I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so you can understand the wonderful future he has promised to those he called. I want you to realize what a rich and glorious inheritance he has given his people. I pray that you will begin to understand the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe in him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else in this world or the world to come. (Eph 1:18-21 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, when I feel overwhelmed by life’s difficulties, I can lose sight of the security of our relationship and the power, authority, and strength that You have made available to me through it. Teach me how to live in the reality of my relationship with You and to trust more in Your love, power, and promises than I do in the feelings and struggles of this life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
