Ephesians 1:15-23 NLT
15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 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.
19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
Paul prayed for the Ephesians, asking God to give spiritual wisdom and insight, for the purpose growing in their knowledge of God. Whatever it is we think we know to be true of God, He is so much more, His ways are not our ways, nor are His thoughts our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). He is greater, higher, more worthy of all praise, than anyone, at any time, in human history. So, pray to grow in our knowledge of Him. Pray for our hearts to be flooded with light so we can understand the hope He has given to His holy people.
Let’s agree with Paul and pray
Lord God, You are so great, merciful and mighty. Thank You for everything Lord, this day, time, breath, this very second….every single thing that can be named we give You thanks for. Father, today we ask for spiritual wisdom and insight so that we can grow in our knowledge of You. Oh Lord, indeed, that we would understand the greatness of Your power, that lives in us! The power that rose Christ from the grave lives in us! Thank You Lord for Your great power. Oh, that we would understand. Open our eyes Father, lead us in the way everlasting, for we put our hope and trust in You. It is in Jesus’ name we pray, the One who is seated at Your right side in the heavenly realms, the One who is above any ruler, authority, power, leader or anything else not only in this world but also in the world to come! Amen.
Oh how I love Jesus. Just speak His name, receive His power and promises. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Jesus over fear and rebellion. Jesus over temptation. Jesus over disease, sickness and death. Jesus over finances. Jesus over dysfunction. Jesus over divorce. Jesus whose name is above every name. Speak the name of Jesus. Listen and be set free today. Such power! Jesus over alcoholism. Jesus over pornography or any other addiction. JESUS help me! Receive His power today! Whom the Son has set free is free indeed! Walk in the fullness of His power!
John 1:12 KJV But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name
