Mirrors are a common feature in most elevators. Because the space is limited, they serve to create the illusion that it’s bigger than it actually is. So when you get into these elevators you find yourself looking at yourself. Most ladies use this elevator time to evaluate their appearances and improve their smile. Many people don’t like the mirror. They hate having to see what they really look like and skip it if possible.
Going up with God takes looking at yourself and accepting what you need to change. Walking with God is going to reveal your sin, limitations and short falls while giving you the grace to change and become what God wants you to become. There are things you need to change before you get to the next level. Otherwise you will be brought down from your next level by those things you refuse to change.
Look into your life and allow God to work in you. Place those issues on the altar of God so He can deal with them. Don’t deny the obvious. The grace of God is sufficient to cause you to become whatever He intended you to be. God’s strength is seen in your weakness by causing you to overcome the very things that had held you captive. Look into the mirror and allow God to work through those flaws, scars and imperfections so He can reveal His perfect work in you.
SCRIPTURE READING: James 1:19-27
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it they will be blessed in what they do.
Dear God, I’m grateful for your Word which is my mirror. Grant me the grace to not only listen to it but rather do what it says. I choose to look at it intently and continue in it not forgetting what i have heard in Jesus’ Name. Amen
