A Daily Devotion for Monday, June 13
Philippians 1: 9-11
And this is my prayer; that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ- to the glory and praise of God.
These verses don’t so much instruct us as encourage us to keep learning, keep walking toward God. Along the way, in our relationship with Him, we will learn and gather wisdom. I am understanding discernment to be a sort of by-product of my relationship with God. I can never pretend or even hope to understand God’s will, but God’s will for me does seem clearer as I improve my relationship with Him.
Holy One, I am thankful for your willingness to grant us wisdom. We long to understand you, to be fully in relationship with you. Amen
