YUPB Daily Inspiration With Rapsody of Realities

Rhapsody Of Realities 
Fruitful And Increasing In The Knowledge Of God .

Wednesday, February 24th .

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:10).

God's will is that you're fruitful in every good work, and while at it, increasing in the knowledge of God. For some Christians, the more they make progress in their job, business, or career, the less time they devote to spiritual things. Their knowledge of God begins to wane, because they're suddenly too busy to go to Church or study God's Word. That should never be your story.
Our opening verse says, "That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God" (Colossians 1:10). God wants you to be fruitful in your job, in your academics, and in every good work. Don't be amongst those who only go to Church when they face challenges; then the moment they receive a miracle and things change, they forget the One who made it possible.
Your commitment to God, His Word, and the Church must be first, and absolute. The lesser is included in the greater; as you commit yourself to the Lord, and His Word, taking your Church attendance and other spiritual activities seriously, you'll certainly be fruitful and productive in other areas of your life. 3 John 1:2 says, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
To prosper means to be fruitful and productive. Here, He deals with both your natural and spiritual wellbeing. As you prosper in your finances, in your health, in your relationships, family, etc., He also wants you to prosper in your knowledge of God. He wants your revelation of Him to keep increasing. That's how His grace and peace are multiplied in your life: "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord" (2 Peter 1:2).
Keep increasing in the knowledge of God by meditating on the Word. The result is that you'll be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, always in blossom, and prospering in everything you do (Psalm 1:3). What a life!
                     PRAYER
Dear Father, your Word is food to my spirit, and by it, I prosper in all things and at all times, bearing fruits unto righteousness. I'm like a tree planted by the rivers of water, always in blossom, and making progress with giant strides, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
              Further Study:
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. ||

|| Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: ||
|| Hebrews 13:20-21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. ||
