In Jesus model prayer, He prays that ‘God’s kingdom come, His will be done’. Many grew up memorizing this prayer. But how does that happen? It happens when we discover that we (His followers) are the embodiment of God’s kingdom on earth. So, when we honor and please the Lord… when we know and understand life through a prism of spiritual wisdom… its then we produce good fruit of every kind (love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness and self control). Now that’s something we can pray for ourselves and one another. I am praying it for you today! Would you pray for me?
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. Colossians 1:9-10 NLT
What spiritual wisdom am I lacking that God could impart to me today? What does the world around me need that God can provide? How am I seeking His spiritual wisdom so that I can live my life in a way pleasing to Him?
God, as this day begins- there are people to love in Your name. Help me do just that. There are problems to solve (I can think of a handful). I am limited, but You are not. Please help me understand what is needed in every way. Work within the people of my church, my friends, family and more. May Your kingdom come in some definitive ways today!
