The Mirror Check

Written by on February 17, 2019

A mirror is a surface or object that forms an image by reflection. By standing in front of a mirror, you can be able to see your exact reflection.

Mirrors have varying reflecting surfaces. Sometimes the surface may be convex (bulging outward) or concave (bulging inward). The image you see of yourself reflected from such surfaces is distorted.

The image you believe in and see yourself today is as a result of the kind of mirror you’ve been looking at. Some people see themselves as nothing. It is not because they are nothing, but they are looking at the wrong mirror.

Ponder on this. What image are you seeing of yourself right now?

Secondly, what mirror are you using?

Gideon saw himself as the least and so when the Lord showed him his true reflection by telling him he is a mighty warrior, Gideon said,

“Me, my master? How and with what could I ever save Israel? Look at me. My clan’s the weakest in Manasseh and I’m the runt of the litter.” [Judges 6:15 MSG]

Do you see that? Looking at the wrong mirror will cause you to deny your true image and take up a distorted one.

The word of God reveals our true image. See yourself exactly how God sees you. God sees you as great, extraordinary and as a victor. Behold this truth! It’s who you are. Do not let your current situation blur your view of who you really are.

You are beyond special and you matter in this world. Never forget that.
