God’s Immense Love

Today : God’s Immense Love

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” Ephesians 3:16-18 (NLT)

When times get rough or I am burdened and overwhelmed with thought, this passage pulls me through. It is more than a prayer that Paul gave to the Ephesians, it is a statement of a reality that you and I can have. It is God’s desire that you and I experience an inner strength. A super natural strength that is powered through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit resides inside us and helps us understand how much God loves us. The heart of Paul’s prayer was that you and I would experience the love of Christ and be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Isn’t that incredible? Isn’t it time that we become complete in Christ? We can. Get to know Him. Spend time in His word, abide in Him and you will experience what Paul did, that God is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Father, I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources that You will empower me with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit. Give me the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love is. I put my trust in You.
