True Reflection


AS THE SUMMER COMES TO AN END, SO DO SUMMER FESTIVALS AND CARNIVALS AND THEN AMUSEMENT PARKS FALL NOT TOO FAR BEHIND. I REMEMBER ONCE WHEN I WAS YOUNGER GOING TO THE AMUSEMENT PARK AND I REMEMBER GOING INTO THE FUNNY MIRROR HOUSE. THIS BUILDING HAD ALL TYPES OF MIRRORS THAT WHEN YOU STOOD IN FRONT OF THEM IT WOULD MAKE YOU LOOK ALL KIND OF WAYS. ONE WOULD MAKE YOU LOOK SHORTER THAN YOU ARE. ONE WOULD MAKE YOU LOOK TALLER THAN YOU ARE. ONE WOULD MAKE YOU LOOK LARGER THAN YOU ARE OR SMALLER THAN YOU ARE. ONE MIRROR MAY EVEN REFLECT MULTIPLE REFLECTIONS OF YOU. NO MATTER WHICH MIRROR YOU STOOD IN FRONT OF…THAT MIRROR WOULD NEVER TELL YOU THE TRUTH OF WHAT YOU REALLY LOOKED LIKE. AND THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY? WELL IT WAS SO I THOUGHT BACK THEN. YOU DID LOOK KIND OF FUNNY.

THEN I GROW UP AND AFTER I HAD BEEN THROUGH LIFE A LITTLE BIT MORE I REALIZED THE ENEMY OF MY SOUL HAD TRIED ALL OF MY LIFE TO MAKE ME LOOK LIKE SOMETHING I REALLY WAS NOT. HE THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY THE GAMES HE LIKED TO PLAY BUT I SOON FOUND OUT I NEEDED TO STAY OUT OF HIS FUNNY MIRROR HOUSE. HIS FUNNY MIRROR HOUSE WAS ANYTHING OR ANY PERSON I ENTERTAINED THAT DID NOT SEE ME LIKE GOD SAW ME INCLUDING MYSELF.


SOME PLACES IN LIFE LIKE WORK, SOME CHURCHES UNFORTUNATELY, OR EVEN HOME OR THE HOMES OF LOVED ONES MAY BE FUN MIRROR HOUSES. DO YOU SURROUND YOURSELF AROUND PEOPLE WHO SEE YOU LIKE GOD SEES YOU? OR DO YOU SURROUND YOURSELF AROUND FUNNY MIRROR HOUSE PEOPLE WHO TAKE ADVANTAGE AND WHO SPEAK DOWN TO YOU. PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE YOU FAIL OR WHO IGNORE YOU AS IF YOU DO NOT EXIST. WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO MISHANDLE YOU? TELLING YOU THAT NO ONE LOVES YOU OR THAT YOU ARE UGLY. OR THAT GOD DID NOT CALL YOU TO DO THIS OR THAT. ORRRR…. ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF THESE THINGS?


THERE IS A TRUE REFLECTION. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. IT IS BOLD. IT IS COURAGEOUS AND WONDERFULLY MADE IN HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS. STOP LOOKING AT YOURSELF AS INADEQUATE. YOU ARE MORE THAN ABLE AND QUALIFIED IN GOD’S EYES. AND IF YOU ARE WALKING IN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS HIS WORD SAYS THAT THE RIGHTEOUS ARE BOLD AS A LION.

THE BIBLE IS OUR MIRROR. YES GOD’S WORD IS THE MIRROR IN WHICH WE WILL SEE OUR REFLECTION CORRECTLY. IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR OF GOD’S WORD AND SEE WHO YOU REALLY ARE EVERYDAY. THERE IS NOTHING FUNNY LOOKING ABOUT HIS REFLECTION. YOU WON’T LOOK DISTORTED AT ALL. HIS MIRROR IS ACCURATE AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO LOOK IN IT EVERYDAY. HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND BE WHO HE MADE YOU TO BE. REMIND YOURSELF THROUGH HIS WORD WHO YOU ARE.

AND WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, LET THE ENEMY OF YOUR SOUL KNOW THE GAMES ARE OVER AND THAT YOU ARE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE RIGHT MIRROR NOW. HIS WORD.


PRAYER: FATHER I HONOR YOU TODAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE TOWARDS ME. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TRUE RELECTION THROUGH THE MIRROR OF YOUR WORD OF WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE. I KNOW WHO I AM AND I COME AGAINST EVERY FUNNY MIRROR THAT TRIES TO TELL ME DIFFERENTLY. GIVE ME THE COURAGE TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE FUNNY MIRRORS AND TO STAND IN FRONT OF YOURS EVERYDAY. AMEN.

SCRIPTURES:

1 The wicked flee when no one pursues them, But the righteous are as bold as a lion.

Psalm 139:14 (KJV)

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
