“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.” Ephesians 1:17 (NIV)
Yesterday our verse was from the words of a prayer which the apostle Paul said he was praying for the Christians at Ephesus. Today we look at a few more words of that prayer. Paul was anxious that his Ephesian friends would grow in their knowledge of God. He said that he kept asking for this. He didn’t pray this prayer just once or just once in a while, He kept on praying over and over again that they would know God better. And why would this be a prayer to be prayed over and over? It is because our God is so great and because there is so much to learn about Him. Yes, you and I need to keep learning to know our God in heaven. This can be our prayer today. Let us be open for Him to teach us more so that we may know Him better. Let us apply our verse to ourselves and ask God to give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation.
