Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities June 20 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Today’s Topic: Don’t Forget Who You Are
- The key takeaway from today’s devotional is the transformative power of God’s Word in shaping the identity of believers. As they study and meditate on the Word, they discover their true image and identity in God, which they should retain and not forget. This identity includes dominion over all things and victory over adversities.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
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).
God gave us His Word to enable us see ourselves the way He sees us, understand things from His perspective, and live to fulfill His perfect will. God’s Word reveals God’s image and opinion of you, which is the image and opinion He wants you to have of yourself. So as you study the Word and see your true Image and identity, retain the picture; don’t forget who you are.
James 1:23-24 says, “For If any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he Is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.” Observe the underlined portion.
Read Yesterday’s Devotional
Interestingly, it doesn’t say that the one who doesn’t do the Word forgot what he looked like”; rather, it says such a fellow is like a man who looks carefully at his own natural face in a mirror, thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and forgets “the kind” or “the type” of man that he saw. Gods Word reveals the type or kind of person you are; the “species” of being that you are.
You have dominion over all things. You reign victoriously over Satan, sickness, failure and death. Hallelujah! This is who you are according to God’s Word; live accordingly. Praise God!
Dear Father, your Word is the reflection of your immense glory, greatness, excellence and success deposited in my spirit. I’m the expression of your righteousness and the unveiling of your goodness 10 the world. I’m the effulgence of your glory, perfection, beauty and grace, and I’m conscious of your supernatural me. My life indeed an unveiling of the virtues and perfections of divinity Hallelujah!
2 Corinthians 3:18 AMPC
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
James 1:22:25 NKJV
22 But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth].
23 For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror;
24 For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like.
25 But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience).
