Colossians 1:9-11 says, we always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding his Spirit gives. Then you will live a life that honors the Lord, and you will always please him by doing good deeds. You will come to know God even better. His glorious power will make you patient and strong enough to endure anything, and you will be truly happy.
Paul prays that:
God will show the believers what he wants them to do
God's Holy Spirit will give them wisdom and understanding
They will live a life that honours God and do Good deeds
They will know God better
God's power will make them patient and strong
They can endure anything
They will be truly happy.
Biblical happiness comes from all of these things. We can't do anything in our own strength to make ourselves happy - it comes from knowing God, and doing what he wants through the power of the Holy Spirit.
