‘…be transformed by the renewing of your mind’
When God guided Israel from Egypt to their promised land
why didn’t He provide a fleet of stretch limousines?
Why did they travel slowly step by step?
We read in Psalm 13 a lament about all these unchanging aggravations
And how the Psalmist was faced with continual challenges
And with what appears to be unsolvable problems
The groaning complaint is how long will these troubles last?
The Psalmist pleads that God will intervene
He appeals that his enemies would be corrected
He implores God to change the opinions of others about him
He requests that his life would have a positive impact on others
He pleads that he won’t be disgraced before he dies.
He cries for immediate help,
He begs for vindication.
He admits his doubts
He asks that his heart would be filled with trust in the Lord
He urges the Lord to lift his heart up to an attitude of praise and gratitude
In the wilderness of this world we’re led step by step and day by day and
there is constantly opposition in our path to teach us to draw on God’s solutions
