Ephesians 3, verse 18 says:
“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” (NLT)
My mind has a finite scope to understand how immensely great God’s love is but the truth is I am truly enveloped by HIS unconditional love even if I do not deserve it.
God’s love is perfect. It transcends every corner of our living experience.
It is WIDE — it reaches the breadth of the world we live in bridging the distance of near and far into a connected relationship uniting differences.
It is LONG — it extends from the moment we were woven into being until timeless eternity. Likewise, it is seamlessly patient and pursuing always waiting for us to return back to HIM when we stumble out of HIS reach.
It is HIGH — it lifts us to heavenly bliss celebrating HIS gracious blessings.
It is DEEP — it unearths the encouragement to wean out depression, frustrations, fear, and even death transforming trials into victories that allow us to see God’s mercy and grace.
May the power to understand God’s love make us see the fullness of life that comes from God alone.
