Open the Eyes of My Heart

January 2, 2016

 

Ephesians 1:17-19 NET … I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of Him, 18 – since the eyes of your heart have been enlightened – so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what is the wealth of His glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the incomparable greatness of His power toward us who believe, as displayed in the exercise of His immense strength.

Ears to Hear

January 2, 2016

Ephesians 1:15-16 NET … For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you when I remember you in my prayers.

From NetBible Eph 1:15-16

  • because I have heard of your faith & love = Paul’s prayer can be made for his audience because he knows that they are true believers.
  • Faith in the Lord Jesus and love for all the saints = reasons to give thanks=> very similar to Col 1:4

From NetBible Col 1:3-5
NET … We always give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since we heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you have for all the saints. 5 Your faith and love have arisen from the hope laid up for you in heaven, which you have heard about in the message of truth, the gospel …

  • Thus the phrase “Your faith and love have arisen from the hope” is literally “because of the hope(of salvation in Christ).” The perfect tense “have arisen” was chosen in the English to reflect the fact that the recipients of the letter had acquired this hope at conversion in the past, but that it still remains and motivates them to trust in Christ and to love one another.
  • So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. –Ro 10:17
Thank You Father that faith in Christ comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Continue to let this faith in Christ and love for the saints grow. Continue to open ears to hear and follow what Your Spirit is saying.

The Love of Christ

May 1, 2013


.
Ephesians 3:14-19 NIV …  For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds{skies}. How precious is Your loyal love, Your children take refuge{trust} in the shadow of Your wings. –Ps 36:5-7
.

Thank You Lord for Your great love, a love that is wider, longer, higher & deeper than any of us can imagine. A love that gave us Your Son Jesus Christ. Help each of us get a glimpse of this love that surpasses knowledge today & always. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

***

Father, strengthen me in my inner being out of the glorious, boundless riches of Christ! May I know Christ’s truth and wisdom in my inmost heart. -Eph3:16,8;Ps51:6

.

Father, let Christ dwell richly in my heart through faith. May I be rooted deep and grounded securely in Christ’s love. -Eph3:17

.

Father, may I grasp how how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. May I experience this love that is so great I will never fully understand it–that I may be filled up with all the fullness of God. -Eph3:18-19

Because experiencing this love is better than life itself, my lips will praise You! -Ps 63:3

.

Ephesians 3:19 NLT … May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Pure Sincere Hearts

February 5, 2012

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be *sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; being filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. -Phil 1:9-11

*sincere[1506] = found pure when unfolded and examined by the sun’s light, tested as genuine, unspotted

Lord, help us willingly submit our hearts to Your searching and cleansing. Give us sincere, clean hearts that are found pure when unfolded and examined in the light{truth} of the Son, Jesus Christ our LORD. Praise You Lord Jesus that pure hearts are blessed to ‘see’ God(Mt 5:8).
