“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” (Ephesians 1: 18, New American Standard Bible)
This sweet prayer is so powerful. It bestows on us the sincere desire that our eyes become open to the true sense of God and of a life in grateful awareness of Him.
This awakening is one which enlightens the eyes, not of sense, but of the heart. It is a clarity and inspiration that is discovered in that deep place of love and of life. For to know God, to really understand what we have with Him and in Him, is to know Love. And to really feel the Love that also guarantees our devotion, means being receptive to it and being ready to love. It is to release the blinders on our hearts—fear, limit, ego, resentment, anger, distrust.
Paul wanted the Ephesians and all of us to feel the great glory of God’s Love within us, to consciously claim that hope and the promise, and so to live that natural and available and rich inheritance which is divine Love realized and expressed.
