Applying God's Word to my life.
Reading: Phillipinas 1:1-15
4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
This tells me to pray for people and have joy praying for them. There are a lot of people I don't like in this world, but if they need my prayer I need to pray for them with joy. I want people out there to know that if you want me to pray for you just say the word. I don't even have to know you, and I will still pray for whatever you want me to pray for.
I need to be more confident that when God created me he began a good work and he will continue to work in my life (even when I mess up) until either I die or Jesus comes again, whichever comes first.
9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God
I need to love learning from the word of God more because when I am studying God's word and loving it I will grow in knowledge of his Word and depth of insight which is another way of saying I will be able to apply what I am reading in God's word to my life and grow spiritually, but it is hard to grow spiritually when I am not reading God's word regularly and applying it to my life. By reading God's word I learn how to be discernful and discern what is the best way to live for God. When I am not reading God's word I am not discernful at all and I end up making foolish decisions, or I don't handle difficult situations gracefully and I end up becoming rude or crude towards people, especially if I have a difficult time getting along with them in the first place.
My prayer: That I will be more consistent in reading God's word daily even if it is just something short.
