Accept and Grasp God's Love for You

“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 saints, 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 3:17-19

Father God, Your words give us wonderful understanding. Give me strength when I feel fragile and weak. Those around me may not know or see but You do and I know you are reaching out to strengthen me. Help me to remember that I have Christ dwelling within me. I know He is my source in all I need to face or do every day. Help me to grasp how very much You love me. Help me to remember  how I am grounded by that love and rooted in it. You are my anchor. Thank you that I have been equipped with your love and that I have access to you through Your Spirit. Thank you for pouring your rich love over and into my life. Remind me, through your Spirit, that it is wider and longer and higher and deeper than I can ever imagine. Let me always feel wrapped and encased in your love. When I am tempted to despair over my own limited abilities and resources, fill me with a fullness and completeness. Thank you for the journey I am on to rely on You in every detail of my life. I want to live in the fullness of your love like never before. I love you and pray In the Name of my Wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
