In the previous episode, What Happens When You Look Into A Mirror?, we saw that the word of God is likened to a mirror in the book of James. There I pointed out that because God is His Word, He is the mirror. Here’s a verse of Scripture that makes that important connection:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
The word of God is God Himself. And if the word of God is God Himself, and the word of God is likened to a mirror — according to James 1:23-25 — then God is likened to a mirror. This is very critical to understanding who you are and what you are here to do.
Every time you stand in front of the mirror what do you see? You see yourself, your reflection. Move away and somebody else comes in, the person will see himself. Move that person away, and another comes, she will see herself. It’s the same mirror, but each time each individual stands in front of it, they see themselves. Keep doing it for the trillionth individual, each of them will see themselves.
Now, that’s the way God is: Whenever you behold God, you behold yourself. That is, whenever you have a revelation of God, you experience self-discovery! Because each time you behold God, like in a mirror, you see yourself. You behold your true nature.
Your true self is revealed in the revelation of God that you have. Whenever you really want to know how great you are, look at God. The revelation of God that you have is your true identity, it’s who you are.
Each one of us is a unique expression of a multidimensional God in time and space. And every time you come before God, that dimension of Him that is expressed through you is made known to you. As you walk in the consciousness of your distinctiveness, you become more empowered to fulfill your destiny.
This is why it’s important that we come into the presence of God for ourselves so that nobody will describe you for you. Just as your reflection in the mirror only appears when you stand in front of the mirror, only you can discover your true identity in God.
