Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

Week 17 Day 3

Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

Psalm 143:10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

            Sometimes the will of God is very clear. Sometimes it is not. When it is not is usually because there is so much mental clutter and emotional detritus that we cannot see what is right in front of us. What are some ways in which we may discern the will of God? First and perhaps most obviously the words of Paul the apostle offer the clearest path. Romans 12:  Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

            When we allow God the privilege of “renewing our minds” and we begin to see the whole of the world in a different light we may then be able to discern God’s intention for us right where we are. When our minds are renewed our whole being is delivered, redeemed because not only our minds are enlightened, but our hearts and spirits as well. We can see the problems of the past in an entirely different perspective. Our striving toward God becomes the whole yearning of our heart and we are able to overcome even ourselves he closer we draw to Him.

            What is troubling you today? The old song says” “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His heavenly face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.”  (Helen H. Lemmel Public Domain )
