Every Good Work
“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,” ~Colossians 1:9b-10
Isn’t that the best prayer?! I would want someone to pray this for me - it is everything. It shows the Trinity of God: God the Father, God the Spirit and God the Son (Lord), all critical for our Christian living, binding us together as the body of Christ. This is 100% love in a prayer.
Another translation puts it this way: “We don’t stop praying that God will make you completely sure of what He wants by giving you all the wisdom and spiritual understanding you need;” Can you imagine being completely sure of what God wants?? It sounds almost impossible. But there it is in black and white. We CAN know. When we ask for wisdom, God gives it. Doors open, others close, opportunities arise, directing and guiding us. When it’s right, there is a supernatural sense of peace. And it’s not a one-and-done; notice the tenses of the verbs - bearing and growing.
Sometimes we tend to think that we have vending machine prayers - ask once receive once. But God gives abundantly without restraint. He longs to be gracious to us. I believe that He is still answering my Mom’s prayers for me from a zillion years ago. What Amazing Grace!
Have a blessed day!
