I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the mighty working of his strength.
Ephesians 1:17-19 (CSB)
We can’t know God without God’s intervention. We can study the Scriptures as thoroughly as the Pharisees had done and yet still miss the message of the gospel. We can attend church faithfully for all our lives and not experience Him. It is only by grace and by the Holy Spirit’s revelation that we can know Him, understand the riches of His wisdom, the hope we have in Him, and the power of His strength.
Though our God is mysterious and unfathomable, He wants to be known by us, and it’s through His Word, through community, and most importantly through His Spirit, who lives in us, that He will make Himself known.
If you’re feeling far or blocked from Him, ask for the Spirit to give you wisdom to understand. Then have eyes to see and ears to hear what He shows you.

For years I was one of those who attended church. I did youth choir, youth group, hand bells, etc. But never truly knew God. Didn’t know about having a relationship with him. It wasn’t till years later after I got married that I heard about a relationship with God. Then it took a huge trial to get the information from my head to my heart. Now I pray dangerous prayers like God search me, break me & send me. Also at times pray to Abba Father. I feel like he’s a daddy to us all & will hear our prayers. God surely works in mysterious & unfathomable ways. He parted the Red Sea so Jews could walk on dry ground. He also had Gideon & 300 men defeated the Midianites with just trumpets, jars & lanterns. Take time during this lock down & get to know the God of the universe. He’s waiting to converse with you & show you His love.

Thanks..something told me to read this today. I have been feeling distanced from God since I’m a 1st time mom.
Requesting for God’s wisdom as we bring him up. Thankfully He is always listening at the other end
Hey There, I had my first son when I was age 30 & he has been a blessing from God. He was a missionary for 15 years in Africa & is currently youth pastor at their church. I pray you keep your son before the Lord always. I was scared having a new baby; but God has always been there. God bless!

I’m spending 5 days in a lovely cottage at the beach as a personal and business retreat. Saturday was the one year anniversary of my mother’s home going. I have felt like an orphan for the past year. God is showing me that I haven’t been an orphan since I accepted Him! He never leaves me but I sometimes (read often) run to him with requests and petitions and then hurry away without listening to His voice and seeing His work in my life. Thank you for this encouragement. It truly was a God wink.
