What a crazy day so far! Thank you for all the fellowship and good times with my husband in the last 10 hours or so, and thank you for blessing my daughter so much at her college camp! Please touch my sons also, Lord. Help my oldest son grow past these difficult times he is facing. Help him find YOU and your grace to help him through! Help my middle son adjust to his new living situation, and give him peace and a renewed interest in you. And Lord, please also touch my youngest son, help him come to know you, and please teach him how to fuel his body and take care of himself better. Thank you for caring so well for ALL of us, Father!
Ephesians 3:14-21 ERV
This is the reason I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth receives its name.
I pray that he would give you, according to his glorious riches, strength in your inner being and power through his Spirit,
and that the Messiah would make his home in your hearts through faith. Then, having been rooted and grounded in love,
you will be able to understand, along with all the saints, what is wide, long, high, and deep—
that is, you will know the love of the Messiah—which transcends knowledge, and will be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to the one who can do infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us—
to him be glory in the church and in the Messiah Jesus to all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
There is so much richness in these verses! Jesus having a HOME in our hearts, so that we may know His love and be filled with God. Him being able to do infinitely more beyond anything we could imagine, and having that same power ALREADY at work among us. Whew! How can we NOT give him glory and honor and praise? Thank you, Lord, for your awesome dunamis power and your love that shapes it! Thank you for your mercy in choosing not to destroy us with that power, but rather to redeem us! I give myself to you, Shepherd, and I trust you completely with my life and my heart. I know that you will cause me to yield fruit that is pleasing to YOU, and I thank you for that great honor. Amen! 😀
