Verse of the Day – Ephesians 1:17-20

I pray … that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know … [God’s] incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead…

Ephesians 1:17-20

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

I believe in the promises of the Spirit’s power “to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” I have experienced this resurrection power through the Spirit’s work, enabling ministry through me, helping me love others in challenging situations, comforting me when I’m broken, giving me insight when I study the Word, and strengthening me in the face of temptation. I am humbled, thrilled, and left longing for more when I experience the Spirit’s work in those ways. I want others I love to experience this tremendous power who have not. I know that Paul’s process was to pray for people to experience this power and let them know he prayed for them. So, that is what I do. I invite you to join me as we pray, thousands worldwide. Let’s pray for God to enable those closest to us who believe to discover this power and do great things through the Holy Spirit working in and through them.

My Prayer…

Loving God, Almighty Father, please empower me today to live for you and your glory through the power of the Holy Spirit. Please bless those in your family so they can experience the Spirit’s work in their lives and through their ministry to others. May we experience the power you used to tear away the power of death that holds us captive to sin, death, and Satan. May we experience the Spirit’s transforming power and use it to glorify and bless others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
