Every day in this world I live in, I find myself being judgmental, not towards others, but against myself. I judge the way I look, the way I behave, and even the way I feel. I rob myself of the experiences of my salvation, of being loved continuously, and perfectly. It seems to me that I must be satisfied with what I see in the mirror and this reflects my worthiness of having God love me. This could be further from the truth. It also seems easier to realize myself being a child of God, when everything in my life is going smoothly, and I feel good about my performance today. Now when I feel discouraged, I want to look inward of myself and correct whatever is wrong. God then tells me, “Instead of fixing yourself, fix your gaze.” Fix your gaze on God, the lover of your soul. I must not use my energy to judge myself, I must redirect it to praising God, always remembering that He sees me clothed in the righteousness of Jesus, and not my own.
