-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
I was measuring flour last night to make play-doh for school, and I realized that filling the measuring cup “to the fullness” of a cup makes all the difference in getting a recipe right.
If I almost filled the cup, then eventually I was adding a little more flour and then a little more until I had “the fullness of a cup.”
As I read Ephesians 3:19 this morning, I asked myself am I truly “filled to the measure of all the fullness of God,” and if not, how could I become filled?
I find myself lacking this fullness on many days, so I looked back to the words before these words in Ephesians 3:19 and read that Paul says,
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 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, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-
Being filled to the measure of all the fullness of God is all about LOVE.
Being rooted in His love
Being established in His love
Gaining power from His love
Sharing His love with others
Grasping His love’s size-its width, its length, its height, its depth
Knowing that His love surpasses our human knowledge (this means we’ll never, ever understand His love completely while we’re on this planet)
The devil is most happy when we doubt God’s love because when we do we are not…………..
FILLED TO THE MEASURE OF ALL FULLNESS OF GOD.
We are lacking.
We come up short.
We feel incomplete.
Today, I want to soak in, reflect upon, and be thankful for…
“Get thee behind me, satan………I am loved with an everlasting love.”
I am praying he gets behind you, too.
You are esteemed highly by the Lord on high.
Praying your cup overflows today with His love and peace,
Tammy What a wonderful way to start the day.
(I am home for a few days)
I enjoyed your reflection this morning. Without knowing the love of the Lord, I don’t know how people make it through their day. I know I can’t. And Satan is all around us and we continually have to push him aside. Breathing in the Holy Spirit each day fills my cup and when I feel that it is not topped off, I close my eyes and reflect as to what Jesus wants me to do now. Thanks for your wonderful spirit filled words through your analogy. I am curious as to what was happening to play dough in your classroom. Love in Jesus together, Sandy going
