16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Do you need to be strengthened today? Do you need more of God’s power working in you and through you? More of Him and less of me! The key is knowing the love of Christ. God’s heart of love is overflowing for you and knowing that love and abiding in that love is our constant source of strength and power.

The great hymn by S. Trevor Francis comes to mind.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me!
Underneath me, all around me, is the current of Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward to Thy glorious rest above!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!
How He watches o’er His loved ones, died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of every love the best!
’Tis an ocean full of blessing, ’tis a haven giving rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus, ’tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to Thee!

God’s love is boundless, limitless, unfathomable, long lasting, immeasurable, steadfast. It is enough for whatever you are facing in your life today. It is enough for you to drink deep of forever and never be diminished. So, why do I so often look to be filled by other things? Why do I thirst and refuse to jump in to His love? Why do I allow myself to grow weary and tired and burdened when this abundance is there for me?

    Easy, because I am not trusting and believing what his word says about me. Love is Patient! The Lord knows what I need before I can ask for it. The more I surrender and love him unconditionally. The more my flesh is not ruling, and I begin to walk in the spirit enjoying the fruits of it. Thank you Jesus I can stay in you.
