Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 4-16-20

Colossians 4:2-5 TPT A Life of Prayer
2 Be faithful to pray as intercessors who are fully alert and giving thanks to God. 3 And please pray for me, that God will open a door of opportunity for us to preach the revelation of the mystery of Christ, for whose sake I am imprisoned. 4 Pray that I would unfold and reveal fully this mystery, for that is my delightful assignment.

5 Walk in the wisdom of God as you live before the unbelievers,[as you live in the wilderness] and make it your duty [making a full commitment] to make him known.

Do you see today as an opportunity to live in God’s wisdom even in the midst of this pandemic wilderness? Do you live to make Christ the Lord known? God has created us to live our lives by trusting him; he knows the world is watching. In our passage today, the Apostle Paul is seeking to reveal to believers they have everything they need in Christ; he alone is sufficient and will help them live out faith. Therefore, he instructs people to pray. Persistent prayer is a mark of our faith. If the answers are slow in coming, just keep praying and using your faith. God may not answer the way we want him to, but he will definitely answer in a way that is in our best interest. During this time when many people are filled with fear, be a source of Hope and confidence in Christ. Every Christian who has made a full commitment to the Lord knows he or she is an evangelist.

Prayer: Lord, help me to walk in your wisdom before others who need to know you. Help me to make you known. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
