Gideon was a small man in an insignificant tribe; however, God saw Gideon as a general leading an army. "I know Gideon will be afraid, but he is going to defeat the Midianites through My plan," God said. "He will be a great general, effective in conflict and battles." With an army of just three hundred, Gideon put the attacking Midianites to flight, and Israel was "in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon" (Judges 8:28). None but God saw Gideon that way. The Lord saw the potential in a little man from a small tribe.
Bad marriages, broken homes, poor decisions- God doesn't see those in you. He didn't even see them when they were going on, except to identify with your suffering and to love you in spite of them.
The Father is always looking upon the Son. When you started looking upon the Son, you began to receive reflections of the Son through the Holy Spirit and His nature within you. Believe that He can do anything for anybody no matter who he is.
I could tell you so many great things God has done in people's lives. He has always made a way. When there is a work of God, nothing can stop it (Acts 5:39).
