We know we have been taught about your love for us. We know and believe that you sent your very own son to die a brutal death for us thousands of years ago on the cross, because “you loved us” according to John 3:16.
But Lord, will you show us how to fully grasp your love for us, and begin to live our life from a place of love? Will you bring to us Scripture, revealing your love for us? Today’s verse highlights that your love for us is one that is so large that it cannot be measured. How wide and how long and how high and how deep is your love is for us!
Thank you for loving us. Every part of us. Lord, we ask that you fill the broken cracks and empty holes of our life, the places where we are chasing other people and things to satisfy. We ask that you forgive us today for leaning on lesser loves rather than relying on you, our One True Love. We want to love you and live our lives loving you and only you, as this world leaves us still thirsty for more. Thank you, Lord, that you loved us so much that you haven’t given up on us. That while we are chasing for fulfillment elsewhere, you are waiting right here besides us ready to fill us. Thank you that in you, “we will never be thirsty again” (John 4:14) We choose today to stop frantically grasping and chasing other loves, as we begin to abide in the power, that we grasp your love to fulfill us. We empty everything out as we leave room for you to fill us full on the fullness of your unconditional love for us.
In your name we pray,
