The next time you primp in the mirror, stop for a second and think about this: you are God’s delight. How amazing is that? God says in His word: Rejoicing in His inhabited world, and my delight was with the sons of men. (Prov 8:31)
His delight! You are created to be delightful to God. It’s odd to think that when you look back at yourself in the mirror, but it’s true. He loves you. He dotes on you. He thinks about you constantly. Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. (Ps 40:5)
He is a proud father, because He sees you as His perfect creation. He looks at you through the blood of Christ, so He doesn’t see what you see. You just have to get used to seeing yourself the way He does. You are perfect before Him, with a promise and destiny that He have given you.
Never feel badly about yourself, because God doesn’t feel badly about you. He loves you wildly. You are His adorable child, and it’s ok to feel good about that.
