"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 " (2 Corinthians 3:18, NKJV).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Today, if youre not seeing in your life what God promised in your spirit, then you arent finished yet! What you see is only temporary. Its time to keep moving forward. Dont put your stakes down; dont settle here. If where youre living doesnt match what God put in your spirit, be grateful, keep a good attitude, but keep stretching to a new level. If the medical report doesnt agree with what God says about you, dont accept it as the way its always going to be. Your attitude should be, This is just a season that Im passing through. Im coming into health, wholeness and victory.
Maybe its even something good. God has blessed you: a family, a job, health. Youve seen His favor, but you know there are greater levels in front of you. Its easy to think, Im happy. I have no complaints. God has been good to me. But, Ive learned that good is the enemy of great. You may be doing good. Youre using your gifts, but deep down you know you have more in you. Dont let good be an excuse to keep you from Gods best. Stir up your greatness and stretch into a new level!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for taking me from glory to glory. I trust that You are leading me on a journey of faith. I trust that You are bringing to pass every dream and every desire Youve placed in my heart in Jesus name! Amen!
Excellent message, thanks. I AM stretching to a new level and need all the help and encouragement I can get to Keep On Stretching.
