Do you know that you determine how others see you? You are what you choose to believe you are. Other people will most likely not see you bigger than you see yourself. You choose your height. If you say you are a giant, then that is what you are. If you say you are a dwarf too, that is what you are. It is a simple equation.
This morning, my thoughts were driven to the passage where the spies that Moses sent to check out the promised land gave their reports and ten out twelve of them came back with very distressing news. I was particularly struck by the last verse of that chapter. . .
We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” (Numbers 13:33 NLT)
The Amplified version puts it this way –
There we saw the Nephilim [or giants], the sons of Anak, who come from the giants; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Numbers 13:33 AMP)
When I read the two versions, I was like really? So these men were in their enemies eyes and minds? They must be mind readers and opticians for them to have known what they were thinking or could see.
You better choose to start seeing correctly else people will continue to see you all wrong. Stop cutting yourself down in your thoughts. Stop thinking so little of yourself. Stop letting the devil cheat you by making you believe you are a nobody or that you cannot achieve greatness. God already put the greatness in you, just open your eyes to see it.
There is no point wallowing in self pity. Instead, rise up and stand tall upon the Rock of Ages. I am not saying you should think so highly of yourself. I am saying that you should begin to think highly of Your God.
As you go forth this week and for the rest of your life, I want to admonish you to see yourself through the eyes of God and His mind and not yours. Your mind could play tricks on you and your eyes could be suffering from myopia (shortsightedness ).
God is the one with the big plans for your life- surely bigger than what you could ever think, imagine or visualise.
So, who does God say you are? Go check His Words for them. That’s what you should believe henceforth.
See yourself hid in God and people will see you wrapped in greatness.
Put on your faith goggles friend!
