For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
~ Romans 8:29
The Bible says we have been conformed to the image of His Son. Everyone has an “image” of themselves. Everyone sees themselves a certain way. And sometimes, we need to have a little “mirror offering” – we need to trade our image of ourselves into the image God has of us.
If you see yourself as an addict, failure, or a disappointment, I want you to give a mirror offering to the Lord and break that image over your life. In exchange, I want you to declare God’s image over your life. When you look at yourself, you’ve got to look at yourself through the water of His Word, the power of His Spirit, and the blood of Jesus.
You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus (see Romans 8:37). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (see Philippians 4:13). Not through your own might, not through your own image, but through His image, you can do things that you’ve never dreamed or imagined if you’ll look at yourself through the image that He has of you.
Declare God’s image over your life today. Ask God to help you see yourself how He sees you!
