“I pray that you… may grasp… this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, … to him be glory.”Ephesians 3:17-20
Before the rain commenced that became the great flood, could Noah imagine all that the Lord was going to do for him, his family, and a boatload of animals? Could Moses imagine how the Lord would save him and the Hebrew people from death as the Egyptians bore down on them and the Red Sea stood before them? Could Jonah imagine that God would snatch him out of the stormy sea, preserve him inside the belly of a fish, and send him out again? In ways “immeasurably more” than they could have ever asked or imagined, God rescued His people.
Remembering what the Lord has done in our lives is an important part of our faith. The psalmists wrote about how good it is to remember and how bad it is to forget (see Psalm 78:42; 105:5; 106:7). We grasp His love for us more as we remember all He’s done for us.
“As long as I have Christ’s love,” today’s prisoner-contributor states, “all things are complete in me! I am filled with the fullness of God. His power which goes beyond my imagination is already in me and will see me through daily.”
Pray for Brian who has served six years of a life sentence, holding tightly to God who is working in him immeasurably more than he could imagine.
