At Vertical Church in Maple Grove, we've been digging into Ephesians 3:14-21 over the past 3-4 weeks. There are two unbelievable, earth-shattering truths in this passage.
First, there's the life-changing truth that God loves us with a love that is infinitely greater than our desperate need to be loved. Our need to be loved is beyond words; hard to describe and yet clearly felt and known and longed for internally.
The Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 3 that God's love is so grand that no human can fully understand it with human senses or human intelligence. God's love can't be measured and yet it is able to satisfy our inner need to experience perfect love.
Think about it.
The height of God's love is able to take us to heavenly places. The depth of God's love is able to rescue us from the greatest darkness. The width of God's love is able to forgive the worst of sinners. The length of God's love is able to to last for all of eternity.
The love of God is more valuable and insanely more necessary than you could ever know.
Second, there's also the power of God. The power of God is more, far more, abundant than we could ever think or ask. It's not possible for us to even imagine how powerful is the power of the powerful ability of God.
God's power is limitless.
And thankfully, God's ability to be powerful in our lives doesn't depend upon what we think about God's power. It doesn't depend on our intelligence. If we can't fully grasp, intellectually, how much God can do it doesn't stop God from doing stuff, great stuff.
God's ability also doesn't depend upon our imagination, our creativity. If you can't begin to imagine how great God's power could be in your life, that's okay. You could never fully imagine it anyway.
Lastly, even if you don't personally ask the Lord to fulfill all the great possibilities in your life, God is remarkably still able to do immeasurable things. Why? It's because the greatness of God's power doesn't depend upon your will but His will.
As Christians, we live at the intersection of LOVE and POWER every single moment of our lives. We are given a love that is all-satisfying and we are influenced and changed and victorious because of power that is limitless.
So, stretch the limits. Remove boundaries. Choose to starve the doubts and feed the possibilities. God is able!
You Are Loved!
