You are so easily frustrated. Why do you set your eyes on things below when I have commanded you to set your eyes on Me, the Author and Perfecter of your faith? You struggle and try to break free and to no avail. I am your freedom. I am your deliverer. Yes, you must cooperate with Me and the process. When it is time to come forth, I will open what is now bound by My power alone.
Notice when someone tries to help a butterfly emerge, it soon dies. It must go through the process. There are no shortcuts. Therefore, while you are safely hidden, rest in My promises and forego the struggle. Trust Me to bring you through safely, for surely My eye is upon you. Release your frustration and step into grace. When you emerge, even you won't recognize yourself. Then you will realize it was Me all along that kept you safe and secure until it was time to be revealed.
2 Corinthians 3:18 The Passion Translation (TPT)
We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Matthew 17:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Jesus’ Glorious Transfiguration
1 Six days later Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, Jacob and John, and hiked up a high mountain to be alone. 2 Then Jesus’ appearance was dramatically altered. A radiant light as bright as the sun poured from his face. And his clothing became luminescent—dazzling like lightning. He was trans-figured before their very eyes.
