Ephesians 1: 18
“I pray 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 his holy people,”
“The Spirit is God’s guarantee that He will give us the inheritance He promised. And that He has purchased us to be His own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify Him. Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly asking God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grown in your knowledge of God. 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. Ephesians 1: 14 – 18
We are chosen! God chooses each one of us and desires for us to be on His winning team in the game of Life. What an awesome call to be asked to join the royal ranks by the King of Kings. He’s the divine manager and the coach of the team, calling us into play. Calling us into account and into the fullness and accurate knowledge and understanding of how to play the game. His desire is to equip, train and teach us all the elements of winning and all the mysteries surrounding success in life, meshed with His plan of salvation, redemption and the knowledge of His will for us. Sadly though, It’s easy to miss His divine call, when the opposing team, the enemy, is also choosing his members, beckoning us with sly trickery, lies and deceit, leading us on with promises that, in the end will produce no results but losses. God continues to call each one of us but it’s our decision to choose which team we wish to give our heart and soul to.
What a spiritual blessing is ours, to be predestined by God into His family, because it was His “pleasure” to choose us. Eph. 1:5 Wow! Why then, should
we ever think we’re of no value? He has CHOSEN “us” then, and has lavished His wisdom and insight upon “us” so that we may begin to understand the mystery of His gift of salvation and redemption, His will and His doctrines.
“God desires that “I, (your name inserted here) ” understand and have accurate knowledge of the Truth and the mysterious spiritual connection between Him and I so that I will keep growing in my knowledge of Him and maturing in my faith until the end.”
Have you heard your call? Oh, that we will be faithful to such a high calling of ever learning, discerning and maturing in the Spiritual realm for the glory of God. Haven’t heard your call? Listen for it? He calls now. Don’t make excuses. Join the winning team becoming joint heirs with Christ in anticipation of His return, while living in the fullness of Christ and all of God’s promised blessing. Christ is victorious!! It’s a win/win situation!
