Rooted in God's Love

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, together with all the saints, 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.
~Ephesians 3:16-19

The undiminished radiance, which is the result of abundant joy, is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can change. And the experiences of life, whether they are everyday events or terrifying ones, are powerless to "separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" ( Romans 8:39 ).
~Oswald Chambers

I just want these two passages to speak for themselves. This is part of the journey where I am now: being rooted deeply in God's love and meditating on His awesome majesty and glory! If I am rooted in His love then His love will flow through me and into the hearts of others. This is my prayer for all of us. Come what may-- the good or bad-- it doesn't matter if you are rooted in God's love. His Love is all we need. When other people we are close too fail us or fall through it's ok-- we are rooted in God's love and we draw from His source and His source alone. We never draw from God's blessings to get love. We will always walk away upset or disappointed. Instead, we draw from God's love. Jesus is the living water that never runs dry. He has an endless supply! That's why Christians are totally secure regardless of their circumstances. When everyone has failed us we are so rooted in the Love of God that our cup still overflows. Our cup doesn't not overflow because of God's blessings, but because of His love!!! Even in the desert or wilderness like David-- our cup STILL runneth over (Psalm 23:5)! Because we have access to an unlimited supply of God's love! Amazing and comforting isn't it? The Lord is good to all; He has compassion of all He has made! ~Psalm 145:9
