Eph. 1:17: “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you.”
This is a letter from Paul to a church, to a group of people he cares about, to a group of people he wants to see grow in their faith. I love this prayer because it shows the process for a fulfilling walk with God. If you need a “how-to” video, this prayer is for you!
When we read our Bibles, listen to teachings, attend Bible studies, fellowship with our friends, and attend church, we obtain wisdom. And, as Oprah says, when you know better, you do better.
Wisdom opens the doors for us to understand the truth of who God is. His promises for us are revealed.
Our lives are affected, we are different when our hearts of full of truth. When we walk in that truth, it changes our perspective. The eyes of our heart are enlightened…and when our hearts see through the lenses of truth, we see HOPE. There’s hope for the difficult situation you are facing right now, there’s hope for your children, there’s hope for today, and there’s always hope for tomorrow.
When our hearts are full of truth, We know who we are and where we are going.
And even if you are struggling just getting through this day, know that each and every day:
YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING AND YOU’RE HEADED HOME.
