But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
Sometimes even when we look in the mirror, we don’t truly see ourselves. It is not until we admit that we are blinded by fear and self, and fear of self, can we take the next step in making things right in our lives as God intends. It’s not about shame. It’s about authenticity and being aligned with God.
What are you really seeing when you look in the mirror? Do you really hear the words that are coming from your mouth?
Do you think we can spend our lives analyzing, counseling, and judging others yet never truly turning inward on ourselves to address our own issues? We can’t tell others to get spiritual, psychological, or medical treatment by trained and licensed professionals if we fail to do so ourselves.
We must practice what we preach. That also means that we must turn to God to reveal our truths so that we can do, speak, and think right by Him. There are no excuses. Let’s stop short-changing ourselves.
Father, whatever I don’t see please show me. Whatever ways I am not aligned with Your plan, please forgive me and then redirect me. I expect Your discipline when I’m not self-disciplined. I want to improve. I want to do better and be better in all ways, to all people.
I don’t want to walk around judging, critiquing, and criticizing other people through my self-righteous lens. I am no better or no worse, and only through humility can I correct this imbalance that I carry within.
Forgive me for my phoniness. Forgive me for the shame I carry and the shame I cast upon others. It is not of You and I want to be free from it. I ask for deliverance. I thank You now for my realignment. To You I give all the credit and glory. Amen.
And with that family, I pray that you are blessed, that you see and embrace your blessings, and that you are a blessing to others.
