What a great reminder to start our day submitting our entire being to the Lord.
I love this scripture from Ephesians and prayHis truth over our lives and those we know and love.
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 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, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”- Ephesians 3:14-19
One of my favorite prayers from the Bible is Ephesians 3:14-21. Paul prayed it for the Ephesians. Eloquently written and beautiful to read out loud, Paul's prayer is packed with truth that we all need.
In this prayer for spiritual strength, we find these main ideas - strength comes from the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ dwells in our hearts through faith, we are to be rooted and established in love, we have power to grasp the love of Christ, we should know that God's love surpasses knowledge, and we can be filled to the measure of the fullness of God.
This is a prayer that I pray over myself, my family. I also pray this over young ladies I mentor and new believers. When we are in a season of discouragement, pray this prayer out loud every day.
Have a blessed day knowing how loved you are, knowing we are here for a purpose, especially for such a time as this... and as we submit ourselves to the Lord, He uses us in mighty ways!
