DEDICATION AND REVELATION
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened…
The more revelation we receive of God’s goodness toward us, the deeper our level of consecration or dedication will be.
Reverend Kenneth E. (Dad) Hagin ministered in my Dad’s church time and time again. He would open his Bible to Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 and say, “This is not a prayer for sinners or for the lost; Paul is praying for Spirit-filled believers. This is a prayer that all believers should pray!”
After teaching on this prayer, he stressed, “If you are not happy with your life, if you want life to be different for you, then pray this prayer for at least six months. Don’t pray it one week and then skip a week. Pray this prayer at least once a day, every single day for six months. Pray it over and over again. Just stick with it until something happens. If you do that, life will be different for you. The first thing that will happen is that the Bible will become a different book to you.”
Confession: May the eternal wisdom make me wise. May all the veils be torn away, so far as that may be in this life, and the full glory of the Revelation come flooding in upon me, so that my knowledge may be directed to the true end.(Ephesians 1:17-18 Carpenter Translation)
