Filled with the Knowledge of His Will

Paul, writing to the saints and faithful brethren in Christ in Colossse:

For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask

  • that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
  • that you may
    • walk worthy of the lord,
    • fully pleasing Him,
    • being fruitful in every good work and
    • increasing in the knowledge of God;
  • strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;
  • giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

…then…

Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Generous Father,

Just like the saints and brethren that Paul wrote to in Colosse, we need You.  We need to be filled with the knowledge of Your will.  Without You, we can’t stand perfect and complete.  So, like Paul for the Colossians, we ask that You would fill us.

Amen

Today I am reading: Colossians 1 – 4

    1 Thessalonians 5:17 & 18
    17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Oh Lord we need Your wisdom, help us to continually be in communication with You. We desire to know and do Your will. Help us to see you in each circumstance that we face. Help us to know Your heart. Let me not be hard hearted. Soften my heart Oh Lord. When an opportunity should arise to speak of You, let me be bold. Let me be used by You. Let me speak Your words, not my words.
