So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
Dear Lord, Thank You for Your Words this morning, and Spirit, and compassion and mercy and goodness! Thank You for sharing Your will, spiritual understanding and wisdom with us. Thank You for making a way for us to honor and please You with our lives, by growing in You and producing Your fruit. Lord, as we read this our minds create a VISION from the Words, as to what this make look like - lived out. That imagination, may or may not be You sharing with us a preview as to how we are to continue our walk with You.
Father, help us to discern between that which is us, and that which is You. The last verse says...You will grow as you learn to know God better and better. This, to me, implies You are fully aware of the challenges and weakness we may face as we begin to understand, but we are growing as we look to You during those times. Thank You Jesus, amen!
