Hear a just cause, O LORD,
Attend to my cry;
Give ear to my prayer which is not from deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come from Your presence;
Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright.
You have tested my heart;
You have visited me in the night;
You have tried me and have found nothing;
I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Concerning the works of men,
By the word of Your lips,
I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer.
Uphold my steps in Your paths,
That my footsteps may not slip.
I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God;
Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.
Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
From the wicked who oppress me,
From my deadly enemies who surround me.
They have closed up their fat hearts;
With their mouths they speak proudly.
They have now surrounded us in our steps;
They have set their eyes, crouching down to the earth,
As a lion is eager to tear his prey,
And like a young lion lurking in secret places.
Arise, O LORD,
Confront him, cast him down;
Deliver my life from the wicked with Your sword,
With Your hand from men, O LORD,
From men of the world who have their portion in this life,
And whose belly You fill with Your hidden treasure.
They are satisfied with children,
And leave the rest of their possession for their babes.
As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness;
I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.
Read that verse over again.
It could even be a phrase.
No matter if it's one verse, one phrase, or one single word, Stop and think
about it for just a minute.

3. That's the Word speaking to you.
4. Pray and Thank God for this revelation and ask Him to make it clear how He wants to use it in your life
I think the day that I can say that I look like Jesus will be such a victory for me. I fail and flop still so much, and yet God's grace hold me together.
David also said he purposed that is mouth shall not transgress...
What a battle we have here on this Earth. Our flesh pulls against us, the world ttys to compromises us and the enemy wars against me. It's not easy to walk in the Christian walk sometimes. It's not easy to say, follow me as I follow Christ. Yet, this should be our aim. This is my aim, to be like Him.
To talk like Him, to love like Him, to behave like Him, and to live a life pleasing to Him.
2 Corinthians 3:18 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 toglory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord
We are being transformed more and more. It might take awhile to see the results but the more we spend that time with Jesus, hiding His Word in our hearts and lives, we will be being changed.
Are you deeper with God then last year or the year before? I hope so.
I also like to think this as a future verse when we die and finally see Jesus face to face.
I John 3:2 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
Oh one day, we will see Him face to face. One day we will be like Him. Our bodies will leave this corruption and put on incorruption, this mortal will put on immortality, and no longer will sin and death reign, and we will be with Him forever.
I can't wait to get my white robe, my new name, and my new dwelling place with the Lord. Streets of Gold, no more pain or sorrow, perfect bodies, in the presence of God daily, no more war, no more famines droughts or peril. Complete peace and tranquility. Heavenly sounds of worship, living in unity. AWWWW Everyday I desire be there more and more.
What Hope is Found in Christ!!! To be like Him, awww so awesome.
We have ETERNAL LIFE.
If you haven't given your heart to the Lord, nor surrendered your life to Jesus, why wait?
He loves you so much and God just wants to come and cleanse your life from sin and shame.
In Christ alone we have victory here on the Earth. In Christ alone in Salvation. There is no other name by which a man can be save, only Jesus. Just talk to God and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you and renew your spirit in Him.
If you have questions, leave a comment and I will do my best to answer them.
Double blessings to you.
