Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV) “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
This week as I was warring through an emotional situation I heard the Lord say to me; You have been fully established. The word established is defined as thriving: started or set up long enough ago and sufficiently successful to suggest likely continuation or permanence; accepted as true: generally recognized as being true or valid; successful: having gained public recognition in a sphere of activity; growing successfully: growing strongly; legally recognized: legally recognized and sometimes financially supported as an official national institution; recognized time-honored and proven
And the Lord says, beloved I have poured out the fullness of My love through My Son and My love for you is completely infallible. My love is incapable of making a mistake. It is incapable of failing and incapable of being mistaken in all matters of principle and truth as it pertains to your life. My love for you is dependable, unfailing, foolproof, reliable, sound, fail-safe, surefire, trustworthy, steady, solid, certain and sure. This is the love in which you have been fully established. My desire for you in this season is to grasp the fullness of My love. As you come to fully know and be persuaded of this love you will be filled beyond even your comprehension. You will be filled with My peace and My joy and you will come to stand firmly on and be completely rooted in the promises that I have made to you even before the foundation of the world. Now I command you to take a firm hold, to embrace, and to seize this love that has now been revealed through My Son and to show eager and prompt willingness and acceptance that nothing in all of creation will ever be able to separate you from the love of your Father. Even as you patiently endure the trials and temptations that have come you must know that I have allowed them for the benefit of maturing you and stretching you, but, I have also used them as an opportunity to lead your heart into a full understanding and expression of My love. You have been established in Love now be empowered and go forward in this same Love.
Colossians 1:22-24 (NIV) “But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.”
