Testimony. . . . .Wednesday. . . .:-)

I was not able to post yesterday b/c Monday night's storm knocked out my internet. Surprise. Surprise. ;-)

However, I do want to share a passage of Scripture that I found very encouraging.

"For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light" (Colossians 1:9-12).

I notice several things in these verses.

#1 The importance of praying for the brethren
#2 How crucial that we be "filled with the knowledge of His will."
#3 Understanding His will helps us walk worthy of the Lord.
#4 We are strengthened by His might, not our own.
#5 His strength empowers us for "patience and longsuffering with JOY."
#6 A reminder of our inheritance
God's Word is so full and so alive. We are so blessed to have access to the Scriptures.
What is His Word teaching you this week???
In the Heart of our Home,
Rebekah
