The Timely Prayer

“[I pray] 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 toward 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, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” – Ephesians 1:17-23 ESV

Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians is timely for us today. In the weight of all we’re living in, it can become easy to lose focus. But, oh, to have the spirit of wisdom and revelation enlighten the eyes of our hearts to the glorious hope that’s ours through Christ

Jesus! Jesus. Lord. Messiah. Now King.

He’s seated above all else—including pandemics, deceptions, and every influence in this world.

Above. Glorified. Exalted.

The hope of all that we’ve been given access to by grace exceeds anything this world could possibly offer or take away. Yep, it really is amazing grace!

When the weight of it all feels too heavy, let it go! Fix your eyes, and live in the fullness of hope, life, and freedom found in Jesus by grace.
