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 NIRV

It’s easy to become weary, when we don’t respond to circumstances in our lives with FAITH instead of fear. But, God provides us with His 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 with strength, when we recognize 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 Jesus, 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, we realize why we mustn't shut our eyes to what we don’t want to see. If we trust in Him and open our hearts to His greatness, fear WILL be eliminated. We will flourish in faith when we stay close to Jesus. And, God’s love will make us so much stronger than before. 

Dear God, Sometimes we forget to say, “I’m sorry for carrying burdens of dread.” We forget to trust the One who saves. Open our eyes, so we will understand 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 our weakness. And, we will gratefully embrace the power of Your everlasting love. Amen
