And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more…

"And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God." Philippians 1:9-11 NASB.
My prayer is that your love would abound more and more and that your love for God would grow stronger and stronger. God's love for you is the key on how you can have a happy life, full of love, joy and peace and hope for the future and have the faith to please Him. His love for you is the key on how you can give up destructive sinful habits, and treat others with love and kindness, and to love and forgive yourself. God will help you to gain the knowledge of the important matters in this life and to gain wisdom and discernment, in order to make the right decisions and choices in this life of perplexity and trouble.
This knowledge and wisdom that God will give you, if you love Him and seek after Him with all your heart, will help you to approve the things that are excellent, so that you will be sincere and blameless before Him, as Paul declares above, His peculiar treasure. God wants to fill you with the fruit of righteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ.
How can you be filled with the fruit of righteousness? It’s when you have confessed your sins, given your heart to God, and invited or allowed Him to fill you with His precious Holy Spirit! When this happens, your greatest desire will be to give the praise and glory to God in everything, not only from your lips, but by the way you live and by proclaiming His love to others - to as many as possible. God's great love for you will enable you to have the fruit of righteousness in your life, and helps you to please Him! - He will thus preserve and help you so that when Jesus Christ comes back in the clouds with great glory and power, to take His people home, that you will say, 'This is my God, whom I have waited for! He has come back to save me, just like He said He would.' Then you will not shrink back in fear, because you have been forgiven and washed white as snow, and you have devoted your life to Him, because you love Him!
God's love for you is the key to how you can have these blessings of love, joy, peace, faith, hope, and eternal life forever with Him, in the endless joy and delight that God has promised to all who love Him and all those who would desire His sweet salvation! So humble yourself before God, confess all of your sins, give your heart completely to Him, and receive the joy of your salvation, by receiving His love into your heart, which He has always longed to give you! Then He will put heaven into your heart!This will give you great joy and keep you safe in His love; to help prepare you to receive eternal life, when Jesus returns to take His own to Heaven!
So I pray that your love may abound still more and more, that God would be your all-in-all, and that your joy would be made full! Oh so full! Amen, let it be so!
