Looking In The Mirror

Proverbs 27:19
As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man.

Yesterday, I used Proverbs 19:21 as my launch text for a message about God's purpose for each person's life - Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that will prevail. Today's passage reminds me that the plans I make reflect my heart for God. My heart reflects what kind of man I am; my integrity, my love for God, what my priorities are, etc. These things are reflected in what I say (out of the abundance of the heart...), the choices I make for obedience, even how I process and think about my life (as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he...). All of these things are clearly visible - as clear as my reflection in a mirror.

Lord, what do you see? Does my life reflect more than a desire to honor you, but actually does it. I don't want to be a man who is all talk, a man who thinks more highly of myself than I ought (or not walking in my authority either), and whose plans are based in the flesh not in the Spirit. Let me reflect the work of the Holy spirit which is conforming my life to the image of Christ.
