Devotion by Trevor Bradley
Paul writing to the church at Colossae starts out in the 1st chapter and says of them:
“You are faithful brethren..you exercise and live by faith in Christ..I hear of your love for the saints/fellow believers…and the hope place in God’s word/the truth.. how you have born fruit and how the Lord has multiplied your harvest of souls…this driven by your understanding that you are objects of HIS amazing grace”( Colossians 1 vs 1-6)..
How I wish that could be said of me..
Colossians 1 vs 9-14
” I have prayed that you will be filled with the knowledge of His will. That you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, pleasing Him in all you do. That you might bear fruit and increase in the knowledge of God, strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, that through this you will remain steadfast, patient and full of joy – giving thanks to the Father. For He has delivered you from the domain of darkness and transferred you into the Kingdom of His Son, in whom there is redemption and the forgiveness of sin”. (paraphrased for effect)
Wow!! what a prayer…FOR YOU. That I believe is praying according to His will and the prayer that the Father will answer.
So be it for you, so be it for us..
