Ephesians 3: 17-18
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
There is almost no way we can humanly fathom the love that God has for us. That is why we must accept this type of love, in faith. God’s love for us is beyond the knowledge of man—we cannot fully understand it. However, we do not have to understand it to accept it. There is true beauty in the thought that we are SO deeply loved by our Heavenly Father, loved so much that is goes beyond our knowledge and understanding. How perfectly wonderful is that?
As a mom, ask God daily for the understanding of His love for you. Moms need to realize the depths of God’s love more than anyone, because moms are in the position to teach God’s love to their children. Think about it: if the next generation was told every single day about the depths of love that God has for them, how would that change our entire culture? It would be like a revolution! You, as a mom in your house, doing your chores everyday—YOU could start a revolution! The revolution that you start has eternal consequences and would set your child on a course that would change their identity forever. Your child would be rooted in God’s love, so that even when your child fails, he will still know he is loved. When your child doesn't get a promotion at work, he will still know he is loved. The ramifications are endless.
Moms, “I pray that you being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to GRASP how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Amen!
Father, Oh, how I want to believe this deep, everlasting love that You have for me! God, please open my eyes. Please help me push against my critical nature and accept Your love for me. God, I want to embrace Your love, so that I may in turn teach my children. I cannot teach what I do not know. I’m asking You today, to give me faith like none other, so I will accept Your deep love for me.
