Wide enough
Deep enough –Eph 3:19
To care for you and me –1Pe 5:7

Surrender all to the Lord – He cares for you.

1Peter 5:5-7 NET … God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

Psalm 95:6-7 NET … Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. 7 For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. TODAY, if only you would hear His voice {and obey Him}!

Ephesians 3:14-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
