“A Look In The Mirror”
Mirrors are used to allow us to see how we look on the outside. Our face, our hair are often the objects of our gaze. The mirror can only see a reflection of what is standing in front of it. God is asking us this week to hold a spiritual mirror up to our souls. What will it show? What will we see?
As we embark upon this most serious and sacred of all journeys, I pray that you will take every advantage of this opportunity. God loves us so much that He has called this time for us to “Examine” ourselves. If this is done properly, it will not be an easy task. One definition of the word examine is “to try, make trial of, test; for the purpose of ascertaining his quality”…Ascertaining his QUALITY! Do you KNOW the quality of your character?
We must look at ourselves in order to be able to CORRECT ourselves! If our quality is not pure, we must eliminate every impurity that is in us. Searching the scriptures will give us the answers and instruct us how to deal with what we find.
ACTIVITY: Today we will begin by listing things that we are: “I am disorderly” God Is very orderly. (Gen.1:1-31) In your journal make an “I am” list then make a coordinating “God Is” list. Be sure to include the scripture(s) for the “God” side. Also, you do not have to complete both sides together. Thoughtful consideration should be given on BOTH sides.
PRAYER: Father it is in the name of Jesus that I come to you firstly thanking you for THIS day and for THIS time of consecration. I ask that you help me to look deeply at myself, and see me as you see me. Please God show me who and what I really am and then give me all that I need to correct it. I love you and need you….in Jesus name….Amen
