The Eyes of the Heart

Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 1 (day seven) 
“I pray 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.” (v 18-19)  The Bible says we all have an “inner man”.  See Ephesians 3:16.  It further claims this “person” living inside us has eyes that see and a mind that makes decisions.  Sometimes we are aware of his activity.  Sometimes we aren’t.  So, when Paul prayed that the “eyes of your heart” would be “enlightened”, he was asking God to change the way the Ephesians saw, and where they concentrated their our attention.  He prayed for perception of spiritual realities, for Spiritually corrected vision and the resultant change in their lives and decisions.  “Open my eyes, that I may see visions of truth Thou hast for me”–Clara Scott.  Same prayer.  Our great need, still.
