Just A Bit More Help


"Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you might have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light" (Col.1:10-11).

For those who are willing to maintain a steadfast interest in doing the Lord's work by learning more about it, (knowledge) being involved in it, (participation) and bearing fruit (success) as we've learned in the last three devotionals, the apostle Paul shares two more thoughts with us... First he lets us know that we will not be alone in our efforts, and that we'll be strengthened with all power according to his glorious might... The Holy Spirit is within us to help guide our ways. As we continue to work out our salvation, we find that this is true: "For it is God that works in you to will and to act according to his purpose" (Phil.2:13). We can attain the knowledge we need, participate in His work, and achieve success if we allow God to help... There is one more thing that ought to be on our hearts at all times, and it is this... "and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light." We must be ever thankful that God has qualified us to receive the rewards to come when this life is over. We should have the great joy of the Psalmist... "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who has made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations" (100). What a great Psalm to meditate upon today...

Have a wonderful day... Make you little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
