We have all seen it, that dreaded moment when our child squints up their face and says something with our exact mannerisms, tone and delivery to one of their little friends, siblings, or someone at church, but it is not one of the wonderful things we say. Or if you don’t have kids the moment you find yourself repeating words with the same fashion your parents always did, and not ones you wished ever to repeat.
The fact is we mirror and reflect our leaders, be it our parents, our bosses, or even the president. It happens whether we are paying attention or not. What or who are you reflecting?
We are said to be made in the image of God, but do we reflect His glory? What if we were conscious of God as our leader? The Bible says, if we turn to the Lord the veil is taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:16
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV
When we keep our eyes on God we reflect His glory, not our own, not our parents, not our bosses, or worldly leaders, but God Himself. We were made like the trees and mountains to reflect back Gods glory and in the process He transforms us into His image.
That means keeping our eyes on Christ. That means when times are good, eyes on Christ, and when things are bad, eyes on Christ.
Please help me to keep my eyes on You.
When I am afraid, I give my eyes to you.
When I am anxious, I give my eyes to you.
When I am grieving, I give my eyes on you.
When I am happy, I will give my eyes to you.
When I am… I will give my eyes to you.
Lord Your will be done. May we all with unveiled face look to You, trust in You, and reflect You, that we would be transformed into Your image and behold Your Glory.
