We all desire or strive for better. In some capacity of our lives. We want a better job. If in school, we desire our children to obtain better grades or if we ourselves are in school, we desire the same; but in order for us to become better people, we must accept change. Change is inevitable.
If you desire for your children to obtain better grades, they may have to change their study habits.
If you desire to have a better job, you may have to return to school for a degree or take additional classes for a specific certification.
With all of this temporal desire for better, what about your spiritual life? Do you desire better for the real you? Do you desire to hear the Lord to speak to you as if you’re having a face-to-face conversation with someone? Do you desire to feel His presence like the wind that blows on a fall day? Everything that you desire is attached to having a strong relationship with the Lord. Guess what? The Lord Himself desires better for us as well. Insomuch, that He wants to transform us to His image.
That is what the word of God does. The word transforms us into God’s image. As we continue to grow in the Spirit, we continuously grow into the image of our Father. Oh it don’t take much for me to get excited. JESUS! I want to be like you. Continue to study and you’ll get better. Continue to pray and you’ll get better. Continue to seek for the Spirit of God to be seen and heard through you, and you’ll do better.
“And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.” 2 CORINTHIANS 3:18 AMP
Imagine that the word of God is a mirror. As you hold up your mirror, does your life reflect the word of God and His principles? As we grow in God, we should become a reflection of His character. And as you transform:
- Life gets better.
- You Feel better.
- You make better choices.
- The things you want no longer matter because you realize what YOU want may not edify Him.
- Your image no longer carries so much weight because you want people to hear God speak when you open your mouth and see Him when they see you.
- You no longer care about being the life of the party because you want life and the light of Christ to enter the room and command the attention.
- What once was an issue now becomes a testimony.
- What once was a struggle is now a praise moment.
Make the word of God first in your life and watch your life become better. The best part of it all is to see the transformation from glory to glory. What a mighty God we serve. Get Jesus, and you get better!
