I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,
the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources
he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts
as you trust in him.
May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love.
And may you have the power to understand,
as all God's people should,
how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is.
May you experience the love of Christ,
though it is so great you will never fully understand it.
Then you will be filled with the fullness of life
and power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God!
By his mighty power at work within us,
he is able to accomplish infinitely more
than we would ever dare to ask or hope.
May he be given glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus forever
and ever through endless ages.
Eph 3:14-21 NLT
Oh Father I want to be so filled up with Christ that there is no room for anything besides Him. I want to be so filled with you that there is no other object or person that would catch my heart's attention. Oh Father to be so enraptured with Your love that I would be "filled up to all the fullness of God." Oh this is my hearts desire!
Oh Father thank you for your love that fills my every longing.
Thank you for teaching me to run to you when I feel lonely and afraid for your love makes me feel secure.
Thank you for showing me the all those empty places in my heart only needed to be filled with YOU!
Oh Father your love is so deep, so wide, so high and so long that my heart and soul can't contain it!
Fill it up Lord, fill my heart with love so that it overflows!!

You said-"I want to be so filled up with Christ that there is no room for anything besides Him." I know exactly how you feel!
Just like my website and blog says- I always feel like i need 'more of Him'. Then one day read something by either T.Austin Sparks or Watchman Nee (can't remember which) that said:
"You do not need more of the Lord, because He has already given Himself completely to you already. You just need less of everything else."
I thought that was so good- it really stuck with me. Another deep thought :)
May we know what it is like to be filled with more of Him and less of everything else :)
Blessings to you today!!!
I can only say 'Amen' to your prayer. May our Lord continue to fill our hearts with His love so we are able to share His love with others.ReplyDelete
