"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. May you experience the love of Christ,                                        though it is too great to understand fully." Ephesians 3:18-20

The Love of God --There is nothing like it. Some say God's love is only for some people. But in reality, God's Love is available for us all if we but turn to Him. The truth is, in our humanness, we love Him because He loved us first -- Sending His Son, Jesus, to deliver us all from our sins and into His loving embrace. Today's Scripture reveals the unsurpassed, unconditional Love that God has for each of us. If only we could fathom His love, how different our lives would be!
 

All other love we experience pales in comparison to His Love. Who else could possibly love us consistently through all of our failings, mistakes and mishaps? Who else could love us fervely when all seems lost and we are broken, bogged down in the muck and mire of daily life?  

In actuality, God stands in wait to hear our pleas for His help, even and especially in our darkest times. And He delights when we turn to Him in prayer to offer praise and thanksgiving for all the blessings He showers upon us at every turn in the road, this journey, we call life. He is the Great Healer.

The one who provides relief from our infirmities. He is the one who lessens or heals our physical and emotional pain, gives us a sound mind, and heals every addiction. He is the one who gives respite and comfort to the lonely and grieving; who sustains us through His abundant supply in times of financial need and broken relationships. He is the one who protects, and guides through wisdom and discernment, going before us to pave the way; going behind us to pick up the pieces in our wake. He is the one who makes all things work for good for those who love Him.

For anyone to say they are 'self-made' is a fallacy. For we were wonderfully, loving made Him, our Creator, God, the sole source of every blessing. We can do little by our own devices, and should always strive to give credit where credit is due. For when you understand that when you willingly serve the Triune, Almighty God who is all-powerful and the very definition of Love, how different your life becomes! He alone is capable of opening the doors and windows to opportunities in your life. He is the true source of healing, humility, compassion, and lasting joy and peace. These 'fruits of the Spirit,' are manifestations of the Holy Spirit, coveted qualities in today's cynical, chaotic World. He is food for those who hunger and thirst, manna in the desert for those who are downtrodden and hurting.

Never intrusive, always deferring to our free will, God is there for you at every turn, standing in wait for you to call upon Him with your anguished pleas for His holy intervention. He is the living God, who will save you from the throes of this world for the asking. Sometimes people refuse to turn to God because of their feelings of unworthiness, but really, none of us is worthy as we are all fallen sinners born to serve a loving God. We are fully dependent on God's grace to get us through in tough times for the asking, and He does not disappoint! Turn to Him in the big things and little things, Invite Him into your life and it will be transformed for the better!

"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." Ephesians 3:18-20
