The Hope To Which We Are Called

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also 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 the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,," (Ephesians 1:17-19 NIV)

I'm asking for this Spirit of wisdom and revelation in my own life lately. God is certainly desiring that I know Him better by placing me solely and completely under His control and power.

I rejoice that I am being refined and shaped as He desires. I rejoice also that through Him and the gift of His Son, I may have hope that all is in His plan.

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful" (Hebrews 10:23 NIV).

"[ By Faith ] Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1 NIV).

Blessings on your journey,

That's a favorite Scripture for me, reminding me that the deeper we go into His Word and by prayers, the closer we get to Him. And there is nothing like being close with Him...Daily. God bless you sister and have a great week!
