God sees beyond what we are able to see. There’s an old saying in recovery about how we view others by their outward appearance. The saying is, “Don’t compare someone else’s outside with your inside.” What this means is, if we have anger, hurt, or resentments, we often tend to project those feelings onto others. In other words, we view others based on what’s going on with us, and not what is real.
Our God does not see us with human eyes. God does not look at us in the context of human emotions. He sees only what is real and true. He doesn’t have issues He hasn’t resolved, causing His vision of us to be skewed. He can see past any shame, guilt, and remorse that we may be carrying. God looks beyond our brokenness, and He sees who He created us to be.
We can’t possibly see ourselves or anyone else the way in which God sees us. We can, however, choose to focus on what is true and real. We must look past our expectations of how we think we and others should be. God examines our hearts and sees what is there. The blood of Christ covers our sins, and God sees us with eyes of Love and Grace.
