Have you ever wondered how God sees us?

Do you ever wish you had x-ray vision? Maybe you think it would be great to be able to read another person’s mind. Those skills might sound fun but do we want others to know what is going on inside our heads and hearts? I don’t want that.

There is someone who has that x-ray vision and knows what we are thinking and even more why we are thinking that. That is God.  He is so mighty.

He is omnipresent meaning he is everywhere at the same time, omnipotent meaning he is all-powerful, and omniscience meaning God is all-knowing. 

So how does God see us? 

Bible verses how God sees us included!

As one who has believed in Christ, accepted that he is the only way to being right with God and being able to have a relationship with God. This is how God sees you. 

1. Forgiven

As his child, he sees you as forgiven. You are no longer unrighteous but righteous. Your sins have been forgiven and even more forgotten.

Psalm 103 speaks all about how God forgives us, “who forgives all your iniquity,” verse 3 and 12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” You are forgiven of all your sins. 

2. His child 

In Ephesians 1:4 God says that he chose us before the creation of the world. He chose us to be his child. As a child of my parents, I can ask them for things or to do something that an acquaintance is unable to ask.

The same is true with God as our father. We can ask for things because he is our father. He calls us sons and daughters. (Ephesians 1:5)

Parents often leave an inheritance for their children. God has given us an inheritance. It is not a cash gift but a valuable eternity with God.

God has given the Holy Spirit as a guarantor of that inheritance. We are God’s children. 

3. Part of the body of Christ

The body has many parts and each part has a role to play in the body’s function. The same is true with the body of Christ. Each believer is a part of the body of Christ.

We have a role to do to keep the body healthy. We are not individual Christians living in our little bubble. No, we are part of God’s family. God sees us as part of the church worldwide. 

4. His workmanship

Have you ever created something that you are proud of? For me, it is often a quilt that I piece together. I love how it came together with the colors, the design, all working together to make something wonderful.

I want others to enjoy what I have made as well. I will often post a photo of that creation for others to enjoy as well.

Do you know that God created you? He brought every bit of you together even the inside parts. God tells Jeremiah that he formed him in his mother’s womb. (Jeremiah 1:5

I make my quilts to be enjoyed and used. I wrap myself up in a quilt on a cold evening. I give my quilts to friends so they can enjoy them.

They are made with a purpose. So too, God created us with a purpose. We are created for good works (Ephesians 2:10). Are you living as God’s workmanship?

5. Our heart

God sees our hearts. The heart is our inner being where our words, actions, and motives come from. He knows all that is happening with us in.

He knows more about us than we know about ourselves. While he knows all that he still loves us. Rejoice to know that God knows us and loves us.

That is how God sees you. You are precious to him as his child. Rejoicing knows how God sees you.

But if you do not know Christ as your savior, God sees you different.

6. He sees your sin and unbelief.

He sees all the wrong and bad that you have done. No matter how good you are or the good things that you do that is not enough to take away your sin.

Your sin is separating you from God but the story doesn’t end with separation. God made a way for us to be restored to him. 

7.  God sees your need for forgiveness.

You need to confess your sins and recognize that Christ died and rose for you. Your sins and mine nailed him to the cross where Christ the perfect sacrifice died for us. You can be forgiven. 

If you have not asked God for forgiveness and recognize what Jesus did by dying on the cross, I encourage you to read Mark’s gospel it is a short gospel and begins to show you what Jesus did for us.

Get in touch with us here at Pray with Confidence and ask your questions, we would love to point to you to Jesus so that you will be seen as forgiven, and a child of God. 

God sees us and most of all he loves us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

  1. Very encouraging post about how God sees us. I like that you put in that he sees our sin and unbelief as well as us as forgiven. Often times we have trouble accepting both sides of that equation.

  2. When reading this post, the point that struck me most was – ‘His workmanship’. God always creates masterpieces and When we allow Him to work in our lives He will always bring beauty out of brokenness. I have witnessed that in my own story and so we thank God for inspiring Beth with this powerful post to encourage us as we run the race!!! Love and prayers to Beth’s family.
