“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 for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11 NIV
These words resonated for me:
“your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” This kind of love is strong and wise. It endures for generations and generations.
“able to discern what is best” Not good. Not good enough. The BEST. Wow. A love that gives me the strength and wisdom to choose the BEST.
“may be pure and blameless” I am made pure and blameless through Jesus. He demonstrated His love in giving His life. We demonstrate our Psalm 5 by giving Him ours.
“filled with the fruit of righteousness” By celebrating the gift of Jesus and giving all the credit for this happiness to Him, I become full of righteousness. I have lots of choices. These words inspire me to choose the best!
Father, You are the very best. The One and Only. The One True God. I choose You.
