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
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
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.
