mirroring yourself in the word
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord
2 Corinthians 3:18

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Wednesday 25th August 2021

The term “glass” in the scripture above is the
Greek “katoptrizomai,” and it means to mirror
oneself. The New International Version says, “And we,
who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory,
are being transformed into his likeness with everincreasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is
the Spirit.” It’s talking about the mirror of God, which
is the Word of God.
As you study and meditate on the Word, you’re
mirroring yourself! What you see in the mirror is the
glory of God. Through meditation, the Word takes
root in your spirit and becomes one with your spirit
it creates a picture in your mind: the image of God’s
For example, you may have thought you were
a dirty sinner, but then you looked in the mirror of
God and saw that you’re the righteousness of God in
Christ Jesus you’ve been declared not guilty divinely
acquitted! Blessed be God! This should completely
change your perception and cause you to become
immediately righteousness-conscious, and walk
henceforth in righteousness.
Perhaps you were told you wouldn’t amount
to anything in life you’re a poor, wretched nobody.
But the Word—the mirror of God—shows otherwise.
It shows you belong in a chosen generation, a
royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people—
handpicked by God to display His manifold wisdom
and express the virtues and perfections of divinity (1
Peter 2:9). This is the truth about your personality that
you must accept and endorse. Hallelujah!
Maybe for several nights, Satan has been
oppressing you in your sleep, and you thought you
needed “deliverance.” But you look in the mirror
and see, “Giving thanks unto the Father…Who hath
delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”
(Colossians 1:12-13). Immediately, that truth should
get a hold of your spirit and you begin to exercise
dominion over Satan and the forces of darkness.
There’s so much that happens to, and in your spirit
as you meditate on the Word you’re transformed to
become what you see. Hold on to the picture, the
image of you that’s projected by the Word that’s
the reality you must keep affirming, regardless of


I’m perfected in Christ, and I’m the glory of God I can do all things through Christ and no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. I’m eternally triumphant and can never be disadvantaged. Therefore, I fix my gaze on the Word and accept only the image and reflection of me that it projects. Blessed be God!
