As you ought to be or as you are?

“He wants you as you are not how you ought to be”

He sees you as you  ought to be right now, rather then how you actually are. He is not waiting for you to become something.  To him you already are! He knew you before the creation of the world and has been waiting for you… He has never been farther from you then your very heartbeat.  He has written your name on the palm of his hand like high school sweetheart. He knows the numbers of hairs on your head.  He dances over your every triumph.  He holds you and comforts you in your every low point. He does this all without our acknowledgement and notice.

But…

When we see or begin to know how he sees me (us) it changes everything. There is no striving to be something because you already are. he already sees you complete. 2 Corinthians 3:18 relates how you look in a mirror and when you look into the mirror you see his face and He sees yours. His image is yours and yours is His. You are complete “in Him”. A mirror does not see into the past or into the future it only shows what is in front of it at that exact moment.  You are His perfection NOW!

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
