1 JOHN 3:2 NKJ
2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is
revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
God's plan is to change you. He will not quit until you are like Jesus Christ.
What I hang onto is "It has not yet been revealed what we shall be." Often I look at myself and think, "I wish God would take a little more pride in His workmanship." But nobody's finished 'til they're dead. Looking at myself with such a critical eye makes no more sense than walking into the kitchen on Thanksgiving morning, looking at the pale raw turkey, and saying, "Yuck! Who would eat THAT?!"
ROMANS 8:29 NKJ
29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
God has already made the decision. You WILL be like Jesus! (It may take awhile -- but God has plenty of time.)
Surely this doesn't mean an identical physical appearance, but perfection. Perfection morally, spiritually -- and yes, even
physically and mentally.
So don't be discouraged with where you are now. God is still at work and He is no quitter.
PHILIPPIANS 1:6 NKJ
6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus
How is God doing this? Primarily through His Word. So, stay in the Word. The more you expose yourself to the accurate Word of God, the more you will be changed into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
Though it's hard to keep that perspective in daily life!
