2 Corinthians 3:17-18(NKJV)
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
We grow from glory to glory. Each process should make us look more like Him. We yield to His Spirit. We get delivered. Our eyes are opened with understanding and we become more like Him. This is a constant cycle. The minute we feel like we have arrived and don’t need any more deliverance, is the moment where we become stagnant. God can’t transform you if you feel like you don’t have anything left to change. You will never see the next level of glory unless you yield to God showing you the areas of yourself that need to be dealt with. He wants to make those places in your life look like Him, just like he is looking in a mirror! So I encourage you today to check yourself. Evaluate if you are bringing forth fruit and growing. Ask God to show you what He wants to deal with. Cry out for deliverance. The faster you surrender, the faster the new level of glory may come. God wants to do a quick work. He wants to prepare you for new levels in every area of your life. He wants you to look forward.
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
As we look and move forward, God will elevate us.
Father, we thank you that your desire is to bring us from glory to glory. Deal with our hearts so that we can be convicted of the areas that you want to deal with for this season. We want to continue to grow. Forgive us for thinking that we have it all together. We need You in everything that we do and want to be transformed into Your image daily. Help us leave the old things behind and move towards the new thing that You have for us. Help us complete each process in Your timing so that You can finish the work that You start. We don’t want to get stuck, but we also don’t want to move prematurely. Make us aware of our assignments and the seasons as You shift. We want to be sensitive to the spirit and move when You move. We want others to see Your reflection when they look at us. We want to look like You so we surrender our will for Yours. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
