Live a Life Worthy of the Lord

- This (verses 9 to12) is one of the most beautiful of Paul's prayers for the churches. It's one of my favorite prayers I pray for my children.
- What should we desire to be filled with? The knowledge of God's will, all spiritual wisdom and understanding. "For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 2:6) As a result of being filled with these, we may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way. What does that kind of life look like? Bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, and more (in verses 11, 12).
- Want to know God's will? "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing, and perfect will." (Romans 12:2) Mind transformation (by God's Word and the Holy Spirit) is a prerequisite to being fruitful in every good work and growing spiritually. To know God more & more and to understand His heart/will, we must spend much time with Him in prayer and in His Word. There are no shortcuts!

Amen and again I say Amen! So many great prayers written by Paul as he prayed for the churches..I am trying to be Spirit focused these days and trying hard not to conform to the worlds way.. so difficult when the world is so loud around you. That is why prayer and focus on Gods Word is vital.. Thanks for posting this.. Keep on living loud for the Lord.. It means much to those around you! Blessings!
