If I am never given an opportunity to speak again, if I am stricken and never able to do another righteous act, if I never lose another pound, if I stumble and am weakened, if I am late, if I let my husband and children down, if I fail to encourage a friend, if that ring in the toilette doesn’t disappear before the day is up, if that wrinkle turns into two, …the list is endless. Help me Lord to see me for who I am in you.
A dose of 2nd Corinthians and Romans 8 tells me, that today, because I know who Jesus is to me, I am looking into the mirror, standing in His grace and righteousness. Today I am looking into that mirror unashamed, uncondemned by the old law, unafraid, unveiled and free, without self-loathing , face to face with my Savior who is changing me from glory to glory. Today I know that I am being perfected for Him and Him alone. He loves me.Lord seal this image in my mind through your Word so that I never move from this in Jesus’ name.
If you are in a battle of the mind and unable to see yourself as God sees you, then I am praying for you today. I pray the barriers that are keeping you from seeing yourself and others through the eyes of Christ are shattered and His love pour over you like waves of grace. I pray that you begin today to feel and understand and know the depth of His love. I pray that you will know His fullness and understand you are being made perfect by the Spirit of Christ in this life for your eternal life with Him to come. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
