I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom[f] and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 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.[g]
19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. ~ Ephesians 1:16-21
Two very important things here. first, that we can understand and have confidence the incredible rich and GLORIOUS inheritance that is offered to EVERYONE in this world. and secondly, that we will understand the incredible GREATNESS of God’s power for us!! This is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. I don’t know about you but I have never ever in all of my life heard of, met anyone or read about anyone who has the power to raise the dead!!
Jesus is ABOVE any ruler or any authority in this world!! What do you have to fear? If you understand this how could you NOT walk in confidence and JOY? Once you “get it” start praying for other’s to “get it” – your family and your friends, your co-workers and your school mates, your neighbors and the guy who takes your money at the gas station, your dr’s and to cop who writes you a ticket….. are you getting it? Pray this for EVERYONE!!!
Now go out and have an EPIC day today!
