“[I pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. [I pray] that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.”
An illusionist can make you think you are seeing one thing when you are actually seeing something else. It really is fascinating to watch a really skilled magician play with the perception of my mind. I do not panic when I see him saw a woman in two because I know that it is just a trick. An illusionist makes you think something is true when it is not.
Satan is the greatest illusionist of all. He makes you think things are true that are not. He contradicts God's laws and tries to make you believe that God was quite wrong.
God however, "enlightens the perception of your mind" so that you will see the truth and not believe the "tricks" of Satan.
For example, when you watch the news on television ask God to enlighten you about what is the truth of the matters being presented. And if you are a follower of Jesus pray that He will enlighten your mind so you will know the truth about His calling, inheritance and power. You will be amazed!
