SEE YOUR TRUE REFLECTION
(Look Into The Mirror of God)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 3:18
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
When you look into a mirror, who do you see? You see your reflection, right? If you don’t see yourself, then you’re not looking into a mirror. The Holy Spirit likens the Word of God to a mirror, and you see the reflection of the glory of God when you look into the Word. As we look into the mirror of God, which is His Word, we’re “transfigured” into the same image of God’s glory that we see in it. The more you look, the more you’re changed.
So, how do you look into the Word? It’s not by leafing through the pages of the Bible as you would with a newspaper; it’s through intense study and meditation. By meditation, the Word takes root in your spirit, and becomes one with your spirit; it creates a picture in your mind: the image of God’s glory. Thus, it matters what you see, when you “look” into the mirror of God. For example, the Word says you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; let that be what you see. See yourself as the justified one; the one who’s been declared “not guilty!”
When you use a physical mirror, you can easily adjust your physical appearance without anybody’s help. In the same way, you can adjust yourself spiritually by looking at the mirror of God’s Word. There’s absolutely nothing you can’t change by using the mirror of God’s Word. Keep talking the Word, regardless of circumstances. The Word in your mouth will grow mightily and prevail over adversities. That’s the glory of the Word.
Dear Father, I thank you for the glory in your Word, which is evident in my life causing me to make progress and win every day. The wisdom of God mantles my heart and is evident in the excellence of my words and actions today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
