What do you believe about how God sees you? What do believe about God’s character? 

Take a minute to slow down and really absorb those questions. 

I’m not asking you to answer them with biblical truth. I’m asking you to answer this with your gut feeling. 

If you’re struggling to figure out the beliefs that you may have, just look at your behaviors and work backward. For example, if you struggle with impatience or bitterness, what might that reveal about your gut belief in God? 

What I Believe About God

Let me share honestly what I sometimes believe about God. I sometimes believe that he is an angry God and that he is disappointed in me. I sometimes believe that I have to earn his love and that if I don’t work hard enough, then he sees me as worthless. Sometimes I believe that I have to have it all together for him to see me or care about me. 

I know that these aren’t true logically, but at times these lies can speak louder than the truth. 

What We Believe About God

What we believe about God will deeply impact our thoughts, behaviors, and responses. 

Let’s bring those beliefs to light so that we can attack them with the truth and embrace who we are in Jesus.

The first step is identifying the false beliefs. The second step is combating those false beliefs with the Truth.

What Do You Believe About How God Sees You?

You can refute the lies you may believe about how God sees you by countering them with biblical truth. Here are several examples.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” – Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV)

TRUTH: You were created with intentionality and purpose. You were divinely created. God sees you as wonderful. 

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” – John 15:16 (ESV)

TRUTH: You are chosen. 

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27 (ESV)

TRUTH: You were made in His image, handcrafted by the God of the universe. 

“I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven for his name’s sake.”- 1 John 2:12

TRUTH: You are forgiven. 

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

TRUTH: You are fervently loved, wanted, and adored. 

“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?” -Psalm 139:7 (ESV)

TRUTH: You are seen and pursued by your Heavenly Father. 

What would change in your life if you could fully embrace these truths? Friend, God loves you more than you could possibly imagine. Go and live in the freedom that comes from being his chosen, loved, and adored child. 

Wife Step: Take time today to identify what false beliefs you believe about God, then meditate on the biblical truths that refute those lies.
