In This NEW YEAR 2015, we are all anticipating, or praying for growth in every area of our lives, new opportunities, and changes to happen, that didn’t happen in 2014. So, during my quiet time, I felt God leading me to this scripture, that really, applies to all of us. I LOVE how the scripture can be so personal and encouraging at the same time. I pray this blesses you in the next level of opportunities here in 2015.
Colossians 1:9-12 (AMP)
I pray and make [special] request for those reading this post, [asking] that they may be filled with the full (deep and clear) knowledge of your will in all spiritual wisdom [in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things, concerning their lives.
That they may walk (live and conduct themselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to you and desiring to please you in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, [acquaintance, and recognition].
I pray that you may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory, [to exercise] every kind of endurance and patience (perseverance and forbearance) with JOY,
Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified and made us fit to share the portion which is the inheritance, (take part) in everything bright and beautiful that HE has for us.
I pray these things in Jesus name,
