How God Sees You!
How God Sees You!
In the midst of the chaos or uncertainty, we sometimes wonder how God sees us. We find ourselves filled with anger, disappointment, worry, questions, depression, and other things when we know or at least think that we should look to God. We wonder if he is angry with us or disappointed when we make mistakes or miss the mark. Joyce Meyer stated, “The wrong view of God will keep you stuck” (You Can Begin Again, Joyce Meyer, pg. 7).
The devil desires for us to remain stuck in the very situations that hinder our progress. He wants us to remain stuck in a place of chaos and uncertainty, so we can never reach the fulfillment of God’s plan for our lives. The enemy lies and tell you that God is disappointed, angry, and waiting to punish you. Consequently, you think it is your job to try and earn God’s love through good deeds. You find yourself trying to live a perfect life in fear of failure, which leads to self-destruction. God understands that we are humans and we are imperfect beings. He loves us because we are his creation not because of our perfection. The Bible says that God is love. Joyce Meyer stated, “He loves you, and He’s waiting to help you in your time of need” (Meyer, pg. 8)

Joyce Meyer stated, “Now, I do believe that we should take steps to improve our lives, but these things never take the place of complete dependence on God” (Meyer, pg. 8)
Are you depending on God?
