Quiet changes happen when we finally open up to God in a lifestyle of prayer. Like the mistakes we make over and over again, it is the joy of God for us to come to Him in prayer and praise in the times that allow us to do so -- daily and most of the time. God's quiet change does not happen in spiritual places. Powerful ones do. The quiet ones happen at the office when you are being chosen to destroy the life of a colleague or make a sacrifice to defend him/her to the boss. They happen at the doorstep of your home when you are trying to decide to let go of a wife or a husband.
Proverbs 15: 31-33
If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Those who refuse correction hate themselves, but those who accept correction gain understanding. Respect for the Lord will teach you wisdom. If you want to be honored, you must be humble.
