Ephesians 1:18-19: “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,and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”
The apostle Paul saw the importance of praying for the opening of spiritual eyes of Ephesians. A shift that occurred when the Old Testament ended and the new one began was tremendous. Unfortunately, a lot of believers in Ephesus did not see that. A lot of believers across the world still do not see it. They read the Book and do not notice that. In fact, the devil has done a superb job by blinding them and instead seeing the truth they see something else there.
It is said very clearly here what Paul prays about. He wants the Ephesians to see the hope, the glorious inheritance and the great power. All of that belongs to the people of God. We have tremendous hope. We know that we are saved and shall not be condemned. We should know that God has prepared wonderful inheritance for us. And we must see that his power works in us.
If our eyes are open to see all of that we will hardly have a single day for discouragement, sadness, hopelessness, worry and anxiety. Let God open our eyes.
