“Becoming Free”

Psalm 34:18 “ The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”

As it is stated in Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” This means that as your transformation is being done, a metamorphosis will occur. Let’s look at the caterpillar how it becomes a butterfly. The caterpillar is in this shell and as it is working it way out of that shell it becomes a cocoon then a butterfly.

The stages of the butterfly start with it being an egg, a caterpillar, a cocoon, and then the butterfly. As a human your stage is being in that shell of control, deciding on becoming you, moving into you, and then being you. Let me give you a real life scenario; as you enter a relationship and you commit yourself wholeheartedly to that relationship and that commitment turns into someone controlling you. After you come to your senses you realize that this is not how it supposes to be so you take it upon yourself to take back your life. What you did is work your way out of that shell and set yourself free to be you.

I leave you with these few verses to read and meditate on in becoming a butterfly.

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 “So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.”

You can obtain this transformation by; choosing to be transformed from your old ways and becoming that new you, by seeking GOD’s words and living it, by believing that GOD will transform you, pray as it is stated in Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”, and lastly by your vision, write it down and follow it.

Butterfly to me means setting yourself free to be who GOD has called you to be.

READ, PRAY, and MEDITATE on the word daily.

GOD Bless You Much Love Pastor Clara L Peters
