Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMP); And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.
Regression is not in the script of the life of a believer.
God is a God of increase. When He wrote your story, He did not stage a scene where you would find yourself moving backwards.
We have been designed to move from ONE DEGREE OF GLORY TO EVEN MORE GLORY.
In Psalms 84:7, He says we go from STRENGTH TO STRENGTH.
In Proverbs 4:18, He says, the path of the just shines BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER.
The Message version of this scripture says, the longer they live, the brighter they shine.
There are men who once run great ministries but now cannot command even an audience of ten. There are those who were business movers and shakers years back but now are the victims of poverty. There are those who were once respected by their peers but are now despised in the circles they once moved in.
That is not the story of a child of God. Refuse regression in any form. You never move backwards. You never diminish in ability and influence.
As children of God, we move from wisdom to deeper wisdom; from grace to greater grace; from joy to deeper joy; from understanding to more understanding; from riches to riches; from peace to more peace.
You are better today than you were yesterday. You will be better tomorrow than you are today. You will be better next year than you are this year. You will be better in five years than in the previous years.

GOLDEN NUGGET: As children of God, we move from wisdom to deeper wisdom; from grace to greater grace; from joy to deeper joy; from understanding to more understanding; from riches to riches; from peace to more peace.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I stand in the confidence that my life is meant for constant increase; for moving upward and for tangible progress. I choose the path of growth in everything that I do. It is your desire for me and it is the pattern of my life. I am growing in wisdom, in grace, in knowledge, in riches, in peace, in joy and in favour. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
