Proverbs 27:19 (NIV)
As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
One definition of reflect means to make manifest or apparent. What are the things that we are allowing to manifest in our heart? Sometimes we say “Oh, I didn’t mean to say that or act in that manner” but if we were to really look into heart and be honest with ourselves we will see that was an issue that we didn’t deal with it so it stayed tucked away in our secret places until it found the right opportunity to exposed itself. Water will only reflect whatever is in its path just as our lives will reflect what is really in our heart.
Father, I admit that I have some things hidden in my heart that I’m not proud of. I need your help to deal with these things the right way. I want my life to reflect You. I want my life to reflect your characteristics. I want a pure heart that reflects love and truth. I can only do this with your help Lord. . In Jesus name, amen!
