Good Words for Today: April 14

“Predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son” (Romans 8:29). If God’s #1 goal is to make me like Jesus Christ, then he has many lessons to teach me. Most of those lessons can only come through heartache and difficulty because most of us learn more through the hard times than we do through the good times. Little by little God chips away at your weak points and slowly develops the character of Jesus Christ within. We aren’t there yet, but God isn’t finished yet. Our prayer should be, “Father, do whatever it takes to make me more like Jesus today. Amen.”
