To know God Better and Better: Colossians Study

20121101-072659.jpg

“For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God
Colossians 1:9-10

Today’s reading from Colossians speaks about a great desire I have and something I seek daily. I too pray continuously for spiritual wisdom and understanding.

To have great spiritual wisdom and understanding is worth far more than any earthly riches! Because with this comes full and complete knowledge of God’s will, and who doesn’t want to know God’s will?

Then, because we know HIS will and do it, the way we live will always honor and please the Lord, and our lives will produce every kind of good fruit. I deeply desire to bring a smile to Daddy’s face!

All the while we will be growing as we learn to know God better and better……oh, what sweet words!

    “To know God better and better”

Doesn’t that sound just heavenly? To get closer and closer to HIM. To get cheek to cheek with HIM. Beautiful.

So, if we take our cue from Paul (and we definitely should) here’s what we need to pray for ourselves and each other:

  • We understand what God wants us to do. Then do it.
  • Gain spiritual wisdom
  • Honor and please God
  • Produce every kind of good fruit
  • learn to know God better and better
  • I’m praying this right now
