Psalm 23:2-3
The word ‘transformation’ is synonymous with change. Everyone desires a change. People love to experience positive change in their status – be it marital, financial, emotional, political, health, etc.
The truth is that any change that will have a lasting impact must be from within. Transformation is a process that starts from within, and thereafter, reflects on the outside.
2 Cor. 4:16-18 —-> Romans 8:11

For us to experience significant change in our lives, we must experience the new birth.
Except we are born of water and the Spirit, we cannot experience the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh indeed and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit indeed… (John 3:3-6).
Spiritual transformation is a process which God takes us through, in order to ensure that we conform to the image of His Son (that the fullness of Christ may be revealed in us), i.e. Growing into sonship (Rom. 8:29; Gal. 4:19).
It’s a process through which we get built up and lay hold on our God-given inheritance, as the sanctified of the Lord (Acts 20:32).
Today, I want us to examine the spiritual transformation that God takes us through in four dimensions:
‘…He makes me to lie down in green pastures…’

The Lord provides our needs by making available to us, all things that pertain to life and godliness.
As the Good Shepherd, He makes us (the sheep of His hand) to lie down in green pastures, that we may feed and feast on the ‘evergreen’ Word, the incorruptible seed which lives and abides forever (1 Peter 1:24-25).

‘…He leads me beside the still waters…’
The Lord leads us to the place of rest, peace, calmness (Matt. 11:28-30).
Even when we face adversity and experience tribulation, we are rest assured of His ever-abiding presence.
He is the One who leads us to the water. He is the Giver of the water. Moreover, He is the Water of life (John 4:10-14).
He is offering Himself to you today, that you may have eternal rest!
Are you willing to accept Him?

‘…He restores my soul…’
The Lord, through His Word refreshes, renews and quickens your soul. He engages our thoughts, challenges our intellects and adjusts our ethics.
Furthermore, He pierces (penetrates into) our hearts, that He may bring His ultimate desire into fulfilment in our lives (Heb. 4:12).
Rom. 12:2; Eph. 4:23.

I pray, you will experience restoration in this month, in every aspect of your life, in the name of Jesus Christ!

‘…He leads me in the paths of righteousness…’
He leads us in the way that we should go (Isa. 48:17). He shows us the path of life (Psalm 16:11). He orders our steps (Psalm 25:4-5; 37:23).

As you open up yourself to the Lord for divine revelation and direction, He will reveal Himself to you; Furthermore, He will lead you in the path of righteousness.
2 Cor. 5:21.

As we have come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace for help, may the Word of God enforce a trans-generational change in our lives today.
