What Do You See When You Look in the Mirror?

Every morning when we all wake up… there are certain things that we ALWAYS do by habit, and typically we do those habits in a particular order.

Alarm clock goes off! Jump out of bed! Trip over the shoes you left by your bed! Take a potty break (yes that sounds nasty, but we all do it in the morning)! Brush your teeth! Wash the crust out of your eyes! Take a shower! Eat breakfast! And the list goes on…

The one thing I believe we all do in the morning, is we look at our reflection and image in the mirror. My question to you is this: When you look in the mirror, what do you see? What kind of image is staring back at you from the other side of the glass?

I’m not talking about physical features, such as you have blonde hair or black hair… acne or baby smooth skin… big nose or little nose… I’m talking about something a tad bit deeper than that.

Do you see yourself as someone who deserves to be blessed and have more in life when you look in the mirror… or perhaps you see yourself as someone who deserves to be cursed?

Do you see yourself as being a high achiever… or do you see yourself as a stepping stone to be used by other people as they get ahead in life?

Do you see yourself and walk with your head held up high in positive self-esteem… or is your self-esteem and chin so low to the ground, you could sweep the floor with it?

What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror for the first time every morning?

Let’s look at what God’s Abundant Word says to us today:

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. ” – (Genesis 1:26, 27)

—–

As you can see from the Word above, in the beginning when God created mankind… among the many traits he endowed all of us with… he said (1) I’m creating you in MY image and likeness, (2) I’m creating you to have dominion, and (3) ALL males and females will have these unalienable rights.

Sounds like the U.S. Constitution, huh?

So, if we are created in God’s image and are supposed to look like God… then in order for us to understand ourselves, our feelings, and even our very purpose for even living life… it makes total sense to me… that we must look to see what God looks like.

We must understand what the different qualities of God are and what he does, or doesn’t do… in order to understand ourselves.

Who better for us to turn to when we are trying to understand ourselves, than the one who created us, made us, and sustains us?

Tomorrow, I will discuss these different qualities that God has… and the POWER that we can all have if we walk in the dominion that God has blessed us with.

Until tomorrow, be blessed and highly favored… and walk in God’s Abundance, today!
