James 1:22-25 states, “22 And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don’t obey, you are only fooling yourself. 23 For if you just listen and don’t obey, it is like looking at your face in the mirror but doing nothing to improve your appearance. 24 You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. 25 But if you keep looking steadily into God’s perfect law – the law that sets you free – and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.”
It is real is easy to hear the word of God, but not actually follow the truth. Sin wants to pull us away from God everyday. Sin wants us to say I have better things for you, but all sin ever does is hurt, kill, steal, and destroy. It makes you look in the mirror, and gives you the assumption that everything is perfect, but really on the inside you are hurting.
God works way different. God wants to fix the inside, so when you look into the mirror you see a reflection of a beautiful person. A person that was created with a purpose, plan, and destiny. God wants you to look into the mirror and see a person who is living and following Him in the way they were created too.
A Prayer to Pray:
Father, I thank you for showing me this scripture and letting your word be the truth. Sometimes I fall short of the truth, and I need your help to develop me into your image. Sometimes my ears are only open to listen, and my heart is not open to change. I’m sorry for my heart at times. I ask you Lord that you would make a break through, and I would be obedient to your word and your truth. Father, when I look into the mirror I would see the image of your face in me, and when I walk away from the mirror people would see the light that is within me. I want to be forever covered by your grace, so father come and cover me. I am yours my king, and I know your truth sets me free. I come as an imperfect person to be molded into your image. God change me. I am yours. In Jesus name, Amen. I love you papa God.
