“And in this regard we pray for you always, that our God will make you worthy of his calling and fulfill by his power your every desire for goodness and every work of faith, that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Thessalonians 1.11-12
God works in his people. He makes his power accomplish his will in them. Their work depends upon him. God does this to glorify his Son and to glorify his people in him. This was Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians.
What are my desires for goodness? What work of faith have I begun? What prayer have I offered for others like Paul’s?
