The DEEP – Enlighten (Part 2/4)
Are we seeking the DEEP with God? Finish 2019 strong by getting into the DEEP. A place of security and safety, steady ground and a place where indeed lines have fallen for you in pleasant places.
Let’s continue from last week’s topic- The DEEP, this week we look at Enlightenment
D epth of His Character
E nlightenment of our souls
E xperience God
P ower of His Might
As we go into the DEEP with God and start to receive wonderful revelations about the Depth of His Character, our souls get enlightened. To be enlightened means a number of things:
- To shed light on
- Give greater knowledge and understanding about a subject or situation
- Explain the true facts
- Impart knowledge
Our text is taken from Ephesians 1:18 (TPT)
18 I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of His calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that He finds in us, His holy ones!
With the DEEP, comes the knowledge (through revelation by the Holy Spirit) of who God is, your identity as a child of God, the kingdom agenda, spiritual principles and many more. With understanding comes knowledge and with knowledge comes purpose and with purpose comes destiny.
Asking for a deeper walk with God means being flooded by light. God is Light, and wherever He is, darkness cannot operate or be in existence. As you dwell in His Light, your Soul becomes lit up with Him and and His Presence. You see yourself in the light of God and recognize just how inadequate and undeserving you are, yet His Love pulls you closer. This realization (illumination) enables you to start to see yourself through the eyes of God.
Once you become enlightened, it becomes really difficult for the devil to tell you lies. Enlightenment brings a release to your mind and a calmness about the God things.
You know that God is for you, in you and with you.
Prayer: Oh Lord, take me deeper. I want to know you more
Charge of the week: Pray everyday for revelation to enlighten your mind.
