according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
According to HIS power that is at work within us…
As I sit here, and think about what these words mean, my heart strikes a cord of strength and trust.
I do not need to rely on my own strength or power. God is already at work, in and through us, leading the way through the darkness, guiding us through the fog, and helping me navigate my daily needs.
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.”
Father, I kneel before you… letting go off all my worry and pain.
“I pray that out of his glorious riches, he may strength you with power through His spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”
Thank you, Dear Father, for shining your light of truth over my life…
How I praise and thank you for your strength and power that falls on me like a summer rain… Thank you, Dear Jesus, for dwelling in my heart, and filling all the dark places with faith and light.
“And I pray that you be rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
You have rooted my heart, and my life in your love… how very thankful I am to be covered by your wings… When I doubt and search and worry, you cover me with hope… you remind me of how high and deep and wide your love is…you take my brokenness and hold me together with the fullness of all that you are… Your love surpasses all knowledge.. all understanding, and I am humbled that you choose to draw me near.
I give you my day… my heart and my thoughts. Thank you for refreshing my soul, and encouraging my heart…
May I live today surrounded by your fullness…
May my heart know it’s place covered by your grace.
I am alive, and well and living in your presence…surrounded by your glory!
May I love others well, and live to draw a hurting world unto your power and love…
I love you,
In Jesus Name,
Live in Love,
