30 April – Faith Increase! (Part 3)

Just because people don’t believe or have difficulty comprehending the power, perfection and loving heart of God doesn’t mean it’s not true.
God won’t force us to believe what He says, or what He has done, or even to walk in the awesome plan and purpose He uniquely created each of us for. That decision is entirely up to us.

I for one want to grab hold of with both hands all for which He took hold of me. I don’t want to miss opportunities because I didn’t choose to listen or believe. What a waste; when we can do, and be so much more.

When God reveals things to us there is a process. First He speaks potential and revelation, and a seed of faith is planted. Then we face the problem of realising we need more faith, which takes us to receiving the promises in His word, which fixes the problem. Then we receive the plan and strategy to move forward.

What comes next is what I term “putting the wheels on our faith?

5 . Process stage – “The fight of faith”. When we receive a promise from God there is a process to be walked through, it doesn’t usually just happen.  The thinking “if it’s God’s will it’ll happen” has caused far too many of us to miss out.

There is battle going on and when you start to walk by faith and put your believing to work, opposition will test your conviction. This is where those faith muscles we’ve been building in knowing God and His word come to the fore.

We have to stand up to any opposition, negativity, doubt and  unbelief. We fight with our faith and the knowledge of who we are in Jesus and the authority we have, so that our promise comes to pass. God says we have overcome, and that we are more than conquerors. So don’t lie down, get up, stand in the revelation you have received, take the promises in God’s word (which God says is your sword,) and use it to push through any opposition.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:17)

Continue to trust God, do what He tells you to do, and keep believing.

Prayer: Lord help me to see who I am in you, and to stand on your promises for my breakthrough. In Jesus name Amen

 

 

29 April – Faith Increase! (Part 2)

When we talk about what it means to go from faith to faith, it’s process or cycle of how our faith brings the unseen into the seen.

Faith is having the confirmation or the title deed of things we hope for, and the conviction of their reality.  Faith perceives as real fact what is not yet revealed to the senses. It is a knowing, believing and trusting.

There is the potential and problem stage in the cycle of faith (see blog post 28 April).

Next is the:
3. Promise stage – a release of faith happens where the answer to the problem of needing more faith is revealed to you. The answer to the problem is a promise.
God meets our problem with a promise found in His word. This promises releases faith. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
It’s vitally important to seek God for His promise and word on the situation. Before you can trust you have to listen.

4.Plan stage – For every promise God has a strategy to “work out our faith”

“In the same way,  faith by itself,  if it is not accompanied by action, is dead” .(James 2:17)

Faith calls for action and obedience. We purposefully ask, “Lord what do you want me to do?” There is a process to faith, and breaking through from one level of faith to another, as we believe God for each stage we are at.

This is where we get what I call “faith muscles”. We put our believing in God’s promises to work as we ask “What’s the next step, and then we do it.” God has a strategy and a plan so that we both believe and receive. If we wait and listen He will literally give us an action plan for how to move forward.

Take time to discover God’s promise – it’s in His word, and then get divine wisdom, and strategy. Don’t make the mistake of presuming or even instructing God on how it’s going to all happen. “Presumption is the mother of all stuff ups”. Instead wait on God, spend time meditating on His promise/s, and you’ll find that He’ll lead you in the way you should go.

Prayer: Lord I thank you for the promises in your word, which you are alert and active watching over to perform them.  Help me to wait and listen so that I walk in your plan and strategy and not my own. In Jesus name Amen.

28 April – Faith increase! (Part 1)

“Faith does not refuse to look at the circumstances in front of us; faith looks beyond all difficulties to God and His promises”.

Everyone has a measure of faith, it is deposited within each of us so  that we can come into a relationship with Jesus.But we also have the opportunity to grow that measure of faith. God wants us to live by faith, it pleases Him.

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him”. (Hebrews 11:6)

Greatness does not depend on our position in life but upon our respect of the positive ideas that flow into our imagination. God reveals to us to believe that we are brilliant, creative, powerful. We get a mental picture and it can by the working of faith turn into a physical reality. When we believe in our ideas, and God’s ability to bring them to pass, faith will survive.

I’ve discovered there is a process to faith. We go from faith to faith.

1.Potential stage – God speaks; He may also use others around us to speak confirming words or possibility. A prophetic word, an image or idea, a dream planted. We don’t have to have the faith for it all to come to pass, just enough to receive the seed of an idea or dream.

Faith begins when we begin to believe the ideas God sends us. Beware however because faith can die at this potential stage unless we grab hold of that “little seed”, and it is planted firmly within us, by soaking it in the Word and promises of God.

