What do you see in the mirror?

"For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away." (Matt 25:29)

Do you know what Jesus is talking about here? At the very least, He's talking about all the blessings you've received. Many of God's children have a lot and yet think they don't. They are always complaining that they don't have the time, money, energy or qualifications they need for this or that. How untrue! You are blessed with all the blessings of heaven in Christ Jesus. You are called sons of Abraham and blessed with his blessing and inheritance. Every promise of the Scriptures is made yours in Him... it's freely given to you. Yes, there might be areas in your life where you don't see this reality yet. A disease, chronic financial problems, a miserable marriage or dangers lurking around every corner.

The first step in seeing the health, provision, love and protection and all the other gifts of God become manifest in your life is to know you have this as your inheritance, is to see yourself as a blessed recipient of all the grace of God and to expect their dawning in your life like the rising of the sun. Faith is nothing else. Jesus isn't about you becoming a moral person, worshiping in the right house of worship or calling yourself a this or that or being well-versed in theology. He was all about you receiving the good news (gospel). That's why He spent His short, but intense, three years of ministry preaching this good news to the poor, oppressed and sick. So what is good news to a poor man? What is good news to some one who is oppressed? And what is good news to the sick? It's provision, dignity and healing! It's everything He did to show you God's heart for you.

Today, realize how much God loves you. Stop magnifying your problems and defects precisely because you've been blessed by your Father in ways that are far beyond your imagination. Look at the mirror and see the glory of the Lord rising over you! That's when you'll start to fly.
