Today’s Notes:
I – “We have a fuller confirmation of the message of the prophets. You would do well to pay close attention to this word; it is like a light that shines for you in the darkness of night until the day dawns when the morning star rises in your own hearts.”
(2 Peter 1:19 – The Voice)

II – “And so we have been given the prophetic word—the written message of the prophets, made more reliable and fully validated by the confirming voice of God on the Mount of Transfiguration. And you will continue to do well if you stay focused on it. For this prophetic message is like a piercing light shining in a gloomy place until the dawning of a new day, when the Morning Star rises in your hearts.”
(2 Peter 1:19 – TPT)

III – meme:
Two people read the same Bible.
One sees reasons to love.
The other reasons to hate.
One sees unity.
The other division.
One finds prejudice
The other equality.
One discovers compassion.
The other indifference.
One goodwill.
The other malice.
Two people, one book. One Book, two views.
The book is a mirror.
The reflection is you.
~ N.W.

IV – “For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience).
(James 1:23-25 – AMPC)

V – “It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.”
― C. JoyBell C.

VI – “We don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are”
– Anaïs Nin

– Paramahansa Yogananda