2.Problem stage – This part of the faith walk is when we realise we need more faith to possess what has been planted in us.

Take heart though, a problem is a springboard to our breakthrough. Often we don’t seek to change without a crisis or problem. I have a saying that “God will allow us to be uncomfortable as a catalyst for change” We are primarily comfort seekers, and it’s often only when we are uncomfortable that we take steps to shift and grow. We are being set up for breakthrough!

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ”. (Romans 10:17)

God wants us to be in a continual position of believing Him for new things. Faith is not a stagnant thing. It’s always moving, from faith to faith. “The just (righteous) will live by faith” (Romans 1:17)

Recently we took a trip to Europe with five of our children. A dream we had held onto for many years, we’d prayed, given in faith, and held onto the promises of God and His desire to bless us. It was an amazing and very special time as a family for us. On boarding the flight home, I started to thank the Lord for our amazing time. Straight away I heard Him say, “That’s great, now where would you like to go next?” I was a little amazed. Here I was thanking God for the blessing I had just received, and He was already asking me how He could bless us again. The seed for our next big family adventure was planted.

Today ask yourself,” Have you any seeds of faith within you? Something you are believing God for? Has He spoken? Have you had a possibility, an idea, a dream planted within you? Go to God and His promises and seek Him for what He wants to release next in your life.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”. (Hebrews 11:1)

Prayer: Lord I thank you for your promises and your desire for me to grow from faith to faith.  Plant in me a seed that I may believe you for bigger and better things in my life. Plant in me your plans for my life. In Jesus Name Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

27 April – “Something gotta a hold of me”

“Something’s gotta hold of me. Oh it must be love!” Our second daughter has been singing that at the top of her lungs today. And yes in case you are wondering she is LOUD!  It got me thinking though that the something who does, and who I want to have a hold of me is Jesus, and He is love.

When you know Him sunshine switches on in the inside of you. We do not have the spirit of a quitter on the inside of us. The spirit of Jesus dwells within us. He is in us, and we are in Him, closer than the air we breath.

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)

We no longer have to live in our own strength, our own knowledge or ability. The spirit of God dwells within us. We can do all things, we can know Him, and we can therefore become the people we were created to be.

The bible says “Therefore is anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17), so “don’t not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).

God wants us to know we are, and who He is. Why? Because when we know who has taken hold of our life, who has rescued us, who loves us, we won’t be afraid or worried or have a care about the things of the world anymore. We will really know Him, and understand that all that matters is that He has a hold of us. Everything is, and will be more than alright!

Life with Jesus is not meant to be a colorless existence. He wants us to have fun, for us to enjoy, to embrace love and life in Him. To have fullness and abundance of life.

He knows everything we need, every bill that needs paid, every family drama, every demand on our time and energy, every concern, hope and dream. He knows it all, and He wants to be right in the center of it all. Because He loves you and He sees you.

His plan for our lives is far above what we could ever even hope or dream or even dare to imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)

What holds God’s purpose and plan from coming to pass too often is us. We can hold things up because we struggle to understand and enter into all the goodness God has for us. Too often we are trapped in our wrong thinking about what God can do, and whether we are worthy, or we believe the lies whispered that God is a “Kill joy”.

Take some time to read His words in the bible and you will soon find out to the contrary. That lie couldn’t be further from the truth. God is love and He wants to lavish His love and blessings, His joy and fun, and exuberance for life all over us. He wants us to enjoy this life, to be free from toil and worry and strife. How often have we read in his word or heard him whisper “Don’t worry, don’t be afraid”, and yet we still do?

So today I say,  “Let’s get rid of some stinking thinking about who God is, and what it means to have Him in our life. He is waiting, He is calling, and what He has planned for you is all good. Let Him really take a hold of you, and you’ll soon find out.

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1)

Prayer: Lord I thank you for your love that surpasses anything the world has to offer. Forgive me where I have thought of you as something you are not. Forgive me where I have fallen into toiling and stressing, instead of living life as you made me to live it. Lift off the weights and the lies, and let me see that the “something that has a hold of me” is only meant to be you and your love. In Jesus Name Amen.

26 April -Unblock the cisterns!

What happens to a cistern when it gets a blockage? Well if you have ever had the misfortune of having a blocked toilet or drain, or smelling a pool of water when it hasn’t been flowing you will know it is not “pretty”. A lake or pond with no water flowing in or out of it turns putrid. Nasty things breed, slimy stuff grows, and diseases flourish. Plants and fish start to die.

We’re like a cistern, and we are meant to be reservoirs of life.

