For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. (NIV) Colossians 1:9
What does it mean to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will? The word “filled” means to be “made full.” In the book of Colossians the word carries the idea of being “fully equipped.” According to Colossians 1:9 the knowledge of God’s will is found in “spiritual wisdom and understanding.” Knowing God’s will isn’t something that we magically dream up. It comes from knowing the God of the Word through the Word of God.
Does it seem like at times that you’re out of step with God? Do you have an important decision to make? Do you need to know God’s will?
The first step towards being filled with the knowledge of God’s will is to know the Word of God! Will you join me today by digging deeper into His Word to know His will?
