Seeing Yourself as God sees you

Seeing Yourself as God sees you

Littered through the scriptures are stories of people who felt they weren't qualified to do that which God had called them to do. They felt they weren't capable enough for the assignments God has called them to do. This caused them to wonder why God would consider them when they are not worthy. But the truth of the matter is that God was seeing something in them that they weren't seeing. 
God can never be shortsighted, man can be but God can never be. He sees the inward part of a man. He knows what tomorrow holds for you. Everything you are ever going to be is no secret to Him. So, if He says you can then it means you really can. It would mean He knows you so well, He knows what you are capable of handling and He knows you will do well at it because the ability to do such task is in you. As long as you hold his hands and fix your gaze on him and not the storm, you'd always do more than you think you can. 

Prophet Jeremiah told God that he couldn't speak because he's a a child but God answered him and said, "... Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak." (Jeremiah 1:7).  So the thing you think is a limitation is not actually one. Also, Moses was a stammerer and in his opinion, that was his limitation. On the contrary, in God's sight that was not a limitation. In the same way, David was only a teenager who couldn't even wear the warrior's armour because it was heavy for him. Humanly speaking, that was his limitation but David saw himself through God's magnifying lens. He knew that with or without an armour, he could still conquer Goliath. So, he rode on the strength of God, and brought down Goliath with only a sling and a stone.

When God looks at a man, He sees his limitations as possibilities, He sees his weaknesses as strengths. All of what man sees as impossibilites is seen as possibilities before God. Therefore, if a man would reign supreme and successfully do what God has called him to do, he would have to see himself as God sees him. Such man must shun distractions and believe in the supernatural power of God that quickens one for exploits. For a man to be relevant, He would have to see himself as God sees him.
