How does God see you?
First we have to answer a few more questions.
Are you His?
Or do you still belong to the kingdom of darkness?
There is only two kingdoms. God’s Kingdom and Satan’s kingdom (the world’s).
So if you aren’t His, He sees you as the prodigal son. The one He loves with all His heart and He longs for you to come home to Him. He’s not mad at you. He doesn’t hate you. You don’t disgust Him, no matter what anyone else may say. He loves you. But, until you give yourself to Him, you are not His child. He won’t forcibly take you into His family. In fact, He has no legal right to treat you like a son. Like the prodigal son of the Bible, the choice is yours.
Now, if you have surrendered your heart to Him, He sees you as His very own child. Born of heaven, sitting there with Jesus. God sees you as sinless, righteous and holy. Just like Jesus. How can that be? Because Jesus took your place. He paid the price you couldn’t pay. Once and for all. The Father sees you as His “beloved”, “the apple of His eye.” He sees you as an “heir and a joint heir with Christ.” The Father sees you as the “Bride of Christ.” He chose you to marry His Son. He doesn’t remember who you were before He adopted you into His family. He chose to throw your sins into the sea of forgetfulness. The accuser can’t accuse you anymore, not to God anyway. “But I still make mistakes, I sin,” you say. Of course, we aren’t perfected yet. Don’t make a big deal out of it. Repent and move on. Repentance simply put, is changing your thoughts, and turning to God. Build a strong relationship with God and you will find those mistakes come fewer and farther between. Find out who He is, and how He sees you.
Now, the important question is:
“How do I see myself?”
