What a great reminder as we start to our Monday..
I PRAY THAT EYES OF YOUR HEART MAY BE ENLIGHTENED IN ORDER THAT YOU MAY KNOW THE HOPE TO WHICH HE HAS CALLED YOU...
THE EYES OF OUR HEART... WOW
Paul is sharing that our heart is more than the blood pumping organ in our chest... we know as Christians our heart is more than flesh and bones!!! There is a spiritual discerning through and beyond natural reasoning...
The way the apostle Paul puts it is that you must have “the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know” (Ephesians 1:18). This too is strange — the heart has eyes! But perhaps not beyond comprehension.
Most people are at home speaking of “the heart” as something more than the blood-pumping organ in our chest. Such language is not foreign to us. This “heart” is the real us. Intuitively we know that there is more to us than flesh and bones. We know we are not mere chemicals in a sack of skin. We would not talk the way we do about things like justice and love if we didn’t believe that.
Eyes of the Heart
Is it so strange, then, to add to this immaterial personhood the idea of immaterial eyes — “the eyes of the heart”? This inner person, who is the real us, sees and knows things that are not identical with what the eyes of the body can see. Pascal said, “The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know. We feel it in a thousand things” (Pensées). There is a spiritual seeing through and beyond natural seeing. There is a spiritual hearing through and beyond natural hearing. There is spiritual discerning through and beyond natural reasoning.
So our eyes can be opened
"THE RICHES OF HIS GLORIOUS INHERITANCE IN HIS HOLY PEOPLE, AND HIS INCOMPARABLY GREAT POWER FOR US WHO BELIEVE."
WOW... the verse before in Eph 1:17 reminds us God gives us a spirit of revelation...
This means we have God's Power... through Christ's resurrection!
We have been called by Him to receive the wealth of HIs inheritance. Can we comprehend these words??? Can we understand the full depth of this!!!
Our inheritance isn't just eternal life , but is also the subordinate power and authority that we have through Jesus!!! WOW WOW WOW!
Paul is praying for us to understand this and walk in this power!!
I pray my friends that we realize the truth of this scripture and all scripture and we walk in His power today and every day... that our hearts are led by the Holy SPirit and we walk in that spirit today by filling ourselves up with HIs word, His music, Prayer and time with Him and sharing with other believers.
Have a blessed and Magnificent Monday and please share how God has opened the eyes of your heart!
I end with this amazing song and yes I pray you sing this and live this!
