From Complaint To Praise. Part One. John Donnelly
Therefore being justified by faith, We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1.
The verse above says, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This means there is no war, no fight between you and God!
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has brought you into an everlasting peace with God. The peace referred to here is more than just a ceasefire or quietness; it means oneness. We have been brought into a perfect union, a perfect unity with God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
But we all, with unveiled face, Beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,
Are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, Just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
When you read the Word of God, you are looking into the mirror of God. The verse above tells us that what you see in the mirror of God as you “look” (study the Word), is the glory of God. It means that as you behold the glory of God you are changed into the glory that you see in the Word.
This is a new day.
Today is a new day! You can have a new beginning when you resolve to let go of your past, embrace God in your present and that will bring change to your future.
The beginning is the most important part. We need to begin to see more of our potential in Christ than we do of our flaws.
You need to decide that you are not going to stay as you are or where you are. God asked Israel how long would they stay at a mountain (Deut.1:6) You might not see the whole picture but you have to take the first step.
