Enlightened

ENGLISH

Having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints—Ephesians 1:18

Sometimes, it's hard to describe a supernatural process therefore we use natural metaphors. In this case, Paul says our "hearts have eyes"—yet we all know our natural hearts do not have natural eyes. Now our natural extremities do play a small role in the process. But as Jesus said, we can still "see [naturally] without seeing [spiritually]." This means that Paul wants us to look beyond the natural, to something we miss spiritually—hope and riches. And it's a glorious sight. It's glorious! Today stop fretting, fearing, and being frightened. Join me in seeing something different than the present natural reality. Hope in something that's more real and more than natural.

ASK THIS: What's preventing you from seeing a spiritual reality? 

DO THIS: Confess this to God.

PRAY THIS: God, open the eyes of my spiritual heart—let me see your glory.

PLAY THIS: Paul Baloche: Open The Eyes Of My Heart.
