The Reflection I See

Your ‘image’ of ‘you’ should not be from what you see in the mirror, but the reflection you see when you look into My Word.

When you ‘see’ yourself in My Word, then you will be pleased to see, and all those around you will know, that you’ve spent time with Me.

You’ll then see, that it’s not about the body or the color of your hair. Nor is it about the clothes that you wear. But the face I see, reflected in there, is the face of My Father–My Father is in there.

Come with Me and I’ll show you that each reflecting light, are lights from My Word shining in the night. But it’s from you that they shine–for all to see; the reflection of you, is their ‘inspection’ of Me. For when they look at you, they are looking to see, just what it is that they need of Me.

“No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, that those who enter may see the light.” Luke 8:16

Some would not know Me–were it not for you.

Some would not love Me, had there not been love from you.

So when you look into the glass, whether deeply or in pass, take time to remember–therein is not broken, but the image of My Father emanating from you.

The Body that was broken–was broken for you.

The Word that was spoken, was spoken for you.

Why then do you criticize, what you see there ‘fore your eyes? Look instead into My Word–for therein are no lies.

Your body is just substance, the substance of the earth. Your spirit is eternal–of the greatest value and worth.

But the beauty of your face–as it shines in all My Grace, is the clear reflection of My Father; for you have your Father’s eyes. And therein lies your beauty–don’t hide it in disguise.

Shine!

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it does not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. And every one who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.” I John 3:1-3

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No man has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so are we in this world.” I John 4:11-17

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who observes his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer that forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing.” James 1:22-25

“My son, keep my words and treasure up my commandments and live, keep my teachings as the apple of your eye; bind them on your fingers, write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 7:1-3

“‘You are the light of the world.’ A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

 

My Glory

The anointing seals those who are Mine and, to the world, you shine!

Gloriously!

For My glory shall be seen over all the earth and My people will be radiant. But My glory is so much more than shine for those who love Me. It is the force that breaks the yoke–the anointing. It is lavished upon all who commune with Me.

  • Time spent together
  • Studying My Word
  • Applying My Word

Obliterates the residue of sin in your life–the old nature; that of the past that clings; old habits that mar and hinder…

Sin no longer has dominion over you–Your past has passed!

Commune with Me and shine in My glory. For if My people, would wear My anointing, the whole world would be aglow

and

All the world would see–

MY GLORY

“The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” Jn. 1:9-14

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life'” Jn. 8:12

“And we all, with unveiled faces, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” II Cor. 3:18

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Is. 10:27 KJV

“–God chose you from the beginning to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Thess. 2:13b-14

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matt. 5:16

“Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.” Ps. 85:9

 

Faith that Shines

Just because you can’t see the sun shining where you are, does that mean its not shining somewhere else in the World? It is the same with faith, you may not see it yet, for “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” You may still be hoping the sun will shine yet you may not see it; the evidence is there, but it just hasn’t come into your spectrum yet.

Believe to receive

Turn your faith into belief, and allow the substance to transform before you–into your realm, to receive. Anxiously looking doesn’t bring it to reality and neither does doubt, but trust without wavering.

Examine your heart daily, to see if there be anything in you that would hinder your ability to receive.

Anger, fear, anxiety, heartache, sadness and shame are precursors to doubt and disable your connection to the Father. True trust casts all other emotions and feelings aside, and stands in readiness to receive the Son and shine!

 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1 KJV

“But if we hope for what we do not see, we hope for it with patience. Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Rom. 8:25-27

“–Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will.” Mk. 11:22-24

“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” Ja. 1:6-8

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.'” Mk. 10:27

“And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Dan. 12:3

“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” Matt. 13:43
