This afternoon I was spending some time with the Lord and I wanted to go back and read Philippians 4:8, a passage I have recently memorized to fight temptation. Well, I accidentally turned to Colossians 4 and started reading from the top. I didn't realize I had the wrong book until I got to verse 8 and thought, "That's not what I memorized!" But I decided to read on. Maybe God had something for me.
Boy did he.
My gem for the day came in Colossians 4:12. It says, "Epaphras is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured." I needed to hear that today because I so much want to stand firm in the center of God's will for my life. I want to be mature and fully assured that all my decisions are pleasing to God.
That being said, I'm reminded of the importance of having people "wrestle" for me in prayer. So, if you don't mind, do more than throw up a prayer for me and Em...wrestle in prayer for us. We need it:) Pray that we would stand firm in His will.
