I hope this letter finds you well. I recently came across a passage in the Bible that has been resonating with me and I wanted to share it with you. The passage is Ephesians 3:10 where Paul writes about his greatest discovery in ministry. He states that God desires to rule His people “so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in heavenly places.”
This passage reminds us that God has a purpose and a plan for His church, and that as a child of God, it is important for us to understand how to function in “heavenly places.” Not understanding how to function in the spiritual realm can cause challenges in our earthly places. We need to be grounded in the Word of God, filled with the Holy Spirit, and to be in constant communication with God through prayer.
We are called to be the light of the world, to be a city on a hill that cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14). We are called to be salt and light in this world, to bring healing and hope to those around us (Matthew 5:13-16). But to be able to fulfill these callings and to overcome challenges in our earthly places, we need to have a strong foundation in the spiritual realm and to be in tune with God’s will.
As believers, we have the privilege and the responsibility of sharing the love and message of Jesus with those around us. We are called to be ambassadors of Christ, to be His hands and feet in this world (2 Corinthians 5:20). And for that, we need to be grounded in the Word of God, filled with the Holy Spirit, and to be in constant communication with God through prayer.
In conclusion, God desires to use us to make His wisdom known to the rulers and authorities in heavenly places, but for us to be able to fulfill that purpose, we need to understand how to function in the spiritual realm. As children of God, let us strive to have a strong foundation in the spiritual realm, so that we can overcome challenges in our earthly places.
