this because we’re struggling with our feelings.
God made us who we are. He created us to experience the full spectrum of emotions that we do. He can handle our feelings. And the last thing he wants is for us to walk around living a lie.
Remember his faithfulness. There are so many instances in the Bible where God said he would do something and he did it. Read those stories again. Remind yourself that when he says he will do something, he will.
Even if you have been a Christian for only five minutes, I’m sure God has done something for you. Meditate on that. Better yet, write it down so it becomes a record you can refer to in the future.
Write his promises. Go through your Bible and write down at least ten promises you want to claim. Copy the words exactly as they appear. And then, write a prayer that personalizes it for you. Restate it as a declaration.
You are taking God at his Word and you are his child. Every time your mind (or the enemy) tells you something negative, remind him (and yourself) what God says about you.
Pray his promises back to him. Now, this may seem a little silly because God knows everything. He never forgets and he does not need to be reminded. But you see, this is not for him.
This is to remind you that God is faithful and his words are true and will not return to him without producing some fruit. Good fruit. Plenty of fruit.
When we doubt God, we are choosing to believe someone. Sometimes the enemy’s voice sounds like the world’s. Those chattering voices that tell us things that are not quite true. Oh, some of them sound so good to the ear, but they are bitter when they get into your spirit.
When we believe the lies of the enemy, we become who he says we are. It can become confusing because sometimes the enemy’s voice sounds like yours…not those positive affirmations that you tell yourself…no, he’s hidden in the sly voice that mocks you when you try to speak positively to yourself.
Believe What God Says About You!
What God says about us trumps anything and everything the world may say!
Whatever may be happening in your life today, remember what God says about you: You are enough and you are complete in Jesus.
My friend, I get it. You may be asking: “Am I important to God? Allow me to answer that question for you today.
Yes, you are. You’re so important to God he sent his only son to die for you. Though it may be hard to believe what God says about you, I encourage you to cling to his promises even more.
True joy is knowing your identity and grabbing hold of it with both hands. Because if we can hold on—really hold—even when our fingers are blistered and our strength is almost gone…
If we can hold on there is a beautiful reward waiting.
The key to knowing your identity is remembering that God knows us intimately. Your life matters to God. He values you.
