Ageing is something that seems to happen naturally to everyone from the moment of birth. At first, you crave getting older and becoming more mature, but as time goes by, you question "Why?" and wonder what harm could exist in allowing everyone to stop counting, and to stop ageing when they arrive at age twenty-five. Of course, I am well past twenty-five, yet I still recall the clear, smooth facial features and the firm jaw that I boasted at that age. But ageing is not what we think it is, and nor is it inevitable. It is a reversible consequence of spiritual tarnish.
When we arrive at a point in time that appears to require a few nips and tucks, many of us succumb to the fear of ageing. We either accept the fillers to plump out the features, or we surrender to the surgeon's vision of beauty. We succumb only because we have viewed the ageing process as an inevitable downhill process that increases in momentum with each new year. If that is your perspective, God wants you to know that he has locked into your DNA and into your psyche the vision of you at age twenty-five. When your spirit is fully cleansed and fully revived, the you that will emerge will be the you at age twenty-five. That may seem incredible and perhaps unbelievable, but at the very least you can wait and see.
Waiting for God may seem like a long and futile engagement. We want to experience instant change and God rarely, if ever, acts in accordance with our timeline or our agenda. In this instance, there is danger in failing to wait on God's timing. When you undergo plastic surgery, not only is the physical body damaged, but the spirit also is compromised and continues to heal long after the body has healed. The body's energy system remains in a depleted condition for as long as it takes to heal body, soul and spirit. Thus, unless you are in urgent need of immediate, life-saving surgery for a life-threatening condition, God's message to you is to wait.
