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 respond to life’s circumstances with fear instead of FAITH. We forget God is our STRENGTH. His Spirit fills us with the power of love. At the seat of grace we find HOPE when we gratefully allow Jesus to dwell in our hearts.
As believers of Christ, we are renewed by His STRENGTH. His love for us is deep and wide! Fear WILL try and rob our content. But if we're rooted in the love of God, we will understand what we live will make us stronger. He will provide everything we need.
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.” When we have a relationship with Jesus, FAITH is made perfect by the offering of His love.
As we consider God’s love for us, we shouldn't close our eyes to what He wants us to notice. God will open our hearts to His greatness and reveal His will for our lives. Faith will flourish when we stay close to Jesus. And the love of God will surely make us stronger than before.
Dear God, sometimes we carry burdens and forget to TRUST in You. Open our eyes, so we will see what is missing and welcome what we need. Help us find STRENGTH to experience ALL You have planned for our days. We will welcome the PEACE You provide and gratefully embrace the power of Your everlasting love. And we will remain forever rooted in the amazing love of Christ. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
