"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory
of the Lord, are being transformed [changed] into the same image
from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Believers spend far too much time praying, "God, change my
circumstances; change my coworkers; change my family situation;
change the conditions in my life." Yet we seldom pray the most
important prayer: "Change me, Lord. I am the one who stands in
need of prayer."

God orchestrates the steps and lives of all his children and he
does not allow anything to happen in us merely by happenstance
or fate. And, believe it or not, he has allowed your crisis. What
is he trying to tell you through it?

Like it or not, we are all in the process of changing in one way
or another. In the spiritual realm, there is no such thing as mere
existence; we are continually being changed, either for good or
for bad. We are either becoming more like our Lord or more like
the world, either growing in Christ or backsliding.

Are you becoming more sweet-spirited, more like Jesus? Are
you looking soberly in the mirror each day and praying, "Lord,
I want to conform to your image in every area of my life"? Or
has bitterness taken root, turning into rebellion and hardness of heart?

Let me plainly say that if you shield yourself from the convicting
Word of God and the voice of his Spirit, your life will become
more chaotic and your situation will worsen. I urge you to cry
out to the Lord honestly in prayer: "Change me, O God. Dig
deep within me and show me where I have failed and gone astray."

If you sincerely desire to be changed, God´s Word is full of
guidance and wisdom. If you will rely solely on the Holy Spirit,
he will unveil your eyes and you will begin to change in that very moment.
