Happy Thursday! This morning a particular scripture is encouraging me, Ephesians 1:17-18.
I deeply desire that the Lord would give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, my Father in Heaven, my Redeemer! Father please open the eyes of my understanding!!! Cross references for this scripture are:
“You shall speak to all the skillful persons whom I have endowed with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister as priest to Me.
“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You;
The mind of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
“Do not cling to Me,” Jesus said, “for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go and tell My brothers, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.'”
And Stephen declared: “Brothers and fathers, listen to me! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran,
so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:8
None of the rulers of this age understood it. For if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 14:6
Now, brothers, if I come to you speaking in tongues, how will I benefit you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or teaching?
