God Gold of the day
Take time to step back and reflect. Come to God, in His Word, in prayer, He will remove the veil from your eyes and allow you to see your true reflection in the mirror.
You want to be able to reflect on these questions; “Where have I been? Where am I currently? And where am I going?”
If we don’t take time to be still and come to God, we will be blinded by the busyness of life and not able to see who we are and who we are becoming risking the chance of one day looking back to not even recognize the person staring back at you in the mirror.
What goal should our vision be set to and focused on when reflecting? Being transformed more into the image of Christ daily! It’s our ultimate goal in life, as we walk through this process of following Christ, the process takes moments of reflection to check ourselves in the mirror to see if we are becoming more like that of Christ. Are you taking time to reflect on the daily?
If not start by stepping back and coming to the Lord, He will remove the blinders from your eyes and show you where you’ve been slack, what lessons are to be learned that He’s placed right in front of you and how to not only learn from those lessons but apply them to your life moving forward as you begin to look more and more like Jesus! That is the goal, to get there, we have to take time to step back, look in the mirror and reflect!
But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.’
2 Corinthians 3:16-18
