“[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him” Ephesians 1:17, Amplified.
It is what we consistently do that shows a spirit’s control in our lives. If you lie once, the enemy tempted you and you fell into his trap once, prayerfully never to fall into that same trap again. But to lie on a regular basis indicates a spirit of lying and deceit that has taken control. This is the enemy’s goal and this is when deliverance is needed in order for us to be free.
God wants our lives to be governed by Him, to where we’re not only operating in wisdom once, but in every situation. What an awesome blessing!
Our Father is saying to us today, “I want you, as My daughter, to have a spirit of wisdom and revelation. I want to show you great and mighty things you never knew. I want to show you a new side of Me and make you rich in experiences with My love and grace. I want to reveal My secrets to you. My divine plan. With everything that is going on in the world today, you must not formulate opinions and conclusions based on what you see or hear. You need insight that only comes from Me. Seek Me with all your heart and you’ll find Me, ready to download My wisdom into your heart that will bring you honor and glory.”
Prayer: Father God, thank You. I need a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. I submit to You and choose to walk in what You would have me to do. I thank You for delivering me from the control of the enemy and for taking complete control of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