John 14:14 says that Jesus is the living water. His living water of life, of love, of peace, of power, and joy flows like rivers within us. We are to keep our reservoir supplied with clean  water that washes away any junk. Life is meant to flow in, and flow out of us.

But what can cause our reservoirs or cisterns to bet blocked up?

Hurts unforgiveness, cares of the world, toil, weights, and hard times, can crowd and obstruct that life and “dam” it up. Our source of life can be blocked off, as things come into our reservoirs to rob us of our freedom. The result is unfulfilled broken dreams and vision, talents and gifts not used, words not said, songs not sung, paintings not painting, holidays not taken, adventures not explored, sins not forgiven, and risks not taken.

All these things block our river of life and the Holy spirit from working in our life. Instead “lurgies” start to grow and fester in our reservoirs. Once beautiful things grew in our lives, but now blockages have caused those things to wither, die and decay.

The answer to this dilemma is to clean out the reservoir, to flush out the cistern, to let the Holy spirit flow rivers of life through every part of our being. That is what Jesus wants for each one of us. That we would have no blockages, no oppression, only freedom.

“Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water. By this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; “(John 7:38)

Jesus came to set us free, He said, “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full“. (John 10:10)

 “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ” So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:32,36)

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ( Isaiah 40:31)

God gives life, and it’s a life that is meant to be lived, enjoyed and embraced with everything we have within us. Not just a mere existence. We are not designed or created to back away from Life! Rivers of life flow from heaven to us, from Jesus to us. But things can obstruct and crowd out that river of life.

Today let Him wash you with His rivers of living water, washing away obstructions of hurt, unforgiveness, tiredness and toil, so that His life and love can flow through every part of your being.

Prayer: Lord Jesus let your healing restoring life flow bringing life in every part of my spirit and soul. I want to live free of the weights and toil that so easily entangle me and to really live. In Jesus Name Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

25 April-Your best day ever!

The basic law of photography is that you let light pass through a negative to get a positive. Life is much the same way. When we let Jesus’ light pass through every negative the positive comes out of every negative situation.

It’s our attitude towards situations that determine who we are, and who we will become. Even if we have had something horrendous happen in our lives, we make to a large extend the decision how we  will allow these events to affect and shape our futures. Many of the world’s greatest discoveries, artistic masterpieces and inventions were made in times of deepest trouble. Tough times can bring out the best in us. Disappointments and heartbreak can become opportunities.

In 1880 a little girl named Helen Keller was born. At 19 months of age she was struck down with an acute illness which left her both blind and deaf. As a result of these disabilities she was also unable to learn how to speak. Society didn’t specialise in the care she needed.

But a women name Anne Sullivan trained her not only to speak but to read. Helen Keller became a recognised author and lecturer, and received the presidential medal of freedom. Her lecturing tours were highly sought after. After World War 2 she visited wounded soldiers in hospitals, and spoke all over the world. Helen Keller is known for her success, bravery , dignity and resolve to rise above life’s difficulties.

Sometimes life deals us lemons, but it is wisdom that says, “Don’t sit there sucking on  those lemons, go and make some lemonade.

Raphael a famous Italian painter was asked which of his paintings was his greatest work? He thought for a moment and then said. “My next one“.

You can’t change the past, and you definitely can’t live there, but you can shape the future. Make your future your best years ever. That means today has the potential to be the best day ever!

When it seems impossible Jesus says to look to Him. Look to Him when it is seems to difficult, when you’re disappointed. Look to Him when you are tempted to settle for second best in your life. Allow Jesus to speak to you, to put vision and dreams in your heart. He is the restorer of broken dreams. He infuses life into our hearts where we felt we were dead inside.

“He gives life to the dead and call things that are not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17)

Let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before usfixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith. (Hebrews 12:2)

 

 

 

Jesus came and gave His best – Himself; so that we could have a life; free from guilt, pain, shame and death. He is the ultimate positive thinker. He challenged traditions, and mindsets, stood up to hypocrisy and reached out to the lost, the hurting the unaccepted. He gave His life to free mankind from the evil plans of the devil. He is our example, our guidepost, our benchmark.

God gives us vision and strength to make a contribution to the world that is desperately in need of role models. All of us are born with incredible potential for greatness. Possibilities are unlimited. We are created to stand out, not to blend in. To shine. God plans and promises to strengthen each of us to rise above adversity, and struggles if we will follow His lead and take hold of Him. People are searching for a light, and Jesus says we are to be that light.

You are the light of the world.. let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven“. (Matthew 5:14-16)

Winston Churchill another person who “shone” in adversity once said, “Things don’t happen to me, I happen to things“. So I say, “Let’s go happen to things today”!

