PRAY FOR CONVICTION
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, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
In the second century B.C. came the compass, now we have GPS. people today get in their cars and obey the directions of their GPS. With both the compass and the GPS, one thing is required conviction.
The same is true spiritually. In order to navigate through life's difficult passages, we must grow in conviction that God is in control. We must believe that the directions He gives will lead to our destination. Paul prayed as much for the Ephesians--that the eyes of their hearts would be enlightened. He wanted them to know more and more of God's calling, the riches of the inheritance God prepared for them, and of His great power toward them. We don't get all of that the day we believe. We must grow in our spiritual conviction.
Pray the same for yourself today. Pray God would enlighten the eyes of your heart to see God more fully and clearly.
Day by day, day by day, O dear Lord, three things we pray: to see You more clearly, love You more dearly, follow You more nearly, day by day.
