The eyes of your 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 – Ephesians 1:18

Part of the inheritance promised us by God is, ‘The riches of His glory’. This phrase is commonly used throughout the epistles of Paul to portray the immensity of Heaven’s riches.

Every divine supply or provision (spiritual and physical) we enjoy is not based on our income or abilities but on the riches of His glory. If we truly understand the mystery of these glorious riches in Christ, we will cease struggling for this world’s goods. Having this understanding, Paul prayed for the Philippian Christians to receive divine supply “… according to His (God’s) riches in glory by Christ Jesus” – Philippians 4:19. 

Laboring to only get rich by this world’s standard is poverty in disguise because true riches are measured by the measure of our richness in God. Beyond anything else, God’s earnest desire is to bless us according to the riches of His glory. His will is to display His glory in and through us, making us His true representatives to the world.

This is revealed in another of Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians, “That He would grant you according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” – Ephesians 3:16. 

This Scripture implies that spiritual strength is part of the package of this riches as well as everything we need for life and godliness (2Peter 1:3). 

May you not labour for earthly riches at the expense of His riches in glory in Jesus’ Name!

PRAYER: Father, thank You for the immense riches You have prepared for me in glory. May I not trade these riches in glory with the fading earthly riches in Jesus’ Name!
