“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” ~ Ephesians 3:16-19
Deep is the love of Christ! How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ!
Deep is the love of Christ….how breathtaking does that truly sound to your spirit ???
Each passing day it fathoms me, how much time is consumed not understanding God’s love for us. Each passing day the mind wants to analyze and entertain uncertainties instead of truth. Each passing day more souls are being tormented, bullied, and manipulated by their own emotions !!!! Our emotions have been for far too long, the main principle in our lives that dictate our next move or thought.
How amazing is it that we have a God that created us to his perfect image! A God who took time in making every single one of us. A God who created us and wrote the story of our life before we even took position here on earth! How amazing is it that just like His son, God is giving us the luxury of facing every situation just like Jesus Christ!! Like Matthew 4:4 quotes, “it is written…”. Also like John 19:30 quotes, “it is finished…”! We can take a deep breath because we are able to face everything, understanding that all of it was part of our story and everything will have an end !
Theres nothing we can possibly do to stop anything that God already wrote will happen! Since we have no control or power about it, God gave us options! We can either decide to be rooted in faith, and love! Two components that will help us our whole life! Two components that will put in perspective things we can’t even begin to understand. Or we can be rooted in the world’s way. A way that brings death sooner before we can take the next breath. A world that strips you down for all that you are and leaves you with nothing, not even your identity!!!! A world that pretends to be covered in love but it more against you than anything else!
The world measures us within their limits! God measures us in fullness! He doesn’t hold nothing back! He gives it all! It’s not something we can work for or ever earn but He still gives it to us! Being rooted and having God as our foundation is a must! It won’t make things easier but it will make things possible !!!! When we are rooted in Him, we have the rights to be able to dwell in His presences.
Let’s dwell in His presences! There’s no better foundation, than one that is formed with truth !
