In the course of my reading and personal devotional time, I make a practice of writing down questions that need my deep reflection and prayer. I have found it to be a good exercise in spiritual growth. We never get too old to grow in our relationship with the Lord. There are always areas of our lives that need improvement. It dawned on me that it might be helpful for you to see some of the questions for which I am seeking answers in my own life. It could just be that you too could profit by giving serious thought and prayer to what I call “profound thoughts”. Here they are:
- How are you doing spiritually? Are you growing in your relationship with God?
- Is there order in your life? If not, what steps are you taking to achieve it?
- Are you concerned about influences outside of yourself that might jeopardize your integrity?
- Are you spending adequate time in Bible Study and Prayer?
- What are you doing to watch over your heart with all diligence?
- Do you see God at work in your life? In the Church, In your family? In what way?
- Are you more influenced by God’s Word or by the media or opinions of others?
- Do you intentionally pray for those who do not know Christ as Lord and Savior? What do you do to share your faith with them?
- Are you too busy doing insignificant things rather than concentrating of what really matters in life?
- Do you really love Jesus? How do you show it?
Romans 12:2 can help us ponder these thoughts. It says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of you mind, that by testing you may discern what is the Will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
In His Love,
