Enlightened eyes of the heart!

Scripture reading for June 7th: Ephesians 1, Psalm 113, Proverbs 20

Ephesians 1: 15-20 “For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and you great love for all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, what are the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power towards us who believe, according to the working of His great might that He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, . .”

All true wisdom and understanding comes from God Himself Who alone is the Truth. Inner understanding requires God’s Truth to bring light to the darkness in our souls because of sin. He must heal our inner blindness through revelation. Paul declares that God has done that through the Gift of the Holy Spirit from God. The Holy Spirit brings conviction of sins and leads us to repentance and new birth. The Holy Spirit reveals our future hope and our inheritance as adopted children of God. The Holy Spirit empowers us to understand the grace we received through Jesus Christ, God’s Son, through His crucifixion for our sins and resurrection for our justification. Praise the Lord for our Amazing Savior!

Psalm 113: 2-4 “Blessed be the Name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the Name of the Lord is to be praised! The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens!

Prayer: Father God, thank You for enlightening my inner eyes with Your Holy Spirit! Thank You for revealing Your plan of salvation and adoption through the crucifixion and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ! Fill me afresh with the Holy Spirit and power to share the Good News of Your wisdom and love for all sinners and those in darkness. I will praise You now and forever! Amen!

Proverbs 20:12 “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both.”
