Weekly Faculty and Staff Devotional from Diana Dukes

Happy Tuesday.
 

Today’s Prayer
 
Lord, Life sure can be a mess sometimes. But over the years, I’ve learned that often during the worst messes of life, you do the most work on me. I have felt your presence and experienced your power in these times of need. Help me to remember that you are in control and to know when to stop trying to do it all and let you step in to do your work. Thank you for your strength and love. In your name I pray, amen.



Three Things
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman

06-24-2013
“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe” (Eph 1:18-19).
Paul’s letter to the Ephesians exhorts believers to experience three important things in their spiritual lives that he experienced personally. As a good mentor, he desires those he is leading to follow his example.
First, God wants you to have the eyes of your heart enlightened in order to know the hope to which He has called you. God has called each of us to a future and a hope. Some do not ever realize the dreams they envision for their lives. Paul prays they will experience this.
Second, God wants you to know there is an inheritance for each believer in Jesus Christ. There are riches to be had – not financial riches – but spiritual riches that are laid up for every saint. As you are faithful to His calling in your life, there will be a reward for your faithfulness.
Third, God desires you to tap into the power that is available to every believer. Paul often exhorted believers not to look at his persuasive words, but the demonstration of the power of God in his life. He wants you to know this same power is available to you. After all, Jesus said we would do even greater works than He did after He sent the Holy Spirit to us.
Pray that God reveals the hope that exists inside of you, be encouraged that there is an inheritance awaiting you, and know that you have power that resides in you that awaits those who exercise their faith to release it.
