Ephesians 3

28 Apr

God, in His grace, reveaedl His character to me in such a special way.

This was around the time that Zinnia was really stuggling.  I was scared and felt overwhelmed by several issues.

I sat in my little piano room on the sofa, closed the doors and cried.

Hugging my knees up to my chest I just wanted to hear from my Lord.  I begged for comfort, the kind that only He can give me, the kind that comes from His word, the Bible. The kind that is deeper then my circumstances.

As I sat with my head down, crying for strength, the idea “Ephesians 3:16” came into my head.  I did not know this passage.

I opened my Bible and read :

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, for 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.” ESV

God, our loving Creator and sustainer has NAMED EVERY FAMILY.

He has named my family and created it, adding who he has chosen, caring for us, watching over us.

Loving us.

He’s trustworthy.  I can have faith in him.

What a beautiful passage.

Go to Him in the hard, ask Him to reveal Himself personally to you.  He is so gracious.
