Journey Through Ephesians, #4
Sometimes it can be difficult to imagine that God truly is over all things. Read Ephesians 1:18-23.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about 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 every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things in subjection 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 1:18-23 NASB
As Paul continues to pray for the people, he now turns his prayers to hoping that they will be able to see and truly understand who God is. He wants them to know the magnitude of God. The amazing, over-arching breath of all that God is and can do. That is his hope and prayer for the people.
When we think about God, do we recognize just how truly awesome he is? Do we strive to see him more clearly for who he is every day? As we have a better understanding of who God is, we will more clearly understand who we are.
