Daily Office Readings for Tuesday of the 1st Week of Epiphany: Year 1
“I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power.” (Ephesians 2:17 to 19)
I ponder these words of Paul as he writes to the Church in Ephesus. He is also writing to us today. To have a spirit of wisdom and revelation from God is the most blessed gift any human could ever receive. With the “eyes or our hearts enlightened,” we will see our course in life more clearly. I know that this is true for me.
I am on a journey now to go back to school and focus on young childhood education. This new course in my life came to me as it was revealed through both close friends, and even store counter clerks. This is the way God drops hints of revelation.
How do you see a new course in your life? It could be shifting in direction for you. Are you listening to what different people bring to you? Are you looking with the eyes of your heart? Are you listening with the ears of your heart? God is still giving us the spirit of wisdom and revelation as we come to know God, so that, with the eyes of our hearts enlightened, we may know what is the hope, to which God is calling us.
Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to, and through, the saints of God, and then ponder anew what the Almighty can do. John
