“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Romans 8:29 (KJV)
Did you know that if you was to glance at God’s map for your life, the “X” that marks the spot would be you being conformed to the image of Jesus? You may say, “Oh my! God has a major work on His hands with that one, because I feel so far away from that destination!” You may feel like your love walk is no where near like that of Jesus, nor your faith or your mindset. However, God wasn’t kidding! With every day that passes, with every test and trial, and in every season of your life, God is shaping your character to look just like His Son on the inside and behave like Him on the outside. He’s working within you that which is well pleasing in His sight (Hebrews 13:21).
You may desire to be more like the woman on your job who has a great love walk, or like your aunt who always looks so peaceful and unmoved, or like the woman at Bible study who is disciplined and is about kingdom business. Whether you’ve seen someone’s love walk, faith or discipline, the main Person you’re admiring in them all is Jesus. If you continue to walk with Him, you will reach God’s destination for your life!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for faithfully working in me that which pleases You most. There are people that I admire in my life, but I admire Jesus above them all. To be more like Him in my day to day life is what I’m going after. Help me love like Jesus, respond to situations like Jesus, and walk in the faith of Jesus. I yield to You and I trust that You will complete Your plan for my life. In Jesus Name. Amen
