Daily Bread – October 18, 2022 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Ephesians 1:18 – …the eyes of your understanding being enlightened to know the confidence of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the holy ones. Great Confidence In The Glory Of His Inheritance The “eyes of our heart” are the spiritual sensory realm. If we are to understand things far surpassing the natural sensory realm, then we are going to have to be given a divine ability to perceive the imperceptible. We are to have a confidence communicated to us by the Word of God and taught to us by the Spirit of God. We are supposed to know a love passing knowledge, so our hearts must be given the ability to understand things our natural senses cannot perceive and the human experience cannot teach. Therefore, our Heavenly Father, in His grace, has granted to us a divine ability to interact with the Holy Spirit and to understand the heavenly plan. He has empowered us with the ability to go beyond the confines of an earthly realm – to live out our lives in the Spirit and be taught His ways. We now have the provision to perceive things not able to be seen with the natural eye – things never before entering into the hearts of men (1 Corinthians 2:9-16). Through the illumination that comes by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, we are able to understand the greatness of our calling and the glory of His inheritance provided for us in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:3, 17-23). We should have great confidence in the promises of God and the calling of God upon our lives. We have been called to walk in oneness with God. We have been called to not only have the ministry of Jesus, but a greater works ministry (John 14:12). We are the temples of the Holy Spirit, who have been given the fullness of the Spirit by baptism into His presence (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16-18). God has granted to us the ability to comprehend the marvelous world of the heavenly, so we can begin to take our place in this divine inheritance. When we were dead in our trespasses and sins, our hearts were darkened, and we were alienated from this life we now live in God. Now, because the light of the Gospel has shined into our hearts, we have the ability to comprehend union with God – and live in such a relationship that whatever we ask, Father will do it (John 15:16; 1 John 3:21-22).
