What Does God Think Of Me?
You are an immortal spirit currently residing in a mortal container called a body. You will live forever, casting off your body. You were made in the very image of God, crafted by Father, Son and Spirit. They said “Let US make man in OUR image” (Genesis 1:26).
Whatever the world may think of you, or whatever you may think of you, this fact remains. You are one of a kind. You are not an animal. You are not confined to the lifespan of this earth. You have extraordinary value.
I think it is far too easy to assess our value based on externals. Why do we give more credence to the opinions of mankind than the truth from God?
There are several places in the Bible that mention the intents and purposes of God, and these shed light on the question “What does God think of me?”
First, He thinks that making a way of salvation for you is worth dying for. I John 4:10 says “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
Second, His desire is that you will be saved and spend eternity in heaven. See the prayer Jesus offered in John 17, and also consider II Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
Third, God knows you as one of a kind and as a person with purpose. Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” We are specially crafted works. Each of us is as precious and as individual as a piece of fine art. And we all have things that we can do in this world that honor God and help others.
So what does God think of you? He thinks you are precious, beloved, individual and worth making a path to heaven for. Even if your self-confidence gets shaken, you can always rely on these Bible given truths to return you to confidence in God, and the comfort of how He thinks of you.
