The Mirror Of God Is The Reflector Of Your True Image
by Ngozi Nwoke
3/16/2020 / Christian Living
Who do you see when you look at the mirror? This is because who you see determines what you think, say or do and what comes to you. However, the mirror you are using is what dictates the reflection you see. And the best mirror to use is the mirror of the word. This post charges you to see yourself as the word of God sees you.
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 - 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV).
So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified - Acts 20:32 (NKJV).
Many Christians are checking themselves with the mirrors of this world, while others are seeing themselves through the eyes of other people. These forms of mirrors will never give you your true image. And until you see your true self you will never be satisfied, peaceful or rested.
Everyone has an impression of you, which most of the time is wrong. Also, you too can wrongly paint a picture of yourself based on opinions of people and circumstances surrounding you. Nevertheless, these opinions can't change what God, your maker, says about you, which is your true image.
You Are Who God Says You Are
People are free to say what they like about you but you should always cross-check it with what God says about you, and if it is different discard their words. This is because, no one knows you better than your maker, and His description of you never changes. Furthermore, the Lord has documented all about you in His word, so discover them.
The Mirror Of The Word
God's word is the authentic mirror that reflects your true image. So, look into the word of God, and you will change into the same image from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). As such, studying the word of the Lord causes you to transform into what He actually made you to be.
The word of God shows you what you look like now and how you can change into your true image. In addition, it builds you up and gives you your inheritance in Christ (Acts 20:32).
No matter how unpleasant, messed up or scattered your life now may be, it doesn't define you nor change what God says about you. Therefore, choose this day to believe the report of the Lord rather than the report of man or the enemy.
Believe And Act On The Word Of God
If the word says you are healed (1 Peter 2:24), then you are healed; if it says you are the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13), then it is so. Therefore, believe on what the word says and act on it and it will profit you (Hebrews 4:2). Also, don't try to reason out how it will work, your part is to believe and it's God's part to make it work.
In-spite of what you may look like today or what people say about you, God's word concerning you remains sure. So, search the word of God and discover who you are and walk in it and God's glory will radiate upon you.
Prayer - Lord open my eyes to see truly who I am in your word.
