Any life that is going to be used by God must be humbled and broken first. This is God’s process of showing us who He really is, and who we really are by comparison. But we fight against this process because we don’t want to be humbled; we don’t want to be broken. And so we continue trying to live in our own strength, by our own resources, and in doing so, we miss out on what God wants to do through us. Are you still resisting this work of God in your life?
Lord, Teach Us To Pray
The disciples had grown up hearing scripted prayers that were memorized and recited repeatedly, but when they heard Jesus pray, their hearts were stirred and they knew He was connecting to God in a way they never had. So they said, “Lord, teach us to pray.” In the response Jesus gave them, we can gain a right understanding of how to approach God, and we can truly learn how to pray.