Prayer: Jesus I choose to fix my eyes upon you; to not settle for second best in my life, to dream big dreams, and to have you as my example and guide. I want to live a life “happening” to things rather than waiting for things to happen to me. Lead, guide and strengthen me to live my best life.  in Jesus name Amen.

 

 

24 April -Speak, I’m listening!

Within each of us is a deposit of greatness! It’s up to us what we choose to do with that deposit.

The moment you ask Jesus into your life you are called to not have an ordinary life.

God wants us to be people that do something to impact the world around us. Too often however we think we can’t make any difference and it doesn’t matter what we do, or don’t do.

But if you look through history you can easily see that one person can make a difference. I am always challenged when I read about the men and women who are known for their impact on the world. Men and women who chose not to limit their influence by what they could do, but who chose to put their lives in the hands of Jesus and simply said “Here I am, use me”.

Men like Dwight Moody, Mother Teresa, Oral Roberts, Hudson Taylor, Gladys Alyward, and Maria Woodworth etter. These men and women, some who were uneducated, and from poor families did astounding and amazing exploits, and their deeds have lasted long after they have gone from this world.

I love the story of one such man named Dwight Moody. He was born in 1837 to poor parents in a humble farmhouse in Massachusetts. At 17 years old he left home to move to Chicago as a shoe salesmen.

There he made a decision. He started to seek God first for his life and future, and as he did Dwight started to feel compelled to speak to people about Jesus. Soon he had crowds listening and a large church formed as he continued to share. At different times 50,000 people would crowd around him as he stood up in his buggy and spoke about Jesus in the open air. Presidents and their cabinet members sat on platforms with him as he preached. Through his endeavors the YMCA was also formed.

Dwight Moody was known as a man surrendered to God. He was a man of prayer, actually a greater prayer than a preacher. He knew in the depths of his soul that nothing is to hard for God, and so he would pray. He knew God’s word, he read and studied it. He was humble, and free from the love of money, and he was empowered by the Holy Spirit

But what always inspires me most is that this one man knew the value of one person to God. Everyday he would speak to at least one person about Jesus, even if that meant getting back out of bed late at night and going out on the street to find someone to share with about Jesus.

He was one ordinary man, but God used this humble shoe salesman to change millions of lives, and his spiritual legacy continues to impact the world today.

Life is full of good things; jobs, families, careers, cars, houses, holidays etc. But if that is all that our lives consist of then we have missed it. In the end our possessions, clothes, shoes, personal items, holidays, photo’s, and souvenirs are all packed up in boxes. Cars sit in driveways until they are sold or given away. Houses are left empty or sold. Someone else replaces us in our job. All the things we seek and strive after in this world are temporal. They may all be good things, but how many of them are lasting?

The bible says, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever” (1 Peter 1:24).

What if we had the perspective of what is the most important thing? What if we thought about using our time each day not just on the immediate, but on what is also of eternal significance. What an awesome difference we could each make in the lives of people around us if we just stopped and asked God, “What would you have me say and do today?”

This week spend some time at the start of each day asking Jesus what He has for you to do? Who to speak to, to call, to have a coffee with, who to pray for or with? One person can make a difference. Why not make that one person you!

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Prayer: Lord help me to see the difference I can make, and to see the eternal significance I can make today. Speak to me Lord, I’m listening. In Jesus name Amen.

23 April – Love, Love, Love!

In struggling orphanages in parts of the world, children are sadly never shown love, they have never experienced a gentle loving touch, or affection, and are rarely cuddled. There is nothing physically wrong with these children, but they all lie lifeless in their cots, their bodies wasting away and their eyes staring vacantly ahead like little human shells.

However when people arrive at these orphanages to help the often overworked and overwhelmed staff, they begin to touch and cuddle these children, and to show them love. The children begin to gain weight, to smile and they come to life.

Why is there such a remarkable change in these children? Because humans were created in God’s image, and we are therefore created and wired up to love and be loved.

We all must experience love to be whole fulfilled people. The truth is that everyone is looking for love, to be valued and to feel special. Some are literally dying to be loved.

Some of us may have experienced love; we know God’s love, we know we are loved by others around us. But sadly one of the greatest weaknesses of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they are still alive.

Love is not just words, it’s actions. Love is not to be governed by our feelings, but is a choice.

1 John 3:11 in the bible says, “This is the message from the beginning, “we should love one another”. 

So how do we love fully? How do we express and tell others while they are still with us, that we love them? How do we love the seemingly unlovely; or those who are difficult to love.

