OH HOW HE LOVES US

God, our loving heavenly Father, who is perfect in all of His ways, created for Himself a family.

His desire always was to fill His Royal Household with His own. He determined to make His family in His own likeness and desired they would be filled with His own attributes, walking freely in these for eternity.

A family filled with love for Him and each other, knowing boundless joy, with a deep inner peace because they know to whom they belong. Those who are patient in the waiting. Who are exceptionally kind, full of goodness and unswervingly faithful. A family overflowing with gentleness and self-control.

To such as these He gives His entire kingdom! His desire is to share everything with us and reveal all His hidden mysteries. Mysteries hidden not from us, but for us from time immemorial.

His longing has always been to shower us in His love, this God who cannot hate, who loves us with an everlasting love. Who has made unfathomable provision for us and who holds all things in His hand.

His desire for us is greater than our desire for Him! His desire is not only that we would come to Him, but that we would walk with Him and come to know Him in deeper and deeper ways.

This God who has from the beginning been all about love.

His story is the ultimate love story, there is no other! He has longed for us to turn our hearts towards Him. He has longed for us to see what He has planned for us. As we make that choice to say yes to Him and turn our hearts towards Him, we step into eternity. We become true royalty as part of the Royal Household of our God and King. We become a royal priesthood, a holy nation.

We are transformed and we go from glory to glory. 

He wants all to turn towards Him, but sadly they won’t.  But those of us who have and who will, step into the love story of all eternity and are caught up in the everlasting mystery with our beautiful heavenly Father forever….

For this reason [grasping the greatness of this plan by which Jews and Gentiles are joined together in Christ] I bow my knees [in reverence] before the Father [of our Lord Jesus Christ], from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name [God—the first and ultimate Father]. May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality], so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].

Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen.
