Ephesians 1:17, “God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom, and of revelation in the knowledge of him.”
“My people perish because of lack of knowledge” says the Lord.
We live in a world that is changing every day and in order to be on top of things, we need to upgrade ourselves so that we may not lag behind. Likewise, we need to equip ourselves with spiritual power every day so that we may discern and protect ourselves from the evil plans and devises.
The more we are vigilant in the spirit by closing the doors that are not opened by the Lord, the more we open ourselves to the knowledge of the Lord. God’s knowledge comes to fill us with a new identity and renewed strength every day. If we are not aware of our spiritual powers, we will not be able to win battles that originate in the spiritual realm.
Paul was praying that God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, may fill us with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the Lord.
“Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Wisdom comes when we follow His precepts and give God the first priority in our lives. If we are diligent to follow the Lord’s commandment, “Love the Lord with all your mind, body, soul and spirit.” and “Love your neighbour as yourself.” we will gain an entry into the place of wisdom and Godly knowledge.
Let’s pray today, as Paul prayed that the Lord may fill us with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the Lord so that we may stand firm in our new identity to do the works that he has assigned for his praise and glory!
