What Do You See in the Mirror?

I have some questions for you this morning. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you like what you see? Do you wish you looked different? Do you want to change what you see? The list of questions could go on and on. But do you see “God’s Girl” when you look in the mirror? Or do you just see all the things you don’t like or would like to change?

We as women get so caught up in the outward appearance that we forget we were made in His Image and He made us the way He wanted us. Now does that mean we shouldn’t try to look our best? Of course not, but we should not get so obsessed with the outward appearance that we forget the inward.

When we are so focused on what we see in the mirror we begin to believe the enemy’s lies and forget who we are in Christ. I want you to memorize the following statement that is a summation from the Search for Significance workbook and keep it in front of you at all times. So the next time you are tempted to believe Satan’s lies combat it with this statement:

My Identity in Christ

Because of Christ’s redemption, I am a new creation of great worth. I am deeply loved, completely forgiven, fully pleasing, totally accepted by God and absolutely complete in Christ.

Did you have a hard time reading that and believing it? That is probably because you have believed Satan’s lies for so long you no longer believe you are “God’s Girl.” STOP believing those lies and believe who you are in Christ.

We are here to come alongside you in any way we can. Please let us know how we can help.
