But we all, with unveiledface, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, first as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)
I think the greatest ragedy in life is tolive and not enjoy life. If you are warring with yourself all the time, you are not enjoying your life. God changes us from one degree of glory to another, but don't forget to enjoy the glory you are in right now while you are headed for the next one. Don't compare the glory you are in with the glory of some friend or family member who appears to be in a greater degree of glory. Each of us is an individual, and God deals with us differently, according to what He knows we need and can handle.
You may not notice changes on a daily basis, but as you look back over time you will see very definite changes in yourself. Believe that God is working, just as He said He would. Remember, we see after we believe, not before. We wrestle and struggle with ourselves because of all that we are not, when we should be praising and worshipping God for all that we are. As we worship Him for Who He is, God's character is released into our lives and begins to manifest.
Lord, I will be glad today because You are changing me from glory to glory. Thank You for working in my life. Amen.
