Ephesians 1:19 – “and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe”
This verse follows Ephesians 1:18 – “I pray that the eyes of your heart will be enlightened”. It is only when the eyes of our hearts are enlightened (opened), that we can fully comprehend just how exceedingly great God’s power towards us really is.
In 2 Kings 6, the prophet Elisha is surrounded by armies, and his servant cries out with fear. Yet Elisha prays for his servant’s eyes to be opened, and then the servant sees that the mountains around are full of horses and chariots of fire. Once he saw that, his fear dissipated!
Whatever the situation, God has more power than you’ll ever need and He’s willing and ready to pour it out. But here’s the catch – it’s given to those who believe! Jesus said “All things are possible for him who believes”.
If you’re full of fear today because of a situation that surrounds you, it’s because you’ve got your natural eyes open and the eyes of your heart closed! Just like Elisha’s servant – when you get the eyes of your heart open, your fear will vanish!
So pray today that the Lord will open the eyes of your heart to his reality, and then begin to behold the exceeding greatness of his power toward you!
