He does not ask God to give them what they do not have, but rather prays that God will reveal to them what they already have. – Warren W. Wiersbe, Bible Exposition Commentary
I loved this quote from my studies on Ephesians this week. We’re in Ephesians 1:15-23, one of the great Pauline prayers from which I can learn much from. My prayers are all-too-often self-centered, and when they are for others it is about their circumstances not their hearts. I ought to pray more like Paul; pray less about their circumstances and more that they (and I) would see more clearly all God has given us through Christ and how that makes a difference in our moments.
What are you studying in the Bible lately? What is God revealing to your heart? Let me know in the comments.
I am heading to North Carolina today where Lara, Abby, and I will be leading a Quench Retreat. So excited. It is always a treat to teach God’s Word and hang out with a bunch of women! (I’m also excited to not have a certain 3-year-old wake me up tonight!)
Have a great weekend, friends!
