The Art of Being Watchful

The Art of Being Watchful

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” (Colossians 4:2). Much is spoken of in Scripture about the power of being watchful. Notice the progression of this verse: devoting ourselves to prayer, being watchful and being thankful. This is a powerful recipe for healthy living. I believe that if we are prayerful, watchful and thankful we will likely have very abundant lives. Have you spent time in prayer today? Are you being watchful and thankful? This will be an antidote to many of your problems.
