How Do Your See Yourself?

 

 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17


Have you ever met someone who has a poor self-image, who seems to exude an air of inferiority? Psalm 109:18 describes a man who “wears cursing as a garment.” Negative self-talk and a sense of insecurity are curses that are as easily perceived as a man’s clothing.

On the other hand, when you meet a person who is confident and self-assured, it’s easy to recognize their poise. Why? Because a confident person exudes confidence.

How do you see yourself? As a champion who wins nearly every fight? Or as a loser—someone who struggles through life, never conquering a single problem? But why should you pay attention to how you see yourself?

It is simply a fact that you will inevitably project what you feel about yourself to others. So the question of how you see yourself is very important. Seeing yourself as God sees you is critical to how you represent Him and your effectiveness in carrying out His purposes. So what does the Word of God have to say about us in this regard?

In Romans 8:37, the apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit declares …we are more than conquerors…”

The phrase we are more than conquerors” is translated from the Greek hupernikao. Huper means over, above, and beyond. It depicts something that is way beyond measure. It carries the idea of superiority—something that is utmost, paramount, foremost, first-rate, first-class, and top-notch; greater, higher, and better than; superior to; preeminent, dominant, and incomparable; more than a match for; unsurpassed, unequaled, and unrivaled by any person or thing.

Paul had a specific idea of the kind of conquerors we are in Jesus Christ, and uses the word huper to dramatize our victory. We are huper-conquerors!

Paul is telling us:

We are greater conquerors, superior conquerors, higher and better conquerors! We are more than a match for any foe! We are utmost conquerors, paramount conquerors, top-notch conquerors, unsurpassed conquerors, unequaled and unrivaled conquerors!

That’s precisely who you are in Jesus Christ! Stop looking at yourself as a struggling loser. Regardless of your past experiences, you must begin to look at yourself through God’s eyes and in the light of Romans 8:37. This verse declares that you are always the winner and never a loser! And when you begin to see yourself the way God sees you, it will change the way others see you too.

Make a choice to resolve right now to see yourself the way the Word of God does—as a walloping and conquering force! You are more than a match for any adversary or foe that can come against you today!

Prayer for Salvation:

God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.

    There are times that I really struggle with seeing myself the way God sees me and then there are times that I think I am the greatest nobody on the planet, you know what I mean? Articles like this give me that boost that I need every day, thank you!

  3. Thank you Olga for the reminder that we need to be seeing ourselves the way God sees us. Thank you!

  4. Awhile back in a grad class the professor asked the class to develop a question for the class video. I don’t recall the class but I do recall my question: How do you SEE yourself? My classmates laughed and joked about my question, but the professor told the class that the question was a great question for everyone to consider. At that moment I really didn’t realize the impact that question had for I was just looking for a good grade. It had to be God the Holy Spirit who gave me the question then and has since shown me myself that He divinely made me to be. Questions throughout my educational journey would baffle me for they were just questions without answers…such as Who am I?…What do I plan to be? Why am I here? What’s important to me? …etc. It never occurred to me that God had all the answers and that He had my life already outlined in His word. Now it took decades to come to the knowledge that His word defines me. I spent years allowing everything but His word define me. Now, I know I am not a duplicate, but an original and divinely made Ps 139. I need not be anyone other than who I am in Christ Jesus. It FREES me to be all that God has made me to be. When I see me from the finished work of Jesus Christ, I am unlimited, whole, complete and valuable. I love me because I am loved by the one who loved me first. I seek not others to define me because I am already defined by the same God the Father that others are defined. A tree is known by the fruit it bears, however, ONLY GOD knows what He has placed in the fruit. We are NOT fruit inspectors, God is! Shalom
