Devotional For December 8, 2023

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;
‭‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭23‬

Just as we see our reflection in a mirror, the Bible reflects the truth about our lives. As we immerse ourselves in God’s Word, the Holy Spirit gives us understanding of His will.

Simply hearing the Word is not enough; true transformation comes from applying its principles in our daily lives. Hence, the reason why we are to listen to the Holy Spirit of God.

As we reflect on the truths and principles of the Bible, we are led to live a life of liberty and blessing. The Word of God serves as a mirror and allows us to examine our actions, thoughts, and attitudes.

Choose one aspect from your reflection to actively work on throughout the day. Whether it’s showing more love, practicing patience, or seeking forgiveness, strive to live out God’s Word.


Lord, thank you for the mirror of your Word that guides and shapes my life. Help me not just to hear, but be a doer of your commands. Give me true freedom in living according to your perfect law. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
