Obey God’s message! Don’t fool yourselves by just listening to it. If you hear the message and don’t obey it, you are like people who stare at themselves in a mirror and forget what they look like as soon as they leave. But you must never stop looking at the perfect law that sets you free. God will bless you in everything you do, if you listen and obey, and don’t just hear and forget.
When you listen to the Word of God, you are looking at yourself in God’s mirror. When have you taken a “selfie” with your cell phone camera and not seen an imperfection that needs attention?
When a mother or a father says, in a stern voice, “Did you hear me?” The child is jolted into the realization that what comes next will not be pleasant if he or she does not obey the will of their parents.
Exposing yourself to the Word of God is like looking in God’s mirror of the soul. God will let you see what you need to do to align yourself more perfectly with His Will!
Remember, “God will bless you in everything you do, if you listen and obey, and don’t just hear and forget.”
So today, take a Spiritual Selfie by reading the Bible to see yourself in the eyes of God. Then, obey what the Holy Spirit speaks to your heart. The Bible says when you do that, you will be set free!
“Lord Jesus, thank You for loving us enough to let us see ourselves in Your Word. Help me today to obey everything I see in it. Praise Your Holy Name, now and forever. Amen.”
