Time with God - November 25, 2014

Colossians 4:2-4

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.

Pray for and look for opportunities to share God’s word with the people around you!

Do you see what Paul prays that God will open a door for, in his contacts with those who don’t know Christ? He asks for prayer “that God will open up to us a door for the word”. God is reminding you today of the power of His word in a person’s life.

Think of how He has used His word in your own life. Never underestimate the power of God’s word when you share it with someone.

God wants you to ask Him for opportunities to share it with people. As you pray for those opportunities, be sure that you also make yourself available to God for Him to use you in this way when the opportunity does come.

Then keep your Bible handy, because you will probably need it!
