Through God's Eyes

Seeing ourselves as God sees us is imperative. It enables us to see the divine potential within each and everyone of us help us through the trials that each day presents us. This idea is illustrated in the life of Moses:

"And he saw God face to face, and he talked with him, and the glory of God was upon Moses; therefore Moses could endure his presence. And God spake unto Moses, saying: Behold, I am the Lord God Almighty, and Endless is my name; for I am without beginning of days or end of years; and is not this endless? And, behold, thou art my son; wherefore look, and I will show thee the workmanship of mine hands; but not all, for my works are without end, and also my words, for they never cease... And it came to pass that Moses looked, and beheld the world upon which he was created; and Moses beheld the world and the ends thereof, and all the children of men which are, and which were created; of the same he greatly marveled and wondered.

And the presence of God withdrew from Moses, that his glory was not upon Moses; and Moses was left unto himself. And as he was left unto himself, he fell unto the earth...And it came to pass that Satan came tempting him, saying: Moses, son of man, worship me. And it came to pass that Moses looked upon Satan and said: Who art thou? For behold, I am a son of God, in the similitude of his Only Begotten; and where is thy glory, that I should worship thee?" 1

After Moses had this vision he understood that he was truly a son of God. He saw himself through the eyes of our loving Heavenly Father. We to must realize that we are son's and daughter's of our loving Heavenly Father who wants so dearly for us to achieve our goals in life; especially in returning to him. Moses understood he was a son of God and look at the miracles that followed from that understanding.
What could we do with our lives if we looked at ourselves, through the eyes of our Heavenly Father and trusted in him?

1. Moses 1: 2-4,8-9,12-13
