Scripture Time

I had 4 extra kids last week (nieces and nephews) so I didn't get around to blogging! Pretty sure Megan's the only reader and she's gone anyways!!!!

Ephesians 1:15-23
15For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18I 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, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Paul is praying for the Ephesians that their faith can grow in understanding. They know Jesus and verse 13 talks about them getting the holy spirit. So in 17-19 he is talking about what he hopes they gain in their spiritual relationship. To me the rest is speaking of God's strength and power. He is in ultimate control.

Father~ Thank you for a new day, for a chance to read your word and try to learn more about you. Help us to gain more knowledge of you and become closer to you just as Paul prayed for the Ephesians to do. Amen
