I thought that I was almost there
Then saw a horizon, seemed far, not near
I went on further and then I knew
I’ve much further to go if I’m to be like you<
See yourself as God sees you. Looking at a mirror is similar to giving the chance to reflect upon yourself, literally and figuratively. Our actions and words reflect ourselves as a whole. What is the “God-like” quality that we are supposed to have? Well, for one, we have to start by acknowledging and respecting God’s authority and presence. The spirit of God is in us, so we must follow Him in the name of the Holy Spirit. Psalms 51:0 states:
“Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”
God is a gracious and forgiving entity. When we reflect on ourselves and realize the many flaws we possess, we have to come forward to God to have Him cleanse and purify us, to purge us from our sins and troubles. Satan will continue to push on and guilt-trip us because he knows that we are very vulnerable and prone to fall under temptation. Therefore, it is important to pause for a bit and take the time to self-reflect. Retreats and personal quiet time with God are great ways to self-reflect and purify ourselves. However, we cannot solely rely on these to fix our internal flaws. Communicating with God on a daily basis is key to checking ourselves.
May God Bless You ~
