This topic defines three revelatory mysteries in God for the new creation. Each mystery reveals a different version of God's will and purpose for every born again Christian, but all of them highlights our divine calling and inheritance in Christ.

Reference: Ephesians 1:18-19 New Century Version (NCV) "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 his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength."

Paul prayed for enlightenment. Enlightenment grants deeper meaning and insight into divine mysteries. It deepens our knowledge and understanding about any subject in spiritual matters. It is the Kingdom factor that sheds light on our hearts to know what Christ has done for us and the immeasurable resources and glorious riches God has made available in Christ.

Enlightenment liberates us from ignorance of purpose and creates divine awareness and Paul knew this. So He knew the exact prayer point to pray for the Ephesian Christians. He diagnosed their spiritual condition and recognised that their eyes of understanding needed to be enlightened to know what God has called them to take part in, partake of, or experience in Christ.

When the eyes of our heart pop open, it means that they've been illuminated. Once light is shed on them, it will instruct our understanding. Simply put, enlightening the eyes of our understanding enables us to comprehend eternal truths or realities with all assurance. Spiritual enlightenment reveals the ultimate goal of God's plan for the saved. This is why Paul's prayer goes like this: "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know..."

When your eyes of understanding is flooded with light, you'll just know. The mystery of this enlightenment announces the hope of God's calling, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of His power for us who believe. In other words, it deals with our divine needs, unveils the depth of God's purpose and the surpassing worth of knowing Christ. Stay tuned for part two of this topic. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - 1 Corinthians 7:17; Philippians 3:14; Ephesians 4:1; Colossians 1:10.
