Ephesians 1:18 NLT
I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope He has given to those He called – His holy people who are His rich and glorious inheritance.
Open your life today to everything that God has in store for you.
In Ephesians 1:18, Paul writes a prayer to the people that the eyes of their hearts will be opened. If your eyes are closed, all you see is darkness. But when your eyes are opened you see the light that is surrounding you. Paul’s prayer is that our hearts will be opened and we will be able to see the light that is available to flood into our hearts. When the eyes of our hearts are opened, we will be able to understand and experience a revelation. We should pray this prayer every day that the eyes of our hearts would be open to receive a new revelation.
Paul specifically talks about a revelation – a confident hope for the ones who are called. Everyone who believes and follows Jesus are the called ones, the ones called out of a lifestyle of sin, called out of following the patterns and systems of the world and called into eternity. All this will sound like ordinary words that don’t paint a picture for you if your eyes are closed.
God calls us His holy people. He does not identify us by our weaknesses and struggles. He identifies us by His strength – Holiness is His strength. He calls us His rich and glorious inheritance. God is constantly thinking about you. He is deeply and passionately in love with you. Jesus died on the cross to purchase us as His inheritance.
Because we are His glorious inheritance, His called people, and because He has given us this confident hope, let’s pray that our hearts would be flooded with His light.
Lord, help our hearts to see, understand and grow in the revelation of who we are and what You have done for us and given us so that the fullness of it would begin to manifest in us, through us and for the glory of God in our generation.
Remain in the confident hope that God calls you His glorious and precious inheritance!
