“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” Ephesians 1:18-19
At the time of writing this, Paul was confined to a prison cell in Rome, under the constant watch of the Roman guard. But who could possibly tell from his prayer that anything was wrong! Paul’s faithful description of God’s power does not allow even a hint of hopelessness or despair to filter through. Instead he talks of the “glorious inheritance” of a future in Heaven.
:Paul’s eventual hope was not in earthly people, but in Heaven, eternity and God. The eyes of his heart could see clearly. Are the eyes of your heart open?
“Wonderful Redeemer, help me, through Your Holy Spirit, to grasp the wonderful future that You have made possible for me”. Amen.
