The God Who Sees Me

As a regular attender of my church and an active participant in ministry as a function of my calling, I sometimes neglect to remember that God sees me from a perspective I not only lack: I often intentionally avoid it! You see, God sees me as I really am. Others see me as I present myself, whether I behave well or have an outburst of temper or whatever I do. God sees me without anything hidden from His eyes!
I think of the passage in the third chapter of Revelation when God’s perspective of the Laodicean church is revealed to be in stark contrast to the perception the church has of itself. He says, “For you say, “I’m rich; I have become wealthy and need nothing,’ and you don’t realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” The contrast between the two views is dramatic. Perhaps you and I do well to learn from the passage that God sees us as we are.
When I reflect on this matter, I am reminded of David’s invitation to God at the end of Psalm 139. He writes “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; and lead me in the everlasting way.” My prayer is that God will do that for me: examine me from His perspective and then lead me by His grace and mercy in the everlasting way. When I look at my reflection now, I want to remember that God sees me the way I really am. For it is then that I know I have no hope apart from His mercy and grace in Christ Jesus!
