The last song I heard on my drive to work this morning was “Be Alright”, which made me search Ephesians. “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 boundless greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places” (Eph 1:18-20).
This passage calls us to remember what we know and trust, not what we see with our limited vision here on earth. He puts a call on our lives; He has a plan to use us for His glory; He has unlimited riches of glory and an abounding greatness of His power to use in and through our lives for the good of others, that will glorify Him. If you are a child of God, and this isn’t where you see yourself today, I encourage you to meditate on this passage and ask the Lord to show you His truth.
Perhaps singing along with this song will help.
But my circumstances say I won’t last through the night
I need Your word to hold me now, need You to pull me through
I need a miracle, a breakthrough, I need You
But my world’s falling apart like it is made of sand
Am I small enough to slip through the cracks?
Can You take my broken pieces and put them back?
Open my eyes to see You working in my life
Let the past remind me You never fail
Tell my soul “It is well” (oh)
