I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. (Eph 1:17-19)
Who in your life needs encouragement to see themselves as God sees them?
Which of the concepts in this verse appeals to your soul most – wisdom and revelation to know God better; enlightenment to know the hope to which God has called you; the riches of his glorious inheritance; or God’s incomparably great power at your disposal?
Oh, Father, my heart longs for you. I want to know you better every single moment of every day. Please give me wisdom and revelation of who you are and how you love. Please give me power when I am weak and incapable of overcoming obstacles. Please enlighten my heart with the hope to which you have called me. And bring to mind someone in my life who needs encouragement so I can share your word.
