Devotions for Colossians 3:12-17, #5

16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Letting the Message dwell with you sounds scary at first thought. But the day-to-day decision to look to God for his wisdom does get easier with practice. And it becomes an enriching thing: God meets you where you are, and although the path we each walk is different, the message is the same for all of us:

We are saved, we are his; He is greater than all our troubles. He is greater than all our worries. He is greater than all our fears.

And the gratitude comes naturally, once this begins to really sink in.

Lord, let your message enrich me as I look to you today.
