Your devotional meditation is taken from Colossians 1:9, which says,
“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.” (ESV).
It is necessary to know the most important things we need to live in victory. In Paul’s prayer for the believers in Colosse, He knew that they needed to know what God’s will was for them. They needed an in-depth knowledge of God’s revealed will, that is, His Word in their lives so that they would be totally controlled by Him. That is what we are to strive for in order to glorify the Lord by living life in a way that is pleasing to Him.
The necessity of knowing God’s Word will lead to gaining truth from the Scriptures and applying it to our everyday lives. When we are submissive to studying and believing God’s Word, we will know His will. Being saturated with the knowledge of God’s will, and growing in spiritual wisdom and understanding will lead us to the place where our involuntary reactions will be godly. At that point, we are pleasing to the Lord.
May God’s grace overwhelm you.
