This week's teaching devotional:
These prayers by Apostle Paul contain the keys to a future of victory and fulfilment in any Christian"s life. I personally recommend them to all who care to read this. Pray them daily for at least one month. Someone else recommends it be prayed daily for 6 months. I have just used the amplified translation to write out the prayers. Make it personal and you can use it to pray for others too! For eyes to be enlightened, to know the hope to which we are called and the inheritance we have in God and God has in us and the greatness of the power at work towards us who believe. Wow!
[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set- apart ones), And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places], Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come. And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].
For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name]. May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God"s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! Be filled with all the fullness of God!
May you function at levels higher than you have ever functioned before as you move up into more of revelation in the knowledge of God and be filled with His fullness. Amen!
Dearly beloved; This is to encourage you in your walk with God. My recent studies are showing how much of God"s grace has been made available to us in this season. I am sending you a condensed form of the teachings. I pray you will take time out to look into the subject of grace.
God"s grace is the energy of God at work in us humans, bringing us to terms with God"s plans and purposes in the earth. It starts with a saving grace to get us into salvation brought about by Jesus" work on the cross. On our journey into the purposes of God, which will end up in the very presence of God at the Throne of Grace, we need grace all the way. In the book of Titus we are told that the grace that brought salvation has appeared to us teaching us to deny… Grace teaches us how to live in this ungodly world. (Titus 2:11). Grace has a process involved in it and is visible. As can be seen in the book of Acts 11:23, Barnabas saw the outworking of grace on the lives of the people of God in Antioch. Grace comes from the love heart of God. The book of Ephesians chapter 1, like many chapters from the pen of Apostle Paul, starts with the grace greetings. Grace and peace comes from the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our redemption, forgiveness of sin and all spiritual blessings come from the Grace of God. Our love for God and desire to stay humble before God are the prerequisites to receiving more grace. We have access to all grace by faith in Christ Jesus. All of God"s purposes can only be fulfilled when we yield to His grace to effectually work in us. No wonder Jesus the child grew and the grace of God was on him. Apostle Peter encourages us to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Wisdom Key: Our love for God and desire to stay humble before God are the prerequisites to receiving more grace.
Memory Verse: "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works." Titus 2:11-14
Life Application: How can we access the grace of God?
