THE MIRROR OF FAITH (PART ONE)

by Rory Synoground

"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man is blessed in his deed."  (James 1:25)

Many times in praying for individuals I'll bring a mirror. This mirror is not just any old mirror. It is a special, supernatural mirror designed to give them a true and accurate reflection.

The reason I bring this mirror, is that they have become so consumed with the condition that is plaguing them, that they are unable to see themselves any other way.

This mirror is called “THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY”, which is the Word of God!

There is a reason why the Word of God is called “The Perfect Law of Liberty”. A law works all the time!  John 1:1-14 declares that Jesus is the Word of God, and that all things are created by and through Him.  Jesus went onto say that “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” (Rev 22:13)  So this reveals that God has done, and will continue to do a great work through Jesus, His Word. It’s a law! God’s Word is the beginning and the end of your situation.

John 8:31-32 says "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Once a person begins being consumed with what God has said, He begins cleansing their heart from that image of bondage, failure and loss. They begin seeing the right image of the freedom they have in Christ.

The word “LOOK” in James 1:25 means; "to bend over and peer into, to get a better look." When you begin to peer into the Word of God, you'll begin to see yourself as a person who has been healed, delivered, and made FREE! You'll begin to see an image of health instead of sickness, victory instead of defeat, freedom instead of bondage, prosperity instead of poverty, strength instead of weakness.

You’ll begin to see how valuable you are. God loves and adores you so much, He sent Jesus to pay the ultimate price of dying on the cross to rescue you and bring you back home! (John 3:16)

Colossians 1:13 says that God HAS delivered us from the power of darkness. 2 Peter 1:3 proclaims that God HAS given us ALL THINGS that pertain to life, and godliness. In Luke 10:19 Jesus Himself declares that He HAS given us authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us.  1 Peter 2:24 tell us that God HAS healed us.

Glory to God, are you beginning to see the reflection of total and complete VICTORY? God is telling us to look at this mirror, “The Perfect Law of Liberty”! We are to be preoccupied, impacted, and influenced by the truth of His Word.

James 1:25 says "But whoso looketh. . . this man is blessed in his deed." When we begin looking at the right thing, this is when we will begin experiencing the blessing of that truth in our lives.
