clarity

Being from south Florida, one of the things I love is the ocean. I love to water ski, fish and go diving. The water in the Caribbean is fantastic. It’s alive with animal and plant life in colors and shapes that defy description. When you put on your diver’s mask and go under the water it is like 3D on steroids with super charger boost thrown in for good measure. Everything is so vivid and clear it is surreal.

Have you ever had a moment of revelation when all of a sudden everything became clear and you wondered why you hadn’t seen it like that before? Maybe it was how to complete a task you had been struggling with? Or, maybe it was a relationship issue that, all of a sudden, became crystal clear?

What about a spiritual revelation where God, in a moment, made some truth so vividly clear that you had to respond? You had to decide what you were going to do because you were changed by the encounter. That was what Paul was talking about when he told the church at Ephesus, “Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him.” (Ephesians 1:15-19) In 2 Timothy 3:5, he described this “power” as having the ability to change us. That’s the kind of insight (i.e., revelation) God wants to give us. He wants to show us what he wants to do in our lives so that we might be transformed so we can be agents of transformation in our relationships.

Let me ask you a question – do you really want that kind of insight?
