I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 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 1:16-21

Which do you like better: getting a gift you asked for and expect or getting a surprise? What about the better version of something you were wanting, maybe something you couldn’t dream of asking for?

That’s what God gave us through Jesus. An incomparable gift beyond our desires or knowledge, one that we couldn’t even think up in order to ask for. He is eagerly waiting for our eyes to open so that we can see what he has prepared for us. Surprise! It’s everything you ever wanted and more, to you from Jesus!
