The Eyes of Your Heart
The Eyes of Your Heart
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 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. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Ephesians 1:17-23
You may have heard the song, “Open the eyes of my heart Lord, open the eyes of my heart, I want to see you, I want to see you.”
What is the “eyes of the heart”? What if the eyes of the heart is your mind? The way you think can give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so you can know HIM better. The eyes of your mind can be the door to your heart, and hope is the anchor to your soul.
If the eyes of your heart are enlightened, then you will know these three things:
- The HOPE for which God has called you
- The riches of HIS glorious inheritance in HIS holy people
- The great power for the believer
Lord I seek you today. I desire to know you with all my heart. I want my mind renewed and refreshed by the cleansing of your Word. I want your wisdom and revelation knowledge. Fill me with your Spirit. Give me everything which is available to me. May your righteousness permeate all my ways today. I surrender all to you. Change me any way you want to change me. I exalt you Lord. You are worthy of all praise. You have redeemed me, healed me and forgiven me of all my unrighteousness. Your word is life and healing to my soul. Protect my eyes and ears from the darkness of this world. Thank you Lord.
