Never noticed before that the Psalmist is praising God as HE LOOKS AT HIMSELF!
Most often when we look at ourselves we see our flaws, failures and struggles, yet when we stop and see what He sees and stop judging ourselves we get a glimpse at the wonder of 'us', fearfully and wonderfully made. A person created perfectly, skillfully knit together by the God of the Universe.
The gospel - the good news - reveals the truth of who we really are and causes us to dance and sing and praise our Creator who made us perfectly and -in Christ- perfected us.
Wow! I get to look at me and see the perfection of HIS work. That draws me even closer to Him, encourages me to be 'real' with Him and blesses me with seeing what He made and sees - a new creation - holy, righteous, pure, a masterpiece, a one of a kind never before seen being... This truth transforms my life. This draws me to live according to the truth - to be who I be. I don't have to try to put on Christ as an outer garment that covers my flaws to be acceptable and work to keep that garment in place covering my flesh that tries to escape its confines. Rather, I get to take off the layers realizing that at my core, my innermost being is His life in mine and it is gorgeous and captivating.
