"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe."
"I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power...to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
This afternoon as I was reading through the book of Ephesians, I was so incredibly encouraged. The past few weeks have been a bit rocky for me - lots of ups and downs - and God's Word totally spoke to my heart when and where I needed it most. He is so good, and I am so grateful to know that I am His beloved daughter.
Have you ever had one of those moments - when Scripture just completely searched out the depths of your heart and whispered the perfect words?! Ah, the peace one feels when that happens! It surpasses anything else imaginable, because in that moment it is so evident that the Lord of all Creation knows exactly what you are going through and knows exactly what you need to hear in order to fall into His arms. The truth is that He loves you and He will restore you, just so long as you trust Him!
