Filled with God's Will
12 March, 2019
God's will is learned through spiritual wisdom, not the minds' of men.
True obedience is not found from the musings of this earth, nor heard in its media.
The apostle Paul prayed that the Colossians would be filled with the knowledge of God's will; not just a mixing, an amalgam of earthly and heavenly thinking, but a complete infilling of only Divine ways.
No human can be filled with his own will and God's will simultaneously.
To be filled with the knowledge of God's will is to:
- live a life worthy of the Lord
- please God in every way
- bear fruit in every good work
- grow in the knowledge of God
- receive His strengthening power, and
- joyfully gives thanks to Him.
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:9-14)
Thus the believer is qualified to share the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. They no longer hold any inheritance in the kingdom of darkness.
