For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19 NKJV
God is able to do all things. He spoke the heavens and the earth into existence. God’s greatest desire is for you know how much He loves you!
God sits on the Throne of His Creation. Doesn’t it make sense that God would have more important things to consider than you and me?
Maybe there is a situation at the far end of the universe that requires God’s attention. Maybe He is concentrating His efforts on a project in an unknown area of creation. Wouldn’t you think that some creature of some sort is more important to God than us?
The answer is no. In the vastness of God’s creation no one or anything is more important to Jesus than you!
God’s greatest desire is for you to know the love that surpasses all understanding. What is the love that surpasses understanding?
The love that surpasses understanding gives us peace in times of hardship and despair. It is a love that gives us calm during the storms of life. It gives our lives meaning. It gives us a firm foundation to stand upon when our world is turned upside down!
When we lost our home my son wrote these words; Lord even when times are hard, even when there is a storm in my life I will still serve You. You are my Abba Father! You are holding my hand through the flood, through the storm, when lightning strikes me. You guide me on the paths of righteousness. You give me strength through the storms. For I am the lamb and You are the Shepherd. You take good care of Me. The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want. Thy Rod and Thy staff they comfort me. You guide me in the paths of righteousness!
In 2008 my son was thirteen years old. He experienced love that surpasses understanding. He experienced the love and grace of God even as the as the life he knew came crashing down around him.
The love that surpasses human understanding is available to you today!
You cannot earn God’s love. You can receive it today. Call out to the lover of your soul. Call out to Him if all is well and good in your life. Call out to Him if you are in the midst of trial and hardship. Call out to God regardless of your circumstances!
Love does not always make sense. Love does not need to make sense. God’s love makes perfect sense all the time. God is love. Let Jesus touch you with His perfect love today!
