Paul prayed for the Ephesians that:
Ephesians 1 (NKJV)
18 the eyes of your [a]understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
God wants us to realize how rich we are in Christ, and that everything we need is already provided for us in Him. Some Christians have the mindset that they don’t have what they need to obtain and keep the victory, so they erroneously go around seeking some ‘spiritual’ person to lay hands on them, and give it to them. (No doubt there is a valid ministry of laying on of hands.)
You will find it most beneficial to pray the prayers in Ephesians 1:17-23 and 3:14-19 over yourself every day. Personalize them and pray like this: “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of my understanding being enlightened; that I may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints….”
Purpose to become rock solid in the word of God, so that when any of these wrong doctrines come around, you will recognize immediately that they are unscriptural. The Spirit of God inside you will tell you. Abraham’s blessings are yours today and always. Believe it, receive it, and daily walk in it!
