The eyes of your understanding enlightened still more and more…
(Ephesians 1:18 Doddridge Translation)
When you see things from God’s perspective, life will be different for you! Mark Hankins
I prayed the Ephesians 1 prayer without fail day after day. For a long time, it seemed like I didn’t get anything for my efforts but a dry mouth! I never smoked marijuana and I never took LSD, but the night revelation hit me I got higher than a kite! I saw myself sitting together with Jesus in the presence of God the Father far above all principality, power, might, dominion, and every name that is named. The fact that God had put everything under Jesus’ feet, and then raised me up together with Him became so real to me!
I had been a slow learner, but revelation finally came. When revelation came, my perspective changed. I wasn’t trying to be victorious; I was victorious because of what God did for me in Christ. The spirit of wisdom and revelation changed my perspective. Instead of trying to get the victory, I realized I already had the victory in Christ!
Confession: I am victorious because of what God did for me in Christ! “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV)
