She Reads Truth: Ephesians : Day 2
Ephesians 1:15-23 | “The eyes of your heart opened.”
It’s a crazy thing to have your eyes opened to something. It’s a crazy wonderful thing when the eyes of your heart are opened to a truth that is life changing. I don’t think Paul would have prayed that our Father would give us a spirit of revelation or wisdom in the knowledge of Him for such wondrous things – if they were super easy to see as we went about our day to day life.
So what does he want us to see?
The hope He has called us to.
The riches of His glorious inheritance, the saints.
The immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe.
And all of these things are possible because of the resurrecting, saving power that our Father worked in Christ and because He’s put all of us – safely and lovingly, beneath the feet of His Savior Son who sits at His right hand.
Father, open the eyes of our heart. Give us a spirit of revelation and wisdom in the knowledge of You alone, for Your glory alone.
What do you REALLY hope for? In the quiet recesses of your desires, in the loud screaming thoughts of want. What is it you want and yearn after? Is it Jesus?
Do you realize how truly wealthy you are as a daughter of a risen King? To be a set aside as a saint (someone who will go to heaven) and be promised an inheritance there AND ALSO to have an inheritance now as a saint in other saints, the body of Christ. Community.
Let’s not let human words trip over holy ideas. Father, help us to dwell on what it looks like for us to worship a God with immeasurable greatness and power that works all things together for the good of those who love Him.
