The Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 CORINTHIANS 3:17
Lord, I am so very grateful that You are constant and unchanging. Thank you that Your Spirit in me is
constant and unchanging too. Thank you that, where Your Spirit is, there is liberty. Whenever I look to
You, I am being transformed by Your Spirit into Your image from glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). Help me to
always reflect Your beauty. Keep me from looking at anything that would take away from Your glory in
Help me to value Your presence in my life more than I value anything else. I don’t ever want to do
anything to hinder the transforming work You want to do in me. When I look in the mirror I want to see
You reflected back. When other people look at me, I want them to see Your radiance too. Thank You
that you have the power to set me free from anything in my life that would keep me from all You have
In Jesus’ name I pray.
