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 3:18 (NLT)
God illuminated Paul’s heart when he wrote these prophetic words. We need love. But the love we find in this world is not enough. That is why Paul shared the prayer that we would have the power to really grasp God’s love. Beth Moore in her book, Praying God’s Word, writes, “We are not wrong to think we desperately need to be loved. We do. But we are wrong to think we can make anyone love us the way we need to be loved. Our need does not constitute anyone else’s call but God’s.” Paul has thrown down the challenge. It will take a lifetime to try and accomplish, but can you imagine the journey? The thrill? The joy in even beginning to see the width, length, height, and depth of God’s love? Today, ask Jesus Himself to accompany you on such a glorious adventure of discovery.
Dear Jesus, please give me the power and help me to understand how wide, long, high, and deep the Heavenly Father’s love for me really is.
