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?
