5/30/16 Do You See What He Sees?
“Do you remember what your life was before you gave it to Me? Do you realize how far you’ve come? You may think that not much has happened, or that you’re not progressing far enough; but I see things differently. I see you as righteous. That is something for which you have no benchmark. I see you as being on your way to holiness. Your mind has little comprehension of what holiness is. I see you as becoming more prepared to thrive in the heavenlies each day, as your worldly ways diminish within you.
"You are a new creature. Your old life is no longer part of the world in which you are functioning. As you learn more of the spiritual world’s truths, you will cast aside the lies of the physical worlds that formerly controlled you. You are becoming freer each and every day that passes. Do not become discouraged at how little progress seems to be taking place. I see progress that you don’t. Keep coming to Me. I will change what needs to be changed. Your life is in My hands. I am very capable of doing what is necessary. Just keep coming. I am waiting.”
2 Cor. 3:18 AMP And with all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another, [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
Heb. 10:14 NIV “because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.”
Gal. 2:20a AMP I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]: it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me…
We might as well make up our minds that we don’t see what God sees. Because of the cross, we have become new creatures, prepared for a new eternal world. We are also becoming more familiar with that world every day as we keep drawing close to our Father God. We don’t get how it’s happening, but that doesn’t really matter. Our Lord does understand how it works and we can trust Him and His Word to accomplish it in us.
Thank You, Lord,
