I am slowly but surely working my way through the New Testament. Sometimes I whiz through a few chapters, other days I never get past one, as I’m busily highlighting, underlining, and journaling out my thoughts. Today was one of those days. I’m telling you, God is pretty amazing and getting to bask in His Word laid out before me is so fulfilling every time. I am always left floored at how such a great God, the Creator of the universe, could give me the privilege of knowing Him and being adopted into His family.
This morning I read Colossians 1, and just look at who God is!
“For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers and authorities–all things were created through Him and For Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Col. 1: 16-17)
He is my Deliver (v. 13) and my Redeemer (v. 14).
My prayer (based on this chapter):
Lord, fill me with the knowledge of your will in all wisdom and understanding. I want to walk in a manner worthy of you, Lord, always pleasing you. I want to bear fruit wherever I am planted and learn more about you everyday. Allow me to be strengthened by your power in order to run with endurance, patience, and joy this race you have set before me. Let me never forget to give thanks to you who have gifted me with a share in your glorious inheritance. Let me continue in the faith, stable and steadfast. Amen.
