I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you.
Look around and be aware. But use your heart. How, you ask?
Spiritual awareness is something we can develop. It’s something we should develop. But we are seeing technology taking over our lives like never before. Keeping up with technology advances is hard on our wallets and our calendars. We have to spend money getting the latest gadgets and the latest software, and then we have to spend time learning how to use it. If we cut back on our tech-playtime and spent more time developing our spiritual sensitivity, we’d be better equipped to handle our hectic lives.
We pray things like “God, help me get through this difficult time,” but then we don’t listen to Him.
God hears your prayers. And He wants to help you. But He needs your participation. You have to listen to Him.
God may show you some unusually insightful concepts so that your heart understands things like never before. When you suddenly understand a spiritual truth and say, “I see!”, know that God gave you that revelation so that you would know where you stand with Him. He wants us all to know how precious we are to Him. He wants us to know our place. We’re supposed to be standing with Jesus Christ far above all powers and dominions, but under His rule. With Him in the power of His mighty strength, but under Him who was appointed to be head over everything for the church.
What is your prayer? Share it with Him now.
