POWER TIME WORD DAILY DEVOTION with Overseer Mukwena
2 Corinthians 3:18
Skin and body care industry is booming business in modern society as women daily face mirrors to adorn and groom themselves.
Even for men, gone are the days of the unkempt Strongman Samson or unshaven Priest Aaron, as they too take care of themselves better.
May the good saints pardon our apparently irreverent descriptions of them!
DAILY SURRENDER TO THE MIRROR OF GOD'S WORD
But for you, as you take a look at yourself outside and inside with all your warts, blemishes, failings and shortcomings, you may think ‘I want to be better’.
You know well there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ (Romans 8:1).
You are free from all guilt and shame, but there is something in you that wants to reach for more, to run the race marked out for you, to be more like Jesus.
GOD'S WORD WILL MAKE YOU BETTER
As does lotions, God's word will perfect you (Psalms 1:3, 119:9-11).
The Holy Spirit is basically your helper to live God's character in you leading to his fruit manifesting. (Galatians 5:22-23).
THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKING TO YOUR DAILY HIGHER GLORY
The Holy Spirit will work inside of you to take you from one degree of glory to another "For we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18).
GOD WILL FINISH THE GOOD WORK IN YOU
He has promised to finish the good work that He has started in you, (Philippians 1:6), so all you have to do is surrender yourself to Him daily being, "confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:6 KJV).
Surrender yourself afresh to God today and expose yourself to his word by reading it, saying it and meditating on it.
Allow the Holy Spirit to work inside you for His Glory.
Pray and thank God for the great work He has started in you and which, as promised, He will finish and bring it to completion.
Prayerfully list down different aspects of your life and pray them through, noting practical activities you must do to improve each area.
BIBLE VERSE TO MEDITATE ON:
"We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
(2 Corinthians 3:18).
