9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;
12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
1. Know God’s will. There are 2 aspects to His will: His universal will and His personal will. That personal will includes wisdom and understanding.
2. Do God’s will. This just means walking the talk.
3. Use the right resources. Operate in God’s power, not your own.
4. Have the right attitude–one of joy and thanksgiving.
