Pleasing the Lord
Scripture: Colossians 1:  And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
Observation: I want to live the life worthy of the Lord. I want to have Him look at me and be proud, that I will be able to bring a smile to His face and He would be pleased He created me. I must do good works in glory and honor to Him. I know the gifts and talents He has given me and I need to use them more and draw nearer to Him and be silent so that I can hear His voice.
Application: I need to wake up each morning with an attitude to please God. That includes my thoughts which I have such a hard time to control. Before I take an action I need to think it through and take every opportunity to do a good work in my Lord’s name.
Prayer: Dear Lord it will take your power to make me the man you deserve. Guide me this day to do good works in your name.
