Abounding

Philippians 1:9 (NKJV)
9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,

Abounding in His love leads you to becoming all you need to become. When we love Jesus we listen, obey, and grow in His love. Jesus being the Teacher has so much to show us. When we go to listen, we need to pray first that the Holy Spirit will guide us as we listen. He will guide us in seeing the teaching, the direction, and the knowledge God has for us. God will guide what we learn in His timing and how much we can handle at one time. Also, he will at times teach in progression where a little each day adds up to information all put together with a purpose. God wants us to grow in his knowledge and His love. When we do this, we will in turn learn to discern.

As we discern we will know what is right and wrong. We will make decisions on what is of God and would glorify Him. We will see potential sin areas and learn to avoid them. We will learn how to encourage with the right manner. We will know how to express His love as His love flows through us.

As we abound in His love we will— Live to Love and in turn Love to Live. We will learn of His love, grow in His love, and learn how to share His love. It all starts when you accept His love and abound in His love.

Father, Thank You for Your love and all that You desire to show me. Thank You for Your teaching in Your perfect timing. In Your Loving Son’s Name we pray, Amen.
