The Purpose of ReFlection

Welcome to The Road2Wholeness Blog! Thank you for taking the stroll today.  If you've been following the series, I know you've been waiting.  Me too!

I close out this series with "The Purpose of ReFlection".

I'm all about ReFlection and ReFlective Meditations, and apparently so is the Bible.  From the beginning reflection was made a great part of the story.  To begin, let's go to Genesis 1:6.   It is written, "And God said, 'Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water."

Now let's back up to verses 1 and 2, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters."

Maybe you've never considered this, but water is naturally nature's mirror.  When God divided water from water He naturally also divided the Spirit of God between heaven and earth, making way for earth to reflect heaven, and giving man the Spirit of Creation.

If we look at the prayer the Lord taught to His disciples, in Matthew 6:10, it reads "your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

In Genesis 30:38, Jacob multiplied the spotted and speckled flock by having the unspotted flock reflect on the peeled branches he placed in the waters in front of them.  Therefore, The Purpose of ReFlection is to reproduce.

This is also why the Word says, "If you're eyes are healthy, you're whole body is filled with light."  But do not fear the darkness, for from darkness we pull light. As it was stated, darkness was over the face of the deep.  And we are the deep.  Within us is a body of water where the Spirit of God hovers.  And it is from this place within that we call light forward.  It is from this place where we can mirror God.  And it is from this place that we can also differentiate our human nature from our heavenly nature.

In reality, when we stand before a mirror we see a duplicate of our self reflected back to us, but the vault God puts between heaven and earth reflects heaven to earth.  It's for our development.  And this is why Jesus said, as it is in heaven let it be so on earth.

I believe that we all have our own heavenly image reflected to us.  In the story of Samson, an angel of the Lord visited his parents and told them they would have a child who would be a Nazirite of God.  His parents tried to find out how to raise the child, but the angel only had instruction for the mother (She was not to eat anything unclean, drink wine, or any other fermented drink).  Therefore God personally developed Samson into his vision.  Even Samson's parents did not know his secret.  And although his hair was the secret to his strength, we see that his loss of vision led to his death; as he regained strength but could not regain his vision.

All of this for me amounts to, seek God's face.  Ask Him to lead you into his vision of you, and meditate on that vision.  When the heat comes, do not fear, but be like a tree planted by the rivers of living waters, who will never fail to bear fruit.
