- #1--"so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord". This means that we look like Jesus and that we act like Jesus.
- #2--"to please Him in all respects". God is pleased when we stay in the boat in the middle of the river of our destiny.
- #3--"bearing fruit in every good work". I love the fact that the promise of prayer is that we will "bear fruit in every good work". What about the bad works? They are buried in the bottom of the sea--they will not bear fruit! Hallelujah!
- #4--"increasing in the knowledge of God". The more we follow God--the more we understand God and His ways.
- #5--"strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might". This is literally, "empowered with power from His power"! God empowers His people to do the work that Jesus did--and the work that He desire to continue to do through His church.
- #6--"attaining of all steadfastness and patience". Most of us will not reach our destination overnight--it's a process of waiting and enduring.
- #7--"joyously giving thanks to the Father". Pray with thanksgiving giving God thanks for all that you see Him doing each day.
