But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day. (Prov. 4:18 NAS)
Spiritual transformation occurs each day of our lives as believers-some days more and other days less. In whatever case, God has designed your life to move in one direction only- brighter and brighter as the days go by until it becomes like the brightness of the sun at its maximum brightness. Your life is not designed to be stagnant or worst still, go backward. At any given time, including today, there is a degree of brightness you are living in. This brightness is the degree of God’s glory that is glowing in your life.
The secret of constant spiritual transformation is to keep your eyes fixed on Christ, beholding and seeing Him. As you see Him, you become transformed by the power of God to become what you see. It is summarized in this scripture “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 from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Cor. 3:18 NAS). Christ is the glory of God and we are in Him. As we see Him in the Word, we see who we are. That means you constantly receive revelation about Him in the Word.
Each revelation of Christ you receive upgrades your life and makes you brighter. Revelation is like the fan that blows on burning coals and each stroke makes it glow brighter. Keep beholding Christ constantly and you will never be stagnant or go backward in your life.
As you meditate on the verse above, think about your life being changed from glory to glory. See yourself in it.
It is one prayer that is guaranteed answers, like all other prayers according to His will-ask the Spirit to transform you each day including today. Pray that you will not be stagnant or go backward in your spiritual life, finances, relationships, business etc.
ACT ON THE WORD!
Do not make the error many believers sometimes make- struggling to change themselves.God does not want you to TRY to transform yourself-that’s what the world does, called “self-improvement”. 2 Corinthians 3 above tells us the transformation that occurs is by the power of the Spirit. All that God requires of you is to behold or look. Once you see, He transforms you to become what you see. Get revelation always from His Word. Seek His Word. It will transform you “struggle-free”.
