When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see? Do you see that brilliant, bright, amazing person that others could see in you? Do you see someone who is loved and adored by many? Do you see that person that once you set your mind to it, can do anything you want? Let’s be honest, most of us, at times don’t automatically wake up in the morning thinking “I AM JUST OH SO AWESOME!” However we must remember this the next time we look in the mirror, how you view yourself, reflects how others see you. We should be able to proclaim how fearsome we really are every time we look in the mirror. If what you see when you look in the mirror is a shy unimportant, unwanted person that’s who you will allow others to see. They view you with YOUR internal eyes. You may actually look amazing, however if your minds and heart don’t see that others won’t either. But what you may not know is that inside that shy or unwanted person is an amazing and wonderful human being. Someone who adores life, and can put a smile on anyone’s face just by looking their way.
So how would I even begin to do this (go from feeling unworthy to feeling phenomenal)? I’m glad you asked. You see it’s actually quite simple. First you begin by recognizing who you are in Christ. that’s right once you do that you begin to grasp knowledge that there is potential inside of you. You comprehend that there is Power inside of you waiting to be released. And that Power can only be released by the power of the Holy Spirit. Did you know that The Creator in heaven made you, and HE made you in HIS image (read the book of Genesis). So that means you are already AMAZING!! Wow, how awesome is that? So my friends today (and every day) I challenge you that next time you are standing in front of the mirror, while you’re getting ready, you tell yourself the following:
I AM God’s!!
I AM THE HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL (Deut 28:13)
I AM LOVED ETERNALLY (1 Peter 1:5)/
I AM CHOSEN (Ephesians 1:4)
I AM HIS BELOVED (Romans 1:7/ 2 Thess 2:13)
I AM HIS PRECIOUS JEWEL (Malachi 3:17)
I AM HIS Friend (James 2:23)
I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR (Romans 8:37)
I AM A VICTOR (1 John 5:4)
I AM SHELTERED UNDER HIS WING (Psalms 91:4)
I AM HIDDEN IN A SECRET PLACE OF THE ALMIGHTY (Almighty Ps 91:1)
Don’t just say it, believe it with all your heart and soul. And the next time someone takes a look in your direction they will not only see a new radiance and joy but they will know it’s Amazing!
Let’s pray: Lord, we have nothing to give you but our hearts. Yet you ask nothing of us. Plenty of times we come to you asking, no demanding, and still you sit back and look at us with a smile, because YOU love us. And Lord YOU always give us our y heart’s desire (so long as it is something we need). YOU have created us and made us what we are. In our eyes we see flaws and may not see what you see, Lord, knowing we’re still a work in progress. But YOU… YOU see us as FLAWLESS!! Not a smudge on us, nothing missing, everything in its place… PERFECT! You made us beautiful, wise, and so amazing because YOU live in us. we are oh so happy because we are YOURS, and YOU are OURS! Thank you Lord for believing in us and showing us just how wonderful we are. Amen!
Always be thankful.
