Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 14th – Have A Balanced Life

(Go For Knowledge Of God’s Word)

TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 1:10 AMPC
“That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition].”

The Holy Spirit inspired the Apostle Paul to pray the prayer above for the Church, letting us understand God’s will for our lives. He prayed that you’d walk in the way of true righteousness, pleasing God in all that you do, being fruitful and productive, as you mature in the rich experience of knowing Him in His fullness. Hallelujah!

God wants your life to be fruitful in every good work. With this fruitfulness, He wants you to increase in your “epignosis” (full, exact and experiential knowledge) of Him. That’s the balanced life He wants for you!

For some people, when they become very productive with the things they do at home, school, or anywhere else, they don’t have time for God anymore. They hardly even study the Bible or participate in church meetings and activities.

The more they make progress in their social life and school grades, the less time they devote to spiritual things, showing that something is wrong.

The life of the Christian is one of ever-increasing glory and all-around success.
That is, you’re making good progress in your academic work, your loved ones are walking in faith and righteousness, and at the same time, you’re increasing in the knowledge of God.

Oh, how important the knowledge of God is! The Bible says, “Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord” (2 Peter 1:2 NIV).

Do you want more grace in your life and peace multiplied to you? Go for the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ! God doesn’t want you deficient in any area of your life.

In the eleventh verse of Colossians 1, Paul continued in his prayer declaring that you become strengthened with all might, according to God’s glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.

You can be very fruitful, productive, and strong. God wants your life to be balanced, and you can actualise His desire in your life by walking in the knowledge of His Word.
