“I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope He has given to those he called- his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.” (Eph 1:18 NLT)
The Apostle Paul’s prayer is exactly what I need to hear every day from Jesus, The Great Physician. For you see…fear, insecurity, inordinate yearnings, toxic memories, lethal pride…all conspire with my soul to keep my heart in the dark. But the grace and truth of The Gospel remind me that I am kept in the steadfast love of The Great High Priest Christ, our Shepherd!!!!
This light compels and propels me to take this flood of grace and lavish it over my loved ones, my acquaintances, and even the stranger who knows me not.
I embrace the precious opportunity today to release this overflowing flood of God’s mercy into the dry heart of someone on my pathway. I invite you to do the same.
Redeemed from the ash heap,
