You and I did not look so wonderful before God turned our lives around. Many were headed down roads of terror and despair because of foolish things we were doing. Some had gotten to the place where we did not even recognize ourselves when we glanced in the mirror. But when Jesus looked our way and took interest in who we are and started to give us direction in bringing us out of the world—everything changed! When Jesus looks at us, He already sees the finished product. If you are hungry, He sees you fed. If you are sick, He sees you healed. If you are without a friend, he will send you a friend. If you are blind, He sees you with sight. Jesus does not look past us, as some people can do. Jesus looks inside of us to see where we are truly hurting. Then He takes the time to heal us of whatever is ailing us.
I pray that as you look in your mirrors tonight or early in the morning that you see a person of value. That is what God sees. Had he not, He never would have taken time to purchase us with His Son’s blood. You are valuable—do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
Whatever you are facing today, know that Jesus has already been there. He has already looked into your tomorrow and knows your future. He has seen you overcome it all! You are valuable and you are loved.
