Grow Down

Father, forgive me for yielding to distraction…this is my time with You and Facebook should have no part in it. My phone is down and my attention is on You. Please help me hear and listen to what You have to say to me today.

Ephesians 3:14-21 (<<click the green)

Lord, help me to be “empowered…with inner strength through Your Spirit.” I know You have been doing a new work in me, accomplishing things that I could never do on my own (Praise Your Holy name! All the glory to You!) and I pray that I will cling to You. May my inner strength continue to be powered from Your “glorious, unlimited resources.”

This wonderful passage admonishes me to let my roots “grow down into Your love and keep me strong.”  Without You, I am surely weak and helpless! In my own strength, I fail. Only in You am I victorious. Thank you, Lord…

I am incomplete without Your love. Help me so that my overwhelming desire will be to “have the power to understand how WIDE, how LONG, how HIGH, and how DEEP Your love is”! May I “experience the love of Christ” – overwhelm me with Your love. May it gush and splash over on to all I meet!

And “through Your mighty power at work within me accomplish infinitely more than I might ask or [even] think”!

Unsearchable Riches

Father, the quiet of the early morning hours is my favorite time to be with You. My mind and body are fresh. My thoughts are not cluttered. A new day, a clean slate – Father I give it to You. Help me to keep You at the forefront of my mind. Use me this day as You will.

2 Timothy 2:1 (<<click here)

“…be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus.”

My Study Bible* expounds on this verse by stating that “just as we are saved by God’s grace…we should live by it. This means trusting completely in Christ and his power, and not trying to live for Christ in our strength alone.”

Lord, as I ponder on this it affirms what You have taught me in recent months. I still have my days but no matter how strongly I feel about serving You – living for You – I am incapable of doing so with my resources. There is absolutely no wisdom in doing so! My resources are limited and in no time at all they are exhausted. But as Fanny Crosby penned,

“Oh, the unsearchable riches of Christ
            Wealth that can never be told!
            Riches exhaustless of mercy and grace,
            Precious, more precious than gold!”

Help me, Lord, to remember that I do not have to live for You with my little reserves but You want me to draw from Your unlimited unsearchable riches!

Lord, enable me to fully grasp the concept that it is not prudent to simply “refuel” when I am running low. To be victorious in my struggle to remain true to You in this life I need to maintain a direct fuel line to the reservoir of Your grace and power. Thank You, Lord for loving me. I am ultimately dependent upon You!
