“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.  I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:17-18)

Do you read the words and see the message?  We have not yet received what is ours, or should I say, the promise of what will be.  We have been given the power to become children of God.  As children, we will inherit eternal life.  These are the promises that belong to those who follow Christ.  Come then, as one who lives in the hope of promise, and be enlightened in the truth of the Lord.

You have given all good things necessary so that those who believe may know their portion in You, Lord.  Guide me this day in the way of truth so that I will not wander around searching for whatever I may hope to find, when I already have the inheritance promised which all of us are searching for.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of living that prepares me in the hope You give to live into the life You promise.

Lord Jesus, You have paved the way and paid the toll so that all who follow You may walk the narrow road of promise which leads to life eternal.  Guide me in the way of truth so that I would not be as one who is searching, or as one who has no hope.  Guide me in the salvation way to live this day and every day You give me, in the truth You have revealed once for all.  Help me always follow You in all of Your ways.  Amen.
