LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
Romans 8:29 AMPC
For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
It is our destiny to be like Jesus…from within! But that is not possible by any human effort or pretense. There is no imitation of Christ. It is not possible to copy One Who is the only begotten Son of God. Such an idea amounts to lunacy and ends in failure and despair.
But we are taken through the door of repentance into the divine purpose of God, which is this: the Father will Himself – by the Holy Spirit – form us into Christlikeness. He intends to achieve such an impossible formation…in every born-again believer.
All He asks is that we look.
