It is often in the time of prayer that God moves in the heart of the believer and reminds them of the areas in which He desires obedience and change to take place. The change that God is concerned about could be in one’s words, actions, responses, or behavior. God’s great desire is that His children walk, live, and demonstrate His power and presence in their daily conduct.
There ought to be obedient changes being made in our life to reflect the work of God. As a believer we have become in Christ a “new creature” not to act, talk, walk, live, respond, or conduct our life as an unbeliever. However, these changes only take place as we obey the Word of God under the direction and conviction of the Spirit of God. It is God working in us to give grace and strength as we respond in obedience to what needs to be changed in our life.
Obedience is the key. What changes does God want to see in my life? Are we listening and eager to respond to be more like Christ? Change will not take place until we change in obedience to the moving of God.
