And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
Colossians 1:9-10 ESV
God intended as we walk with Him, we should also grow in Him. He wants us to pass our infants stage and start growing in the Son of His love. He wants us to overcome every sin that easily entangle us and seek to know Him more in the person of Jesus Christ.
The plan of the enemy is to keep us stagnant, he doesn't want us to grow and know God more. That's why He wants us to continue living in our past, and hold past's grudges. Things like un-forgiveness and hatred can cause us to remain in the same position in life and prevent us to grow more in the Lord.
Paul the Apostle prayed to Colossians that they may filled with the knowledge of Christ will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. It is my desire to see you filled with spiritual wisdom and understand; so that you may walk worth of the Lord and pleasing Him in everything you do.
This morning, I pray that you may grow in our Lord Jesus Christ. There are some things you need to let go by now. There are some old friends who you need to leave them, and ask the Lord to bring you some new people in your life that; will help you fulfill your purpose in life. You need to mature enough that you may know there is no need for you to be like everybody else. Instead you need to live a unique life style while doing the will of the Lord in your life.
Sometimes we tend to follow people that we may be seen as cool people. These people may end up leading us into sin. It is about time for you and me to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We need to follow His plan and purpose over our lives, we need to read and study the word of God that we may understand God's mind. Don't wait for other people to study the Bible that you may ask them questions; but start studying it that you may get the whole truth.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to grow in Christ Jesus. I want to live the life worthy of my calling in Christ, help me to that by the power of your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
