Deuteronomy 32:4 says: “He is the Rock, His works are perfect.” He made me; therefore, I am perfect in His sight just the way I am. I simply have to believe it!
One day whilst walking in the mountains I picked up a piece of rock. The one side was absolutely smooth and fitted into the palm of my hand perfectly. The other side was bumpy and rough.
God sent Jesus to die on the cross and as a result we are brought into His presence, we are holy and blameless as we stand before Him, we are without fault. (Colossians 1:22)
When God looks at us He sees us as righteous.
“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)
It does not matter how I feel. I may feel ugly, bumpy and rough but when God looks at me He sees me through the blood of His son, Jesus Christ, and to Him I am smooth, beautiful and perfect and I fit snugly into the palm of His hand and no-one can snatch me from Him. He does not see the ugliness, it is hidden in the palm of His hand. I am, and you are amazingly beautiful in His eyes because we are His creation. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10)
It does not matter what happens to me, I am safe in His hands.
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:27,28)
