WHO & HOW God sees us
These past couple of weeks we’ve been in a series at The Orchard called MIRRORS. It’s been a pretty powerful series so far. In fact, it’s been a completely unplanned series - meaning I’ve had no idea where I’m going in my teaching until the week of. It’s a bit of a different approach for me, but it’s the direction I’ve sensed God leading me for this series in particular. Ear to the ground….listening….watching….trusting….week by week.
So far, the overarching theme has been based on the idea that we live our lives out of the reality of WHO we believe God is….and HOW we believe He sees us.
Since most of us do not see ourselves how God sees us, we often begin trusting ourselves, others, and all the other mirrors we’re surrounded with in our lives. The result? A deep need for affirmation and approval from everyone we can get it from….and often times, an identity that’s filled with guilt, shame, condemnation, fear, low self-worth, fill in the blank.
This week I’m going to spend some time sharing some of my thoughts from the series here on my blog. I’d love to see this become a conversation. So I invite you to chime in, share your feelings, thoughts, insight, etc…
To help get us started, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this question:
How does our perception of WHO GOD IS…and HOW WE BELIEVE HE SEES US, impact our lives?
Do you believe it does? Why? Why not?
I’d love to hear from you!
