“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. May you experience the love of Christ.
Ephesians 3:18-19 (NLT)
It is one thing to know about the love of Christ, it is another thing to experience it. Paul says that God’s love is wide, long, high and deep and that would take God’s own power to understand its vastness. We cannot even begin to understand God’s love by ourself. But experience it? That is Paul’s prayer, that we would experience the love of Christ. In the book, “True Faced” the authors write that we are ready to experience God’s love, “when we have the desire to be loved by Him”. And one of the best ways to find that desire is to admit to God that we have needs. When we admit we have needs, it gives us the opportunity to trust God with them, letting God love us, on His terms not ours. It is coming to God with this openness, trust and faith that allows His power to help us understand and experience the greatness of His love.
Father, I come to You admitting that I have great needs. I need Your love, I need Your power, I need Your Holy Spirit, I need Your direction. Father, I am so needy, but today I ask You to meet my needs on Your terms not mine. I desire to be loved by You dear Father and choose to trust that You will help me understand Your love in deep and meaningful ways.
