For this reason I bow before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. -Ephesians 3:14-19
Lord, I humbly bow before You, asking for the strength to endure and that my faith would increase by the power of Your Spirit. May the foundation of my heart, regardless of the world, be love, which is a strength we all need. You are love, Lord. Fill my heart that no matter what circumstances come my way, I would always carry the banner of Christ’s love which is beyond human comprehension. For only through Christ, can I truly love.
