what do people see?

Picture David when he was a shepherd boy. Many who knew him in his pre- Goliath days would very likely have seen just an ordinary youth — one who lived at home with his parents and siblings, enjoyed the outdoors and loved music. But where others saw a typical teenager, God saw a king in young David. He saw David’s name being uttered in honor forever for even the Lord Jesus is called the Son of David! 

Picture Moses after he had settled down comfortably in the desert with a beautiful wife, lovely children and good in-laws. He might have seen himself happily retiring in the near future. But God had bigger plans for him. God had big dreams for him. God saw the Red Sea opening up before him and an entire Egyptian army being wiped out in his presence. God saw in Moses the deliverer of His people. 

Now, step back a little less far in time with me. See a little boy standing alone during playtime. Nobody wants him on their team because he is scrawny and seen as a weakling. As he grows into his teens, he suffers from an inferiority complex. He stammers and stutters so much that all his classmates laugh at him. 

But today, he is the senior pastor of New Creation Church. Each week, he stands in front of a crowd of more than 24,000 people to preach. And he receives invitations to speak in churches and pastors’ conferences worldwide. In those early years, there was no way I could have ever conceived in my mind what God saw in me and the dreams that He had for me. 

Beloved, God does not see as man sees. God saw in fearful Gideon a mighty man of valor and called him so even when he was hiding from his enemies in fear. God saw in young David a king and anointed him as one. God saw in meek Moses a deliverer and drew him out from obscurity. 

Today, God looks beyond what man sees and says about you, and He has dreams for you that are bigger than you can imagine!

I loved reading today's devotional on youversion. It's nice to know that where people  see a crazy girl, or a stupid boy, God sees His Child or a lovable person. God's love for us is indescribable....
Where people see a handsome guy and a pretty girl, God sees past the fa├žade and knows what we are like...on the inside....

What's your heart like?

Just encouraging us to trust HIM everyday and to love being HIS own :)
