I hope you see that all of these tools help in some way simulate what Jesus was up to during His 40 days spent in the wilderness. During that time, Jesus had nothing with him but stuff provided by God. Jesus removed all the stuff of the world from His experience; Jesus cut out the clutter. But Jesus ALSO replaced the clutter with stuff that helped Him discern God’s will. That’s what these tools are about – finding some things to replace the clutter in your life, finding some things that direct your focus to God’s will for your life. If you practice one or more of these things for 40 days, I am confident you will become much more at ease with this discernment thing…even with the seemingly tiniest decisions in your life.
