(Behold Yourself In God’s Mirror)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP
“And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”
When you study the Word of God, you’re actually looking into the mirror of God. 2 Corinthians 3:18 tells us that what you see in the mirror of God as you “look” (study the Word), is the glory of God. It means that as you steadfastly behold the glory of God, in the Word of God, you’re metamorphosed, changed into the glory that you see in the Word. This is powerful! This reminds me of a certain young man who had lost his mind, but was brought to one of our meetings. As the Word of God was taught, the anointing came on him and he was restored to his right mind. I called out to him and asked him his name, and he responded intelligently; something he hadn’t been able to do for many years, prior to that time.
The Word of God mirrors you; it shows you your true identity, origin, and heritage in Christ Jesus. When I preach the Gospel and teach others the Word, I hold God’s mirror to them so they can see themselves in the Word, know who they are, as well as their rights and abilities in Christ! The one who came to church thinking he’s unworthy and undeserving of God’s love suddenly sees that he’s loved of God. The one who thought he was a condemned sinner suddenly discovers that he’s been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. That’s the power of God’s Word; not only does it show you who you are, it also imparts to you the ability to live accordingly.
See yourself the way God sees you in His Word. The Word says you’re the righteousness of God—accept it, and live accordingly. Keep studying and listening to the Word of God, for the more you do, the more you’re transfigured to become the glory that you see in the Word.
James 1:23-24 GNB
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the ability to see the glorious realities in your Word, thus, seeing who I am and what you’ve called and made me. I’ve received a brand new life of victory, strength and courage, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
