Envision Your Life from God’s Perspective
By Richard Cox
“…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” John 10:10 (AMP)
Often we are so busy doing this and that for other people in our lives that we sometimes lose focus of achieving our own personal goals and dreams. God wants to fulfill His plan in our lives but we must first begin to see ourselves the way God sees us – growing and prosperous.
How do you view yourself as a child of God? Do you reflect God’s image in your everyday lifestyle? If so, you’ll experience a perception of His fulfillment, peace and power in your life. You will begin to feel empowered by the way God sees you excelling and living a life of victory through Him.
As your personal relationship deepens with Christ, His favor and blessings will overflow. Some will be surprised by how God has taken the limits off of their own limited perspective of you. Some will be surprised by the blessings that were obtained through your faith in God. They probably felt that you could only live in a certain type of neighborhood, only marry a certain type of person, or only work a certain type of job. It is work to constantly deprogram yourself from people’s impressions and their limited perspective of you. As you begin to see yourself through God’s eyes (found in His Word) your possibilities are endless.
One effective key to learn God’s perspective of you is to study your rights as a child of God which is found throughout His Word. For example, you are blessed with every spiritual blessing. Ephesians 1:3 (AMP) says, “may blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!” Be encouraged as a Believer because you’re not the same person since Christ has entered your life. You have been given a new perspective about yourself and your lifestyle.
