God’s love transforms us – Prayer for Lent #day 23. Transformation starts when we give our lives to Christ but we need a complete transformation. A complete transformation includes the creation of a new heart and pure mind. Let’s tell God to transform us completely.
Bible Verse for Today
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
We cannot claim to be transformed if we have not renewed our minds. Transformation not only about changing the look or changing how you behave. The true transformation is about the heart. God’s love transforms us. God is interested in the heart of man. If we cannot renew our hearts, then we have not experienced the true transformation.
In the book of Psalm 24, a question was asked, a question of who will ascend to the hills of the Lord? In verse 4, an answer was given, “He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.”
God values a pure heart a lot because God Himself cannot behold sin. A clean heart is what we will need if we want to go to God. That is why we have to accept Jesus and use His blood to transform us. When the blood of Jesus has cleansed us and transform us, is when we will be able to get maximum access to God.
The reason for Lent is to transform ourselves and be prepared for Easter. At this point, we should have been transformed, we should have done away with things that spoil the heart. Our hearts should be given to God. God’s love transforms us.
The prayer we should be praying is in Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” If we are not praying this kind of prayer, we should start praying it now. It is time to start seeking a renewal of heart.
There are many things in our hearts that we need to get rid of so that we can be in line with the things of God.
