TOPIC: Goals and Divine Help
"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, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his
holy people, and his incomparably great power for us
who believe. That power is the same as the mighty
strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the
dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly
realms, . . ." - Ephesians 1:19-20.
You need God's help to see that you have tremendous power available to you as you carry out your life's purpose and pursue your goals. What kind of power? It is the same power that God exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and then seated Him at His right hand. Now that's power - power that cannot be stopped and cannot end. Imagine that you have the same Spirit living in you who raised Christ from the dead and then go draw on that same power to achieve great things for God. Do your eyes need to be opened? Are you effectively drawing on the power that is yours in Christ? What can you point to that shows this power at work in your life?
Lord, I am underliving my life, for I have not learned how to make the power in today's passage part of my daily routine. I am sitting on a great generator and I am only drawing on enough juice to run a hot plate! Open my eyes to realize the power and then help me use it that great power to do great things for You.
