Eyes of My Heart

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord of Hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my body cry out for the living God. Yes, the sparrow has found a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even at Your altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King, and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; they continually praise You. Selah. Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the paths to Zion. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the early rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; every one of them appears in Zion before God. O Lord God of Hosts, hear my prayer, and give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah. Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Your anointed. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give favor and glory, for no good thing will He withhold from the one who walks uprightly. O Lord of Hosts blessed is the man who trusts in You. [Psalm 84] 

Holy Spirit Your word says: “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the wealth of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the mighty working of His strength.” [Ephesians 1:18&19] Let the eyes of my heart, the listening of my spiritual ears all know and be enlightened by You and Your word so that I can be fully aware of Your presence in my life and the direction of where I am heading. Let me become very discerning to Your will and fully comprehend or understand what You are training and using me for in building Your kingdom.  

For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches,

he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him, who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
