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.
