I pray that He will use His glorious riches to make you strong. May His Holy Spirit give you His power deep down inside you. Then Christ will live in your hearts because you believe in Him. And I pray that your love will have deep roots. I pray that it will have a strong foundation. Ephesians 3: 16-17 NIRV
Sometimes, we become weary, when we don’t respond to circumstances in our lives with FAITH instead of fear. But, God is our STRENGTH. His Spirit fills us with the power of love. And, at the seat of grace we find HOPE when we allow Jesus to dwell in the heart of our weakness.
As believers of Christ, we are renewed by His STRENGTH, when we understand God is the source of our salvation. His love for us is deep and wide! Fear WILL try and rob us of content. But, when we have been rooted in the love of Christ, He will help us receive what God provides. He will help us understand what we live WILL make us stronger.
When we have a communion with God in Christ, faith is made perfect by love. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
As we consider God’s love for us, we recognize why we shouldn't close our eyes to things we don’t want to see. He will help us open our hearts to greatness, when He reveals His will. We will flourish in faith when we stay close to Jesus. And, the love of God will make us SO much stronger than before.
Dear God, Often, we carry burdens of dread. We forget to trust the One who saves. Open our eyes, so we will see what is robbing us of Your joy. Help us find strength to experience ALL You have planned for our days. We will welcome Your PEACE as You heal the heart of weakness. And, we will gratefully embrace the power of Your everlasting love. Amen
