Daily Devotions

Seeing Yourself as God Sees You

December 20, 2018

“We…saw giants…we felt like grasshoppers.” Nu 13:33 NLT

Ten of Israel’s twelve spies returned from the Promised Land saying, “We…saw giants …we felt like grasshoppers.” The other two, Joshua and Caleb, saw the same giants but believed that with God’s help they could be conquered: “Let us go up at once and possess it…for we are well able” (v. 30 TLB). That’s the language of a winner! Understand this: God has a plan for your life, but you’ll never fulfill it until you come into agreement with His Word. “But I have so many problems. How could God use someone like me?” you ask. Paul said, “I don’t mean to say that I have already…reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me” (Php 3:12 NLT). When God uses imperfect people, it makes us realize that He alone is our source, our strength, our strategy, and the secret to our success. The Bible says, “The foolish thing [that has its source in] God is wiser than men, and the weak thing [that springs] from God is stronger than men” (1Co 1:25 AMPC). You have a God-ordained destiny, and no excuse for not fulfilling it. You can’t use weakness as a defense, for God says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2Co 12:9). You can’t use your past as an excuse, for God says, “Old things are passed away…all things are become new” (2Co 5:17). How God sees you isn’t the problem; it’s how you see yourself that keeps you from succeeding! So ask God to give you a new understanding of how He sees you—loved, righteous, blessed, and favored!

Thank you so much Pastor Jentezen Franklin for truly inspiring me daily here at my country Kenya. I heard you for the first time in a WhatsApp clip and I fell in love with your anointing. That clip was about fighting for our families. Ever since then I followed you on YouTube and subscribed to your channel and truly you have continued to bless my life. I humbly thank you and may Good Lord continue to bless you. I always use the daily devotions to send to my friends because I want them also to share the blessings. I may not be able to offer any support financially but I honestly pray for your ministry and I believe God will make it international for you and also God's Word to reach many people internationally. Am humbled and may God always bless you and your FreeChapel staff and christians and may the grace of God be sufficient for you and all Kingdom connection.
