How To Change Your Life

#Thread
"...As we look at the glory of God in a glass (mirror),we are changed into that same image... "

Beautiful.

This simple verse encapsulates all we need to live a glorious life here on earth as saints of God .

Let's dig deeper.
It says "as we look"...look at what? "The glory of God ".Where? "In a mirror". What happens ?"We are changed".

When are we changed?
When we look at the glory of God in a mirror.

Not when we look at ourselves.

Change comes from looking at the glory of God in a mirror,not urself
Many of us are looking at ourselves: looking at our limitations and inabilities .

The word of God says "I am strong and healthy " but I look at my body it says I am weak and dying .
So i confess that I am weak and dying.

Don't look at your body,look at the mirror.
It says "our light affliction works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,while we look at the unseen"

Dont Look at what is "seen".

When you look at what is seen, "you will make statements like
Me: I want to buy a car
Bank account: u can only buy a bicycle.

Yet u claim u have eternal life (the VERY life of God. What did Jesus- GOD IN FLESH do when he needed to produce what wasn't readily available?eg;pay tax).
u say with God all things are possible.
But u have limited
your life to your account balance.

It's sad.

Of what importance is serving a supreme God if you cannot experience supernatural living?.
So how do you change your life ? By looking at the word.

1. What do you want to change?. Write it down. Be specific.
Jesus standing before the blind man still asked him "what do you want me to do for you ?".No assumptions.

Just because you are blind doesn't mean u want to see.
2. What does the word say about that situation?. This is where searching the scriptures comes into play.

3. Look at the word: from that day, never look at yourself (the situations) look at the word.

The NIV says "as we contemplate the glory Of God".I like that!!!.

CONTEMPLATE
To contemplate means to look thoughtfully at a long time .

So we are not talking of something you do in 5mins and call it a day.

You think through the scriptures. you put yourself inside.
You begin to school yourself in the manifestations of your dream.
The Bible says "when the cloud be full of rain, they empty themselves ".

That is what you are doing : getting the clouds in your heart full.

You can contemplate while cooking, driving, chatting.

You put that scripture in front of u.
You are squeezing power out of it.
4. Declare the word : meditation on the word will always lead to confession of the word.

If your meditation ends in your mind,it is not complete.

It says 'this book of the law shall not depart out of YOUR MOUTH". Your mouth. Your lips. Talk the word.
I remember years ago,I had so many issues to deal with,I sent a DM to @solaadio .he didn't know me personally then.
I asked "sir,i have this & that to fix .Do i take it one situation at a time or...?

He replied.

"No. You cannot have too much words in the realm of the spirit"
Burst my brain!.
I will never forget those words as long as i live.

The Bible says "so mightily grew the word and prevailed ".

That is what with you as you contemplate and declare the word.

It will grow and prevail.
It might not happen immediately but eventually it will.
2 cor 3:18 says "We are changed into that same image".

It means to metamorphose; which is a gradual change in an animal.

It might not happen instantly but it will happen.

The WORD of God NEVER fails. If it failed, it wasn't the word of God.
5. The word will produce the result/ work.

This is what I love the most about that verse. It says "even as by the spirit of the Lord".

It is not by might,nor by power but by my spirit.

The change will come from the spirit not your effort.
Stop struggling, start meditating.

If the rain haven't poured down, it means the cloud are not yet full.

This is also how you also develop godly character and break bad habits. Meditate on the word .

God bless you
