Everyday, we are bombarded with “picture-perfect” people on television, the internet, and in magazines. Every where you look, you see models that are absolutely gorgeous to the eye. Flipping channels, you see advertisements for facial creams, liposuction, miracle “diet” pills, and the like. Is it any wonder why people have such a low self-esteem of themselves?
When we compare ourselves to others, we tend to see just our flaws. But what if you could picture yourself in a completely different light? Would it impact your life?
We have been specifically told that we are made a little lower than the angels, and that God crowned us with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:5)
Being God’s child, you are beautiful in His eyes. You are made in God’s own image. (Gen. 1:26) He has given you talents, skills, and wisdom that is unique and all your own. No one else can compare to you. You are a MASTERPIECE! (Ephesians 2:10) You are ROYALTY! (Rev. 1:6)
Instead of seeing all the so-called flaws, see yourself being surrounded in God’s amazing favor and glory. When you walk into a job interview or a business meeting, see yourself surrounded in God’s anointing. See yourself having insight like no other person. See yourself getting the job or the promotion. God already crowned you; you have his incredible favor.
So, the next time you feel yourself getting depressed on the way you look or about something you feel you are lacking; remember that you are wonderfully made in God’s image. Every hair is counted on your head and He ensures you have what you need, when you need it, and you are GORGEOUS in His eyes! His favor, glory, and honor surrounds you every where you go!
Walk tall and shine brightly. For when you walk into the room, the atmosphere changes for the better because God’s glory is upon you!
