When Jesus looks into us, He sees it all—our potential, our flaws, the whole nine yards. A few years after He first met Peter, Jesus told His disciples they would all abandon Him. Peter said, “I won’t ever abandon you. I will stay with you through thick and thin, dead, or alive.” Jesus then informed Peter that he would deny even knowing his Lord repeatedly that very night. Jesus isn’t blind to the negative things in us. He’s bifocal. He sees us both as we are and as we could be.
God designed us with plentiful potential Aliveness. The best thing we can do to increase our Aliveness is to get close to the one who sees who we are and knows who we are meant to be. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made…when I was woven together… Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:15-16). God sees you through the lens of your potential in Christ.
Life Action: Ask God to tell you one thing He sees in you today. Listen all day for His answer.