1. Acknowledge God – receive His love. 

When my husband Philip and I were married, one of the pastors who married us gave us some words of advice. He said, “Today you stand here thinking how could I ever get cross or not feel in love? But if you are ever having a day where you are cross with one another, where you have annoyed one another, and you just aren’t feeling very loving. Then that  is the time to look to your heavenly Father, and ask Him to fill you with His love, so that you can then love one another more deeply.”

When we run out, God’s love comes in. When we choose to acknowledge God, we allow His love to fill our hearts.

2. Set aside yourself – be consecrated is another way of saying that. Let go of all of your hurts, and the things you have been carrying in your heart. Make room for God, and then others in your heart. When we carry resentment or undealt with hurts and fears we have no room for love. God says to us, “Make room for me, and make room for Love”!

3. Make a choice!  “I have set before you life and death, therefore choose life” (Deuteronomy 30:19).

Don’t get caught up in the unimportant. Don’t live with regrets. Don’t get so busy you can’t see those around you. Enlarge the borders of your heart and life. There is so many who need to be loved. They need a kind word, a smile, a helping hand.  Choose to open up your heart to love, and the giver of love who’s name is Jesus. He will fill your heart with a love that no fire, adversity, hardship or sorrow can extinguish. He will enable you to love with His love that never fails, with a love that changes people’s lives.

If you have been trying to do it alone in your strength and ability, simply turn to Him, ask His forgiveness and receive from Jesus all you need. He will make a way where it seems there is no way.

“Many waters cannot quench love, Nor will rivers overflow it” (Song of Solomon 8:7)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.” And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13)

 

“When it’s all said and done all our treasures will mean nothing. Only what we have done for love’s reward will stand the test of time”.

Prayer: Jesus I ask for you to please fill my heart with love. Forgive me where I have tried to love and live in my own strength and ability. I give you my whole heart and ask you to mend it and fill it with your love. Then help me to love others as you love me. In Jesus Name Amen.

 

22 April -What love is!

“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction we are loved”.

The world has a view of love which is understood to be: an intense felling of deep affection or fondness for a person or thing. A great liking. This meaning is taken from the Latin and Greek words – eros and amore’. It is speaking essentially of a love of the worthy.

Love is also mentioned 735 times in the Bible. The word love in the bible has however a different definition. It is when someone is loved no matter what, even if totally unworthy!

1 John 3:16 explains love this way, “This is how we know what love is. Jesus Christ laid down his life for us”.

If we speak of God, of His greatness, His power, His righteousness, but omit to say He is Love we omit that which matters most of all!

He is Love, and the most important thing, is for us to know that love. God encourages us to earnestly pursue and seek to know this love, to make it our aim and our greatest quest. (1 Corinthians 14:1)

It’s a love which holds nothing back, a love which is always giving, a love which overlooks cultural, economic and class boundaries, a love demonstration in action when Jesus gave His life for all mankind on a wooden cross.

Look for yourself at Jesus as He loves the women who was sentenced to death for adultery (John 8:3-11), or the raising from the dead, and back to life of the only son of a widow (Luke 7:11-15), of the acceptance of Zaccheus, the despised thieving little man (Luke 19:2-10), or of the demon possessed, tormented man who lived in the cemetery, who Jesus loved and freed to live a new life (Mark 5:2).

Jesus is the same yesterday, and today and forever. How he loved then, is still how he loves now. It doesn’t matter if you think yourself invisible to everyone else, He still sees you. It doesn’t matter what you have or haven’t done, how successful you are, or if you feel a complete failure. It matters not! Jesus loves you.

“Love was demonstrated to us in this, that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”.(Romans 5:8)

The world’s “love system” says you are lovable if you are worthy in some way; if you deserve to be loved, if you are good enough, successful enough, and are someone others aspire to be; then you are worthy of loving. But if you are broken, ugly, or bitter and twisted; if you are unpopular, or even invisible to others then who would bother loving you?

I say that the world’s love system is failing, it is messed up, and it is messing people up. Both the rich and the poor, the popular and the invisible. The successful and the not so successful. The world’s love is not enough. It is second best, and flawed and unable to make us whole.

But God’s “love system” is fully intact and transforming. If we believe that, or we desperately want that type of love, we have a decision to make. Which love will we seek after and earnestly long to know with all our hearts?

I’m not talking about just a head knowledge of love; of a “Oh yes, Jesus Loves me”.  But a deep, transforming knowledge and peace that regardless of what you do or how you perform, you know you are deeply loved.

Jesus says you can know that kind of love. He says “You will find me if you seek me, when you search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13).

May you seek to know and live in this love; and in knowing will you have the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:18-19)
