See Yourself With HIS Eyes

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4) 
Whatever you’re facing in life, or whatever is coming in your future, God has already given you the faith for it. It may not look like it, and you may not feel like you have what it takes to overcome, but faith in God isn’t based on our circumstances or how we feel. 
The enemy would like for you to believe that you don’t have a chance in life, that you’re too weak, too poor, too whatever. But God has a different view of you. God sees you through the eyes of love. He sees not what you can be, but what He has invested in you, not what you or others may see. 
Seeing yourself the way God sees you leads to a life of overwhelming victory. 
But it takes faith. You can’t just hear that God loves you and sees you as His child, you have to believe it. It takes faith to move forward and overcome the challenges of life. And faith does you no good if you don’t know how to release it. You have to release your faith in order for it to work. 
We release faith through our words, actions and, of course, through prayer. It’s up to us to act. 
1 John 4:4 is a scripture we quote a lot, and almost anytime I say this verse in a church or meeting, everybody claps and cheers. But how many people really believe that “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world?” 
The truth is, the One in you is greater and He loves you. So stretch your faith today and see yourself the way God sees you. It doesn’t matter what the enemy wants you to see or how things might look. Our faith overcomes through the One who lives in us! 
Dear Lord, When feelings of inferiority, insecurity and self doubt creep into my heart, help me to see myself the way you do. Amen. 
I pray this devotion blessed you as much as it has blessed me. So often we can become overwhelmed by life and the things we face but if we would just stop for a moment and see ourselves the way God sees us, as today’s devotion encourages, we would quickly realize in ALL these things we are more than a conqueror through Him who loves us. See yourself with HIS eyes. 
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
