Sometimes I can’t look in the mirror – it just isn’t me. That is not what I look like. When God gives you His Spirit you see things differently. You are not what you see in the mirror. The body we have is only a tent. God is a Spirit, and you start to see in the Spirit. When you see yourself in the spirt – you are young. There are no glasses, no fat rolls, no limps, no wrinkles, and no age.! As as it is in Heaven, let it be on Earth. No sickness, no glasses, no age – we are all young! Hallelujah!
Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name.
And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.(Malachi 3:16-17 AMP)
For you are a holy people [set apart] to the Lord your God; and the Lord has chosen you to be a peculiar people to Himself, above all the nations on the earth. (Deuteronomy 14:2 AMP)
And the Lord has declared this day that you are His peculiar people as He promised you, and you are to keep all His commandments; ( Deuteronomy 26:18 AMP)
Praise the Lord! For the Lord is good; sing praises to His name, for He is gracious and lovely!
For the Lord has chosen [the descendants of] Jacob for Himself, Israel for His peculiar possession and treasure. For I know that the Lord is great and that our Lord is above all gods. (Psalm 135;3-5 AMP)
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9)
