“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.” Ephesians 1:17
Does your heart desire to know God better? The deep longing we all have “for more” is the yearning to know God better. We often don’t recognize it. We sometimes think the answer to our yearning is more stuff, more money, a new place to live, a new relationship, a different job, a new challenge.
Ask God today for His Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know Him better.
It’s a gift that God gives willingly to willing recipients.
Pay attention to the restless yearning within you today and turn your eyes and your prayers to God and ask for His Spirit of wisdom and revelation.
Ask for it in your circumstances; in your relationships; in the details of your life so that you may see how God is at work; so you know Him better.
Let Him meet the need of your heart today. Enjoy getting to know Him better.
I thank you that You are willing and able to give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I may know you better right where I walk today. I ask for Your wisdom and revelation. I want to know you better. Thank you for this gift that You impart to those who ask. May I know you today in a way that yesterday I did not. Thank you that You desire to draw us closer to You and to meet the yearnings of our hearts. I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.
