Listen to this beautiful message from the Apostle Paul in Ephesians. It is an encouraging message of Hope and Power. Listen. Absorb. Embrace.
I PRAY ALSO 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 THE SAINTS, AND HIS INCOMPARABLE GREAT POWER FOR US WHO BELIEVE. THAT POWER IS LIKE THE WORKING OF HIS MIGHTY STRENGTH, WHICH HE EXERTED IN CHRIST WHEN HE RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD AND SEATED HIM AT HIS RIGHT HAND IN THE HEAVENLY REALMS, FAR ABOVE ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY, POWER AND DOMINION, AND EVERY TITLE THAT CAN BE GIVEN, NOT ONLY IN THE PRESENT AGE BUT ALSO IN THE ONE TO COME
Beautiful One, may the eyes of your heart be opened in order that you may know MY HOPE I have for your life—HOPE to get up from where you have been lying…HOPE to do what you have been putting off for so long…HOPE to conquer, to overcome, and to achieve.
May the eyes of your heart be opened, so you may know MY INCOMPARABLE GREAT POWER that is available to you…if you believe. Understand that MY POWER is the working of MY MIGHTY STRENGTH in anything that is keeping you down and dead…in anything that is causing you to fail…in anything that is hindering you from being the person you were meant to be, created in My Image. Get up, Child, and take hold of MY HOPE and MY POWER. It is for YOU! Let it be IN you!
Did you know that God has called you to HIS HOPE? For what or whom in your life do you need this HOPE? Is it for something in your past, something in your future, or something or someone right now? Ask God to open the eyes of your heart to see HIS HOPE that is available to you, so you may overcome, conquer, and achieve.
Did you know that God has called you to HIS INCOMPARABLE GREAT POWER? For what or whom do you need this POWER? Is it your faith? Is it your love? Is it your health, or your desire to live? Ask God to open the eyes of your heart to see HIS INCOMPARABLE GREAT POWER that is available to you, so you may become the person you were meant to be.
PRAYER: Enlighten the eyes of my heart, Father, that I may know the HOPE to which You are calling me and Your INCOMPARABLE GREAT POWER You have available to me. Let me start living in this HOPE and POWER, so I may be the person I was meant to be.
Maintain an Awareness
So, yes, the deepest urge in human nature seems to be the desire to be important–to matter. But, it is not the PRINCIPLE of wanting to be important that is wrong; instead, it is the way we adapt or the means we adopt to meet this most urgent desire of our hearts.
