When we read God’s words, we become enlightened, so we know hope. God invites us to have his glorious inheritance and great power for those who believe. God’s almighty power was demonstrated when he raised Christ from the dead. God did not just raise Christ from the dead. Christ is now seated in the heavenly realms. Christ is far above earthly authority, dominion and power now and in the age to come.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
–Ephesians 1:18-21 (NIV)
I hope that these scriptures verses spoke to you today and gave you hope. Whatever we are going through on earth, know that Christ is above it all. We can find strength through God, who brought Jesus back to life and raised him from the dead. God is the ultimate source of peace, strength and hope.
