Scripture for the week of May 10, 2020
I pray … that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe… Ephesians 1:17-19 (NASB)
Are you in need of wisdom to solve a baffling situation or new revelation to grasp something beyond your understanding? Do you need renewed hope to see beyond impossible mountains too difficult to overcome? Wisdom requires discernment sometimes beyond our awareness, revelation can breakthrough as a dawning truth and hope is the anticipation of a fulfilled need or desire. This scripture encourages us to pray with the anticipation that our Heavenly Father can extend to us His spirit of wisdom and revelation for a greater knowing of our Lord Jesus Christ. We can also expect to “see” a lightening in our hearts to KNOW the hope of His calling. As His chosen ones, there is an awesome greatness of His power toward us who believe in the Lord; and there is a wealth of glory that is His inheritance in us! May you know the abundant magnitude of His wisdom, power, and extravagant love for you! Amen!
