Ephesians 3:14-21 New Living Translation (NLT)
Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Growth
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.

Word Study
.
From NetBible Phil 4:19

  • supply[4137] = to make full, to fill up, to cause to abound

.
From BibleHub Phil 4:19

  • according to his riches—The measure of His supply to you will be the immeasurable “riches of His grace” (Eph 1:7).
  • in glory—These words belong to the whole sentence. “Glory” is the element in which His rich grace operates; and it will be the element IN which He will “supply fully all your need.”
  • by Christ Jesus—by virtue of your being “IN” (so Greek, not “by”) Christ Jesus, the Giver and Mediator of all spiritual blessings.

How Deep the Father’s Love!

April 27, 2014

Romans 5:8 NIV … But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV …  For this reason I kneel before the Father,15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 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.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

 Psalm 36:5 NIV …   Your love, O LORD , reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

Thank You Lord for Your great love, a love that is wider, longer, higher & deeper than any of us can imagine. A love that gave us Your Son Jesus Christ. Help each of us get a glimpse of this love that surpasses knowledge today & always. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 .
Romans 8:37-39 … No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thy Will{Love Deeper than Pain} 
Karen Holland … 9-30-06 

A heart touched, overcome with pain 
Kneels in a garden 
Weeping in darkness 
Alone this heart prays 
In anguish the heart yields.  –Mt 26:42

Kneeling before the Lord, I know 
No matter how deep the pain 
How heavy the burden to bear 
He will not let me break 
He will not let me fall 
He is my shield 

He lifts my head –Ps 3:3
Lifted up by His hand 
Secure in this knowledge I stand 
No matter how deep the pain 
No matter how dark the night 

I am never alone 
His love is deeper than any pain 

For He yielded His heart 
Accepted the cup 
And drank.

The More I Seek You

November 11, 2009

Jeremiah 29:11-13    For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you{to give you peace} and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.

Lyrics to The More I Seek You
Kari Jobe

The more I seek You,
the more I find You
The more I find You, the more I love You

 

 

C:I wanna sit at Your feet
drink from the cup in Your hand.
Lay back against You and breathe, hear Your heart beat
This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming

 

 

Romans 8:28, 37-39    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. … 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 3:14-21   For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, 21to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
