“… so that you could be dwell a life worthy of the Lord and please him in each approach: bearing fruit in each good work, rising within the data of God…” Colossians 1:10
I opened my electronic mail this morning to discover a pretty prayer for my day, despatched by certainly one of our longtime buddies. Our households have identified one another for years. Our children grew up collectively. We are able to go for months with out connecting but our hearts attain out to 1 one other and after we join it’s as if we talked yesterday. Our prayers for every others’ households are one thing we’ve got treasured over time.
Just lately we’ve been sharing, by way of fast electronic mail, the nuggets we discover in God’s phrase.
Right this moment my pal despatched me this prayer from Colossians 1:10
“We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light.” Colossians 1:9-12
It’s a prayer simply full of deep richness as we search to please our Lord with our lives. But it grew to become much more private and relevant as my pal prayed it for me and used these phrases,
“…might you reside a day worthy of the Lord…”
Could I dwell TODAY worthy of the Lord. That is a lot extra than simply the broad sweep of residing my life worthy of Him. Sure! That’s our prayer ….
Heavenly Father, Thanks for the wealthy phrases of Your Scripture. Could I dwell right this moment worthy of You … at the present time, this second. Thanks for the angle this thought brings. Could my phrases, my actions, my attitudes … all to be worthy of representing my Lord. You’re the one who fills me with Your knowledge and understanding by Your Spirit. You bear fruit via me as I develop in my data of You. You strengthen me in keeping with Your energy that raised Jesus from the lifeless. Now that’s the ability wherein I need to dwell at the present time! Thanks, Lord! I pray this in Jesus’ identify, amen.
