God Sees What You Can Become By His Grace

For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.

Hebrews 10:14, NASB

When God was with Moses on Mount Sinai, the Israelites became impatient and asked Aaron, whom Moses had left in-charge, to make them other gods to worship. And without so much as a word of protest, Aaron crafted a calf from the gold that the people had given him, so that they could worship it. While this abomination was happening, God was telling Moses that Aaron would be His very first high priest: “Call for your brother, Aaron, and his sons…Set them apart from the rest of the people of Israel so they may minister to me and be my priests” (Exodus 28:1).

Didn’t God know what was happening down below? Of course He knew, but He did not see Aaron as he was then. He saw what Aaron would become by His grace—His undeserved, unmerited favor. God saw Aaron representing the people before Him as high priest of the nation, and entering the Holy Place on the Day of Atonement.

My friend, as with Aaron, God knows all about your challenges and weaknesses.

If a mistake you’ve made keeps coming back to haunt you, or if you have a weakness that keeps cropping up, don’t focus on it and get frustrated. Look through God’s eyes and see as He sees you by His grace.

To your heavenly Father, you are righteous in Christ, perfected and sanctified for all time by His finished work (2 Corinthians 5:21). Once you realize that this is how your Father sees you, you’ll begin to manifest it in your actions. Then, like Aaron, you will be able to rise above what you are now, and be the champion that God already sees you as through His grace!
