Don King’s November 2 Devotional
…the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may 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 exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power. Ephesians:18-19 NKJV
We should all pray and seek to know and understand our faith better. We are, after all, Believers. We should know what is the “hope of His calling” and “”the riches of the glory of His inheritance”. We need to understand “what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe”. Don’t you think?
The Apostle Paul is writing to the Ephesians that he prays for them to have “the eyes of your understanding be enlightened…” or opened. It is obvious that to do so requires study and explanation. Regular church attendance where you can be taught the Word of God is essential. Regular Bible study is a must. Reading books on a variety of Biblical teachings helps as well. We should be students of the Word of God, not simply believers.
Think about the words Paul chooses to communicate why we should be diligent to learn: “that you may know…what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.” Exceeding greatness…mighty power… I want some of that!!
