But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord – 2 Corinthians 3:18
Our opening verse describes the glory that comes from the Word of God. This glory is in the realm of the spirit; the realm we were born into as Christians. It’s the same realm that Jesus passed into after His resurrection; it’s a real place and we live there now. It’s a realm of glory and through meditation on the Word, we’re catapulted to that realm; the Word of God delivers that glory to us, and brings us into the glory.
As we look into the mirror of God, which is the Word, we’re “transfigured” into the same image of God’s glory that we see in the Word. The more you look, the more you’re changed. How do you look into the Word? It’s not by leafing through the pages of the Bible as you would a newspaper; it’s through intense study and meditation. Through meditation, the Word takes root in your spirit, and becomes one with your spirit; it creates a picture in your mind: the image of God’s glory. Thus, it matters what you see, when you “look” into the mirror of God.
For example, the Word says you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2Corinthians 5:21); let that be what you see. See yourself as the justified one; the one who’s been declared “not guilty!” 1 Corinthians 6:11 says, “… but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” See yourself as such!
Keep talking the Word, regardless of circumstances. The Word in your mouth will grow mightily and prevail over adversities (Acts 19:20). That’s the glory of the Word. As you meditate on the Word and speak it forth, you transcend to the realm of glory, where you view life from the mountain top, seeing only possibilities.
Remember, you’re triumphant in Christ Jesus (2Corinthians 2:14); you’ve already overcome all things (1 John 4:4); the whole world is yours (1Corinthians 3:21-22). Stay your mind on these realities from God’s Word. See yourself in health, wealth and prosperity (3John 1:2). Halleluiah!

Dear Father, I thank you for the glory in your Word, which is evident in my life. I’m making progress in life, and winning every day. I have the mind-set of a champion, and the wisdom of God mantles my heart, evident in the excellence of my words and actions today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
