Topic: The Impact of Prayer on Character [Seeds of Destiny 28 December 2018 Devotional]
Scripture: And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. Luke 9:28-29
Thought For The Day: Whatever destroys your prayer life renders you natural; whatever tampers with your prayer life makes you ordinary.
It has been confirmed that there is a relationship between prayer and character. Prayer moulds character. That is why prayerlessness equals characterlessness. A person of prayer is a person of character.
In Luke 9:29, concerning Jesus, the Bible says,
And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
This passage means, therefore, that:
- The place of prayer is a place of character transformation
As we approach and commune with God, we are changed into His nature. Stepping into the place of prayer is like stepping into the Presence of God. When a man spends time with God who is the Consuming Fire, by the application of the fire of His presence, there is a transformation of nature. Whatever destroys your prayer life renders you natural; whatever tampers with your prayer life makes you ordinary.
- The place of prayer is the place of exposure
When Isaiah encountered God in Isaiah 6:1-5, he condemned himself after discovering himself as a man of unclean lips. No one pointed out his sins to him. In the Presence of God, the Consuming Fire, the light of His countenance exposes the corruption of man (Psalm 36:9).
Beloved, maintain a buoyant prayer life for the transformation of your life and destiny.
Remember This: Whatever destroys your prayer life renders you natural; whatever tampers with your prayer life makes you ordinary.
- Ensure that you have a buoyant prayer life.
- Pray without ceasing.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for an increase in my prayer life. Let the fire of Your Presence wash away every sin and guilt from my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
