Sometimes in the busyness and noise of life it can be hard to figure out what are the right things to be doing. What complicates life even more is that as we grow older and go through the various stages of life there are different questions that we must answer. There are different times of our lives where we need to be asking the question what is the right thing for me to be doing now?
So often I wish I could just pick up the phone and call God so that He can tell me the right and the best thing to do at that moment in time. However it not as easy as that.
This is where prayer has a powerful role to play in our lives.
In Romans 12:2 St Paul says to the Christians in the early Roman church, ‘be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you can judge what is gods will, what is good, pleasing and perfect.’
The season of Lent is recognising our need for God’s will to take place in our lives more perfectly. Through Lent this transformation can take place in our lives.
Should we engage it deliberately?
Prayer draws us into the presence of God where we can discover and discern more accurately His will for our lives.
ACTION: What areas of your life do you need to be transformed in? Once you have answered the first question reflect on the second question. If you were to meet Jesus right now, what would He say is the area of your life that needs to change?
