thoughtful in prayer

We are creatures of habit and also often struggle in ruts or matters we either have been weak in, or too easily fall into again. We too often can be superficial in our thinking and in what we hold to be true. We oftentimes need to wrestle through matters in prayer. If we ever think we’re foolproof, surely we should think again (I’m not referring to the kind of knowing we have by faith). But it is all too easy to resort to the default position we’ve accepted and lived by for years and years.

We need to be people of the Book and in prayer, much on both accounts. And we need to be intentional, deliberate, and not hasty in doing this. Part of what may need to take place is the development of new patterns replacing the old. As we await in Jesus God’s completed change of both us and of the world.
