The Fullness of God

Ephesians 3:16-19

I pray that he may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

God wants more for us than we can ever imagine. To capture the fullness of His perfect desire for us requires faith and love, neither of which we can manufacture in our own strength. He must strengthen our inner man with His Spirit and give us faith to believe Him and His love to establish us in Christ. When we can truly believe in His love for us and allow that love to permeate our being, we can begin to walk forth in obedience.

Much of our sin comes from the need to self-protect. As we try diligently to guard ourselves from perceived harm or comfort ourselves from the tensions of the world, we rely upon sources that cannot fully satisfy but give us a false sense of temporary security. These temporary sources are our idols – sin. We need God to strengthen our inner man to believe totally in His love for us and to trust His perfect will in our lives. When we are fully established in His love, we can move forward in faith, believing His word over our feelings. As we walk forth in His word, we receive power from the riches of His glory to shine and be victorious in a dark world.

Resources are not a problem for God. Healing is not a problem for God. Whatever your need may be, you can move forward in faith toward that goal by allowing Him to strengthen your inner man with the power of His Spirit. The bottom line of the matter is that God loves you. He is with you and for you, and He wants you to succeed. As you believe this, He will strengthen your faith to believe His word over your emotions. By choosing to walk according to His word and not by your feelings, you begin to walk in the fullness of what He has for you, and it is certainly worth the change of mind you encounter.

Have a blessed day!
