Have you ever really thought about the fact that light travels continuously? Unlike sound which needs material to vibrate through and it dissipates as it travels, light remains as strong as ever. Since the moment God said, “Let there be light,” it has traveled creating new galaxies. When Paul spoke in 1 Corinthians about us becoming a ‘new creation’, I believe this began a continuous work in us from the moment of new birth. 2 Corinthians tells us that as we continue to use God’s Word as a mirror we will be transfigured into His image. In other words, we will begin to look more like the in Christ being He always intended for us to be.
Part of the reason why this seems so difficult is that we receive Christ in our lives and submit to Him, but then try to change ourselves into who we think God wants us to be. Similar to natural light, God’s light (His revealing of Who He is meant to be in our entire being) is meant to continue to move and create in us constantly. When we switch our focus on how WE need to change ourselves we are no longer looking into the revealed knowledge of who God is. Then His supernatural recreation is substituted with our works mentality.
So how do we stay in the revealed knowledge state and remain in construction-mode? Worship. In the beauty of worship, where your focus is no longer on yourself but completely in awe of God and His glory, He reveals Himself. In that place; your striving, hurts, pressure and disappointment are replaced with His truth about you and your future. He replaces your perspective with His and reveals to you how He is working in every area of your life. At this place of brokenness and vulnerability, God deposits a peace which surpasses human understanding. He sets things in order and reconstructs all the missing pieces in your heart and emotions with a simple moment in His presence.
Read 2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC)
18 And 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.
So every day we can expect to be a new creation. We can expect a deeper understanding of who we are in Him. Every day in His presence we can expect to be whole and restored.
What are you expecting in Him today? It is yours. Found in the beauty of true worship.
