Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
To Him be the glory in the church.
May God receive the glory in our congregations. In our homes. In our lives.
May we recognize that the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator. That he granted us breath and welcomes us into His family.
May we recognize that because of His will we are heirs with Christ of the riches of His glory.
May we recognize that it because of the Father we have the Holy Spirit. He dwells in our hearts. We have His strength and we are firmly planted in His love.
May we recognize the width and length, the depth and height of the Father’s love. That He is more abundantly faithful to us than we deserve and that He desires to give us more than we could even think to ask.
May we recognize that He knows us the best and loves us anyway.
May God receive the glory forever and ever and ever. Amen.

Amen. I join you in asking that I realize these things. Especially may I recognize the width and length, the depth and height of the Father’s love. That He is more abundantly faithful to me than I deserve and that He desires to give me more than we could even think to ask.
Yes! The more I realize His love for me, the more I am willing to follow Him for His glory and not my own. Thanks for linking up today. 🙂
Your words radiate the Truth of scripture. When we speak these things it changes us from the inside out. I am learning not only to get out the junk (writing it, praying it, etc) but to REplace it and refill up with God’s love and truth. Thank you, friend.
Wow, Kelly. All I can say to that is — Amen. So beautifully said, friend. xoxo
“… He knows us the best and loves us anyway.” Only our loving God! To Him be the glory!
